4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 750ml, at Novare Res, Portland, Maine. An unclear yellow-orange beer with a dense light beige head. The aroma is lightly oxidized, vinous and quite fruity, with a nice peppery touch, peaches, some lemon hints, cellar, white wine grapes and some barnyard hints. It’s full bodied, lightly warming, soft and dry, with flavors of peppery yeast, peaches, generic fruityness, cellar and funk notes and some sweetish maltyness. Decent bitterness too. Lasting fruity and yeast funky finish with a peppery touch. A true beauty. 150609

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 c&c from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours burnished brass with a 3 finer creamy/fizzy white head. Aroma is soapy pepper. Not bad, just unusual. Med + body. Flavor is very pepper with some Belgian yeast/spice aspects. It’s even a bit earthy. Whatever it is supposed to be, it’s good enough to be a Belgian. Nice peppery earthy finish. Yum!

Light barnyard, somewhat peppery, light lemon, a touch toasty malty flavor. Tasty but a bit disappointing from one of my favorite breweries.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour on tap, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of lots of pepper, slight grainy notes with lots of Belgian yeast notes, slight vanilla, hints of fruit, lemon, touch of floral notes into a hint of oaky notes. Taste is a mix of lots of pepper, mixing into the yeast, slight ester notes with pear, touch of grape, hints of oak in there somehow with a touch of biscuit and bread, finishing sweet. Didn’t really work well for me unfortunately.
