3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours almost like a hefe-weizen: hazy pale golden color with contrasting white head. Nose is herbal & grassy with a suggestion of peach rind. On the palate this one is razor sharp, but pleasing with tangy/tart herbal hop flavors with a background of malt. Finishes dry.
it doesn’t fit any style well, but strong ale fits best, though there were yeast caracteristics that made me think it may be a BSA. Oh well. A decent beer. Underrated IMO, even though i liked it less than most at the shindig." Leighton (21255) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2013
Sampled at the Funky 8 - Brooklyn, NYC. Sweet. Full bodied. Warming. Lots of rich malts, bread, spices, toasted sugars. Not bad. Taosmax (25) - - JUL 22, 2013
Aroma of spices, pepper, and slight fruit. Taste of citrus, pepper, and some dryness. I had this beer on tap at Steamworks, and loved it. Ignatious (15) - Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Draft @ brewpub. Flavor is lightly sweet and slightly bitter with an abrupt flavor. While not a fan of many of Steamworks brand brews, Ale Diablo is a great drink with a little bit of kick. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 3, 2011
Draft @ brewpub. I believe this version was with Chardonnay yeast. Gold with lots of rising bubbles. Interesting aroma begs one to contemplate the importance of yeast in brewing. The white wine yeast transforms this beer, and creates a fabulous, trippy aroma of green grapes and apples, in a good way, very winey. Great drinkability, and does not taste strong. Clean and with an off-dry finish. Lots of sugars on the palate. Has intense Gewurtztraminer flavors with a nutty malt undertone that gives the kind of body I always wish a white wine would have. A fabulous experiment and drinking experience.

Draught. Aged in wine barrels. This was light gold and sparkly. The aroma is vinous, footy with light bready malt notes. Woody, vinous palate. Maybe a bit thick. Slightly funky/footy. Not really something that works for me. hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 21, 2011

(bottle, 5/3/10) Clear gold color. Medium off white head. Moderate spice aroma with malty sweetness. Light flavors of the same. Avg duration. Light dry finish. Slick texture. Soft carbonation. Spare lacing. alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JAN 25, 2011
Bottle; poured a slightly cloudy color; lightish amber. Not much head. Aroma of not much; it is an old bottle so maybe that played a role. Flavor was ok; pretty sweet, well really sweet. Like sweet cereal with sugar. A bit of fruit, and dishwater. The devil made me do it. DocLock (10683) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Bottle from Smith’s. Pours turbid orangy gold w 1f ow head. Nose is bready rock sugary pale malt, hops, spice. Tastes rock sugary funky malty, with floral, spicy, and citric notes. Gets champagny late, and is a tad overcarbonated.
