A: orange yellow colored with thick white head of foam

S: citrus, fruity, hop aroma, also I get a hint of honey from the smell

T: light, sweet, smooth, berries, honey, no bitterness

M: covers your palate with honey and fruit

O: It is a really enjoyable beer, reminds me of Spring time and has a great drink ability. I absolutely love this beer because it is surprisingly light, the experience I have with Rogue is usually a large big beer taste (which I typically favor). I like the strong fruit flavors from this beer.

Appearance: Golden color. Pale head with very little retention and very little lacing. Almost no visible carbonation.

Smell: Fruity and floral. Apple-like aroma.

Taste: Fruity and light with a slight apple flavor. No discernible pine flavor despite the juniper. Very dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Light, but highly carbonated.

Overall: Fruity and light. Not what I was expecting at all out of a winter seasonal brewed with juniper. Reminds me slightly of a witbier.

Pours hazy orange, low head, somewhat sticky.
Big herbal smell, definitely juniper berries, pine, citrus, ripe fruit and flowers, also caramel malts.
Big green herbs straight from the beginning, with tons of grass, pine and the juniper berries spicy, astringent and prickly. Big floral notes. Fruit is next, with peach, tangerine and red apple, but way weaker than the herbal notes. Spiciness is also pretty one-sided. Pale malts, with a light sweetness. The hops are really bitter in the finish, with a metallic aftertaste which i wasn't expecting and isn't too pleasant.
Drinks like a nice ale, medium carbonation. Really dry in the finish after a few more sips.
A decent new one for me, but can't say it rocked my world.

Juniper pale ale pours a darker golden color with a small lacing head. There is a dry fruity aroma, with a sharp malt notes. The taste has a sharp and strong malty backbone, with some juniper flavors coming through near the end, finishes dry, which I like. Good flavors, good body, but cheap beer base. Overall its almost a good beer, I like the juniper flavors, but the cheap beer base really hurts this.

poured from a bottle into a pint glass

hazy apple juice yellow with a thin large bubble head. smells pretty good, a little bit of crunchy fruit and a bit of grass - that might be the juniper - I'm not sure I would be able to pick out the juniper smell without knowing it was there already. likewise with the taste. i think i got some juniper flavor - but i was looking for it. tastes like a pilsner with a little bit of lawn clipping. i like it and would not turn one down, but as this isn't one of rogue's most common beers there will probably be something I'd prefer if I'm in a place that has it.
