3.6/5  rDev -12.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a foggy yellow color speckled with sentiment that stays floating in place in the glass. Two finger head topping he brew that got smaller only after sipping. Smells of apple juice with slight banana and raisin with slight yeast. Taste has more yeast than he smell and the taste of the fruit isnt as pronounced as the smell. I expected lots from the aroma of the beer. It is a good beer and I'd like to try aging this for a second chance

4.35/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

a: golden hue with an ample white/slightly off-white head. Small lacing that retains fairly well.
s: On the nose I get pear, apples, and honey.
t: prickly carbonation, slightly tart with lemon, pepper, coriander coming through; finish with floral, spicy hops lingering
m: high carbonation, medium-light body
o: nice beer. I don't drink a lot in this style, but it's one of the better versions I've had in recent memory. This inexplicably sat in my cellar for a year (bottled 4/22/2013), and I am pleasantly surprised at how it has held up. Will get again next time I am within their distributors' range.
