3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottle, purchased @ Smiley’s, Dover, NH. Used shaker glass. Amber color. Light retention. Nose of Belgian yeast and caramel malt. The relationship between the yeast and the malt mingles real well. Taste balances nice between sweet and hoppy. Bread and some Earthy hop notes. Medium body, moderate carbonation. I didn’t know what to expect from this one, decent. Some good drinkability.

Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike!
The beer has a mild haze and appears orange hued. The head is white and thin, fading rapidly. The aroma is odd, with fruit, funk, malt, and a generally odd scent. The flavor isn’t particularly enjoyable either. This beer is just a bit off. Low carbonation. Not a repeat.

Draught @ Galaxy Hut, Arlington, VA. Pours slughtly hazy amber with small white head. Clear aroma of hops and yeast. Sweetish flavour of fruit, malt and hops. Rather rough aftertatse. OK but nothing to write home about.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy murky reddish brown with a one finger bubbly beige head that slowly recedes. Smells of caramel, brown sugar and biscuit with a hint of fruit and spice. Taste is rich and malty with lots of caramel sugar and dark fruits. Hints of pepper and spice round out the taste. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation, sweet almost sticky mouthfeel. I enjoyed this one. It really wasn’t what I was expecting, but it is a tasty beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the 650 ml. bottle marked Fall 2013, no. 1434. It pours a cloudy medium amber with a quick head that fizzles. On the nose I get butter and caramel malts as well as a mild spiciness but little in the way of hops. Not off-putting. The body is medium. The taste is upfront sweet with many Belgian esters and a low to moderate bitterness at the end. But there is also something rather cardboard-like going on. Still, I found it to be relatively easy to drink and enjoy.

A dark beautiful frothy amber brew. Nice fruit-nut aroma. Flavor is rich and nutty, almost smoky, but very smooth drinking. Not overly sweet. Very well balanced. Somewhat tart finish. I really like this one. By far the best White Birch brew I’ve tried yet!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: clear coppery red, with two fingers of near white head. Aroma: notes of caramel, toffee, rye, pepper, and a clearly Belgian strain of yeast that imparts a good does of barnyard funk. Taste: as the aroma indicates, almost exactly. Finish: full finish, but slightly muddled. Notes: This is better than average. The Belgiany yeast against pretty traditional amber/red ale flavors made for an interesting beer.

Brune aux reflets rougeâtres avec une fine mousse crème. Nez de miel. En bouche, des notes de caramel dominent sur un fond d’alcool. Un peu de fruits rouges surgissent en rappel.
