3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a murky copper, with a fizzy, short-lived head - aroma of melon, apricot, cranberry, a lot of earthy, musky character, and a slightly wild quality - full carbonation in the mouth - semi-sour and quite earthy up front, with tart cranberry flavors, and a near lambic-like funkiness - moderate acidity - starts getting a little sweet through the middle, but just a tiny bit - flavors of melon rind and orange couple with this, and it gets a little grainy near the finish - ends tart, semi-dry, and moderately hoppy - quite an interesting beer, like a strong belgian mixed with a small portion of lambic - nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
color is dark orange/copper. Aroma is stingy, nose tickling, esters. a little too much - strong topical fruit and berries. It’s coming off almost solvent-like. Taste is melon with a bit of an alcoholic edge. Either its too young or just needs a little something else.
330mL bottle @ Spuyten Duyvil poured into Westmalle Goblet.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at The Diamond.Poured a cloudy brown,like cloudy apple juice. The nose has some sourness to it. and was on the malty side. Interesting what I guess would be a combination beer, some american style hops, some sourness, all combined with belgian yeasts. Hoppy dry finish.Pretty tastey.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home. Orange blonde color. Again a gusher from this brewery. Pours an enormous head. In fact it is very difficult to pour this beer.
Tangerine in the plesant aroma. Alcoholic, yeasty flavor. Sweet with tangerine and vegetable notes. A bit short perfumed aftertaste. Could and should be much better.
