From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
New Belgium French Oak Saison

If you like white wine you'll like this 7.5% Saison / Farmhouse ale.
The nose brings mild oak. green apple, and citrus,  It features a
green apple flavor along with lime, lemon, grapefruit, orange and
some kiwi. Finish brings a nice white wine tartnesswith just a vague
hint of hops. This is limited so if you see it give it a try.

Overall Rating: Very Good
Revolution Sun Crusher

This a 5.5% ABV American Pale Wheat Ale.  It opens with a light,
flowery, citrus aroma along with some herbal notes.  Taste brings
wheat, citrus hops, orange, grapefruit and light wheat flavors.  Hops
more up front as the finish nears.  Overall well balanced.  This is a
very refreshing summer thirst quencher that is still an interesting
beer. That alone separates it from many other offerings.

Overall Rating:Good+
Having sampled nearly 7,000 different beers in my
capacity as a fully certified taster I can promise
honest, thoughtful, and careful evaluations.  However,
remember that these reviews are totally subjective.  
Consider this column an informative resource only.  
The bottom line is to trust your own judgment and
keep drinking!

Rogue Honey Kolsch

With a 5% ABV this Kolsch opens with a light
nose of floral nose featuring honey, cereal
grains and malt.  Malt notes lead the flavor
profile with dough, grassy grain and honey
following.  The finish is dry with a light
sweetness as honey move to the front
followed by just a whisper of hop bitterness.  
Well made but alas it's nothing special
