3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
5th Annual MBG Winter Beer Festival, Grand Rapids. Hazy, pulpy yellow body, thin off-white head. Very nice perfumey, flowery nose. Slightly tart body, floral and herbal, with modest sweetness. The zingy, bitter juniper berries become evident after a couple sips and add an interesting complexity. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this on tap at the MBG Winter Fest 10’. Poured light golden color. Aroma was earthy spruce, aromatic herbs and earthy hops. Taste was light malty sweetness, a touch of funk and a very dry finish. Very light feel in the mouth, quite dry with sharp carbonation. Not bad, but I think I will stick with regular bam.

Sampled at the ’10 MBGWF. Golden colored pour with a big loose white head. Minty, floral an herbal notes backed up by some honey sweetness and typical dry JP funk on the finish. Medium, creamy body with lots of carbonation.
