3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
75cl bottle from Willow Bend Liquors (Tampa, FL). Pours a slightly hazy yet mostly clear golden amber color with a one finger frothy white head that settles slowly and laces the glass. Aroma is bready and yeasty with some subtle sweet notes, hints of caramel and a touch of hoppiness. Flavor is slightly sweet and slight malty with some notes of honey, ripe fruit, hint of flowers and just a bit of phenol toward finish. Generally medium body with a sweet finish.

Tasting at mcbakcus house. Ok beer. Golden color, small white head. Smell has some hops, cider, fruit, and something interesting...spices maybe. Flavor is fruity, yeast, and a very slight hop bite. Not bad at all.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of cereal grains and corriander, a little sweet smelling. Golden color and fairly clear. Flavors of pear, apple, and peaches mixed with alcohol and herb flavors. A little bit of banana and vanilla flavors mixed with grassy herb flavors. Not much hoppiness at all. Light head and carbonation. Overall, pretty good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden with high clarity and thin white head giving the appearance of carbonated apple juice. Aromas of straw and barnyard funk with a mild citrus hop bouquet. Big yeasty flavors followed by alcohol heat and mildly sweet pear in the middle finishing with an Orval like astringency. Good, medium body. Not a bad mix of a Belgian Golden and a Tripel.
Aroma hay, citrus, barnyard,

Deep golden color pour with a big creamy head. Aroma of light fruit, malt, spicy hops and yeast. Flavor is sweet and fruity, most notably peaches, apples and citrus. Finishes with a slightly bitter hop bite and a hit of alcohol. Creamy, well carbonated on the palate. Very good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle corked & caged from Natomas BevMo. Orange tinged golden color with a two finger white head. Aromas of pale malt, citrus, light stone fruits, and mild yeast. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is sweet malt, light fruit, mild spicey hop - grassy? Each mouthful starts a bit sweet, but it reduces towards moderate astringency or bitter. Perhaps tilted a bit towards a tripel. The alcohol is not noticeable, except in my brain. Not a waste of money - it’s a pretty good ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy gold with a huge white head. Thick lacing. Apples, honey, musty yeast, bananas, and soap in the nose. Super-sweet to the point it became too much. Honey, saaz, grain, sugar, banana, fruit, and more sugary sweetness. Good in moderation. Find a couple people to drink the 750 ml bottle with.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A superb pour complete with tall rising froth that lingers leaving textbook lacing. Aromas are strong with banana gum and tropicals. Full nectar with ample residual effers. The texture is pillow soft. Strong flavors with a moderate sweetness factored in. A huge malty backbone accompanied by a defined peachpit hop presence creates a sort of balance but this brew is so rich it seems impossible. Banana gum, vanilla bean, citrus, and stone fruit. The finish is bittered pleasantly. A solid brew true to it’s style.
