F me! Two beers tonight that sucked.

The best way to describe this beer is European Corona. Bleh! Side note..... their St. Armand is delicious.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml corked bottle pours blonde in color with a huge white head that retains well and leaves some thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is light malts with some fruits, yeast and light hops. Taste is fruity with a light malt sweetness and mild hop bitterness with some yeast. Very spritzy carbonation and modest body provides and nice sensation on the palate. A very appealing brew that is highly recommended.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled Jan. 23 2009. Crystal clear deep golden, almost no head. The nose is very floral, green grapes, chardonnay, peaches. Light to medium bodied, nice sweet malt base, lots of apple cider and pear flavors, musty and earthy, and a grassy and slightly dry finish that tastes of dusty hops. Nicely balanced, nicely aged, very sophisticated.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A murky orange color with a diminishing beige head. The aroma contains some citrus, bread, and floral notes. The flavor is a bit dry with some citrus, earthy notes, and a hint of caramel. Not as sweet as many I’ve had from this style. Overall more like a simple Belgian than anything but not bad.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Appearance: lightly hazed golden pour with a two finger white head. Aroma: some doughy malts, with floral and yeasty notes. Taste: a bit of crackery pie crust, honey, and strong banana-y esters. Finish: slick, sweetish, with lingering yeasty banana notes. Notes: Did not care for this at all. Flavors seemed muddled, palate was almost oily and flat, and the nose seemed off. Perhaps an overly old bottle.
