3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle purchased at Bella Vino in Athens, Ohio. The pour is a lightly hazed orange golden, with a smallish off white head. The aroma is lightly sweet fruit (sort of a mix between grape, pear and maybe a hint of tropical fruit?), a touch of phenol, and a bit of fruit skin earthiness. The taste is light cracker malt, the fruit sweetness, soft and naturally sweet, and a bit of the yeast and phenol in the back. The fruit in the taste is similar to the nose, a natural grape, pear tropiacl fruit sweetness. It’s interesting, and quite unique. The palate is medium to light bodied, a lower soft carbonation level, and the yeasty sweet aftertaste. Interesting beer for certain. I have never tasted PawPaw fruit, and I think my understanding of this beer would improve if I had.
Sample at Buckeye Beer Engine on 9/14/14. Clear yellow pour with a medium white head. Aroma of malt, berry and tropical fruit. Malty flavor with sweet tropical fruit character and berry before a sweet finish. joshwoodward (575) - - NOV 25, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2013 From a bomber. Hmm, decent, but nothing all that interesting. No discernible pawpaw flavor, sadly. Slight sour quality. Ratman197 (14822) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Bomber poured a clear gold with a small lingering white head. Aromas of pawpaws and cookie. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of pawpaws and bread with a crisp lingering fruity finish. alexsdad06 (10379) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Draft at Dutch’s in September 2012. Pours a golden amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor is mildly tangy, apple, citrus, grassy, pale malts, a hint of grapes, lightly toasted even a slight peppery spice with mild bitterness to the finish. Interesting, but nothing is really big. Had to work to get the aroma. madmitch76 (24789) - , Essex, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2013

Hazy gold beer, little white head. Palate is light and crisp. Minerals. Mild orange, a little cream in the malt. The Paw Paw is subtle but definitely there. Crisp finish. Not bad but of you going to call your beer after a fruit then why not showcase the fruit rather than apologise for it?
Tap at Buckeye, unfortunately the pawpaw fruit smell is lovely but doesnt translate into a drinkable beer, the nose is good and unique but the flavor with the wheat beer base doesnt meld as well. GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 30, 2012
651mL thanks to jmikolich. Pours a low haze lighter orange. Small white head. Spotty lace. Nose is a bit toffee, butterscotch. Taste is slight orange juice, small kumquat. Mostly caramel and some lemon juice. Decent. No cloying. Not bitter.

Thanks to gt2. Mostly clear orange gold with ok bubbly head. Nose and flavor marked with bits of weird fruity sweetness, cereal grain, apricot. Average palate, medium body. All right. jsquire (4483) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Pale golden color with a fluffy white head. Weird floral, soapy nose. Thin sweetness with an odd lavender and camomille soap tastes. Some lemon lime citrus. I’ve had pawpaws before but I don’t get what they were supposed to add to this beer. b3shine (8864) - Indiana, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks fine; a transparent gold with white lacing. Smells oddly fruity. Tastes like it smells, only worse. Mouthfeel is average (at best). Fail.
