3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2009-08-01. Hazy pastel golden body body, modest beige head. (3+) Interesting aroma, fruit/wood/bourbon? (6+) Flavour is a bit muddled, light sour touches, wood, mild malt is odd. Average palate. Meh. Okay, but muddled at times, doesn’t come together very well at times. Bottle at BCTC

Bottle, 75cl, courtesy of yespr. A hazy, orange gusher giving a white head. Slightly oaked nose with vanilla and brett notes. Citrus too. The flavor is acidic, with pale malts and brett, fruityness and a vinous touch. Effervescent and quite dry in the mouth. Some alcohol when disappearing down the throat. Not so very good initially, but gets better as you drink it. 090822
