Sample @ ABR 2017. Brilliantly clear golden pour with a tiny head. Engaging aroma - general herbal accents. Mountain meadow. White fruit jellies. Nicely balanced flavor. Soft fruit. Some gentle botanicals. Light doughiness. Medium bodied. Soft carbonation.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2018 Clear gold pour with a two finger chunky, bright white head. Aroma is sweet, citrusy, a hint of banana, light solvent, a hint of cereal and very light minty herbality. Flavor is light sweet rice, pale caramel, some overripe fruit, light, sweet solvent, zesty and cooked oranges, a little banana oil. Medium body, syrupy, somewhat slick body, medium carbonation, halfway pleasant boozy burn. Good stuff, not great, a little too sweet and boozy for what else is going on..

bomber @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of malt. Nearly clear medium amber color, foamy white head that stays at one finger, lots of lace strands. Taste is crisp, clean malt (or could it be the sake and rice?) that sweeps through a moderately bittered swallow to a long finish in which sweet tea becomes more and more present. Dangerously easy to drink. Alcohol is well-hidden until you feel the warm 2-3 minutes later. Highly recommended.

I thought I was getting something harder to find but I see now that it isn't just at the brewery... Golden, clear, good white lacing. Fruity, interesting crisp flavors. (On tap at brewery, Labor Day weekend 2017, tour of northern breweries with Jazz88).

Quart bottle. Does on need 32oz of 9% beer? I mean, 22oz and 40oz seem like nice enough quantities. Pours a clear dim golden with a medium head. Very traditional golden beer and head appearance. Aroma is strong with a very clear and clean maltiness. Some undistinct American hops. Flavor has a fruit bite with a malt biscuit backbone. Aftertaste has dry biscuit fruitness. Interesting beer. Lots of clean stuff going on.

$8.79 quart bottle from Wine Warehouse. Pours gold with a small white head. Aroma is lemon zest, minor orange, peach. Flavor is bitter peach, apricot, orange, earth, glue - similar to some saki aftertastes, grass, minor pine. Nice. Glad I like it... won't have a problem finishing this one.

Rated at home at Thanksgiving Pours a clear gol color with a foamy white head. Nose of stone fruit and citrus. Medium body and the typical oily sick mouthfeel that is so typical of their beers. Flavor is as the aroma with fruit and citrus with an interesting spiciness that adds another dimension. Finishes quite dry and bitter. Easy drinking and enjoyable. Goes good with everything at Thanksgiving dinner. Very good.

Very interesting tasty beer. Aroma is fruity pineapple and sweet some caramel and Spice. Appearance is a clear gold Amber with an off-white smallish long lasting head and a little lace. Flavor is bittersweet with some Piney resin and malt. Kind of a sake finish good stuff.
