3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Rogue Ales and Public House, Portland.
Yeasty wheat aroma; a bit fruity. Very sweet and very alcoholic up front, then with a wildly bitter hop and alcohol finish. A bit too cloying, but then the hammer falls. Interesting interpretation of a tripel, though could be better assembled.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This orange ale poured with a thin off-white head, eliciting a fruity aroma. The flavor is very harsh for a tripel-style ale. The candy sugar is quite noticeable, and there are notes of citrus, herbs and cinnamon. However, it was not as sweet as I expected. This beer is drinkable, but not remarkable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, thanks Aaron for the pour! Pour is fizzy orange yellow, slightly hazy, thin to no white head. Aroma has notes of some grape, pear and slight peach notes, some off sugary candy notes with hints of bready and biscuity malts, no spice in there. Taste is some sweet candied fruits with pear and lots of grape notes, hints of some biscuity bread notes, getting to a touch of ethanol, finishing very sweet. Eh.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Blind Tiger. Pale golden lightly hazy with a thick white head. Aroma is lightly spicy but with a distinct fruity apple/peach aroma as well. The flavour is lightly fruity with a honeyish sweetness and a bit of herbal character on the back. It’s way too sweet but the malts are fairly authentic. Lightly spicy. It’s okay.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very nice nose of burnt bananas, bread crust and sweet banana pudding. Sweet up front turning to salty and dry on the back - good hearty dry texture in the finish, with some light biting hops. Mellow yeast flavor present as well. Very good stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Amber beer with an off-white head. Malty, yeasty, slight citrus and earth aroma. Sweet orange and malt flavor with yeast, a bit of dust, and earth. Possibly a bit of tartness as well. Medium body - carbonation a little low. Lingering orange, citrus, malt, and yeast. Different, but not bad.

750. Pours amber orangey with an enormous fluffy white cumulus head. Big pear and apple nose, smells dry. Tastes dry, with the apple notes predominating. Not much else going on, other than a wee splash of herbal notes in the attack as it warms.
