Dark amber, weak head. Very toasty kind of burnt plastic on the nose. Very toasty palate, again more burnt than anything else. Look past the lack of clean and it’s passable.

Bottle, 25cL. Home. A brown-orange opaque beer with a big off-white foamy head ; good retention and lacing. Herb, fruits (citrus, red berries such as blackberry), pepper. Light to medium dry bitter, refreshing, sweet note. Light body, light silky texture, average carbonation, dry fruity bitter finish. Overall, a good fruity bitter french light beer ; really pleasant.

Hazy blonde. Quite husky. Has a big frothy head. A bit of hop bitterness and vague citrus, but totally unrefined.

Sample at Chappy’s in Dayton. This brew pours a pale orange color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily to a sparse outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of fruit, hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of citrus, grassy hops and biscuit malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

On tap at Heathen, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma smells like a mojito, with lots of fresh mint and lime. Flavour is quite aggressive, with tons of fresh mint leaves and lime juice. Actually works really well for what it is. Finishes lightly acidic and fairly tart. Nice for what it is.

On tap at Heathen, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma smells more like a stout than a sour, with roasted malt upfront, and maybe some of the funky critters in back. Flavour is bizarrely blended, with lots of lacto and funky yeast upfront dominating. Very tart, quite acidic and vinegary. I don’t think this experiment worked very well.

Draft at Bierrex. Hazy golden color, white head. Aroma of earthy lemin. Taste is earthy, dank, sweaty. Interesting.

On tap at Heathen, pours black with a tiny head. Aroma smells like chocolate milk indeed, with lots of lactose sweetness and cocoa. Flavour is along the same lines, but quite disharmonious, with the cocoa and lactose not meshing well - it produces a phenolic character on the finish. Needs works.

On tap at Heathen, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of fruity esters, Belgian yeast and sweet cereal malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with high sweetness overall, loads of esters and phenols. Way too sweet, cloying on the finish. Unsurprisingly, another way too sweet American tripel.

On tap at Heathen, pours a hazy copper golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out a big blast of citrus and piney hops, not much else in this hop bomb. Flavour is fairly brutal, with lots of piney and citrus hops. But it’s quite messy and harsh. A brutal IPA. Not so great.

Bottle shared in W2 - sourced from Eebria. Pours deep brown with a creamy, tan head. Lightly roasted malts in the nose, toasted biscuits, faint cocoa and caramel. Medium sweet flavour with rich bready malts, more toast, toffee, mild scorched earth. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Nicely balanced finish, more of the same, toasted biscuit, faint dried fruits. Really enjoyable beer.

Bottle thanks to LKS. It pours dark brown with a decent beige head. The aroma is bitter - sweet, brown bread, malt loaf, cocoa, treacle, toast and cereal. The taste is bitter - sweet, malt - driven, toasted grain, earth, wood, leather, toasted nut and cacao nibs with a drying, toasty finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Decent.

On tap at Belmont Station, pours a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is extremely complex, with notes of red wine, hazelnuts, light cherry and a touch of balsamic. Flavour is big on the hazelnuts upfront, followed by red wine, light balsamic and a very gentle acidity. The hazelnut notes really come through as the strongest note. Very enjoyable.

On tap at Belmont Station, pours a clear yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out loads of dank hops upfront, along with melons and cantaloupe. Flavour is much the same, with tons of dank piney hops and the aforementioned tropical fruitiness. Fairly aggressive but not harsh in any way - strikes me as more of an IPA. Excellent.

On tap at Tin Bucket, pours a pretty clear yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of resinous hop oils and some citrusy notes. Flavour is along the same lines, with resinous hop oils and fairly restrained citrus fruits. Clean and easy to drink. Nice IPA.

On tap at Fire on the Mountain - Fremont, pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out dank, earthy hops with some vegetal notes. Flavour is similar, with herbal hops and tons of vegetal notes that ruin this. Quite off it seems. Not too good.

On tap at Fire on the Mountain - Fremont, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of Belgian yeast upfront, followed by piney hops and dry biscuity malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with piney hops and sweet Belgian yeast vying for frontrunner, with a dry biscuity malt finish. A bit jagged but reasonably balanced. Meh.

On tap at Alameda, pours a hazy amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out tart black currants and somewhat puckering tartness. Flavour is much the same, with lots of black currants, moderate sourness and even moderate sweetness. A touch of spicy Belgian yeast but it’s pretty buried. Decent, but unexciting.
