From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
Southern Tier Unearthly

This imperial IPA immediately opens with a nose of grapefruit and hints
of pine. The taste brings more pine, grass, floral notes, and citrusy hops in
a background of bread, caramel, and honey-malt.  It finishes with a
somewhat sweet alcoholic thickness which is not surprising considering it
comes in at 11.2% ABV.  Overall a solid, well made brew.

Overall rating: above average
Karmeliet Triple

First smells bring thoughts of champagne or a semi-dry white
wine.  First sip brings subtle sweet grape flavors followed by
slightly tart green apple, gritty pear and sweet peach. A
spiciness hides in the background with a touch of sweet honey.
The finish leaves notes of bread and citrus. Mouthfeel is crisp
and refreshing, with punchy bright carbonation.  Refreshing with
a well hidden 8.2% ABV kick.

Overall Rating -  very good
Having sampled well over 3,500 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!

Aromas of sweet malt with honey greet you
in the first pour. Leafy, somewhat herbal
flavors mix with a soft fruitiness in a lightly
sweet background.  A grainy yeast character
appears at the finish with light notes of
fruit,  strawberry and watery banana.  It
claims to be a in the style of a Belgium Pale
Ale but falls far short of the best in that
