3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Farmers’ Cabinet.
Pours a hazy pale golden orange color with golden yellowish-apricot hues and a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Chunks of lace left behind.
Sweet boozy aroma with a strong barrel character. Hints of earthy oak, vanilla and brandy along with some funky yeast, mustard seed and citrus fruit.
Medium bodied with a nice combination of earthy oak, zesty spice and boozy heat. Lots of spice especially coriander and pepper up front countered by earthy oak, vanill and prominent boozy sweet brandy. Althought the spirit flavor is prominent, it’s not too hot making it pretty quaffable. Sweet citrus notes with more of a pronounced mustard character than the base version. Spicy finish with lemon and orange peel toward the end of the swallow with a nice warm finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Acquired in a trade with phaleslu! Pours a cloudy golden-orange color with white head. Aroma has loads of fruit like apple and peach. Some spice is there too. Taste is sweet with some underlying fruitiness and a little spice. Medium bodied and smooth. A little alcohol burn is there. Really pretty awesome and it exceeded my expectations considering the mustard seeds.

bottle at the Pre-ZBF pours amber with no head. Aroma is fruity and sweet smelling with faint wood notes. This one turned out more bitter than the Bourgogne, but it is a pleasant spice/earthy bitterness that shines in the finish. A very nice and enjoyable beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled sample consumed at Avenue Pub. Gold in colour with moderate yet spritzy carbonation. Aromas are of sour citrus, oak, liquor (maybe white vermouth), and mustard. Flavours are of more sour fruit, wood, white grapes, vanilla, and a bit of balsamic vinegar. Round mouthfeel and a bit boozy. Not bad.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Part of the first German beer tasting in Idar-Oberstein. Thanks to Steptin. Light orange color with no head. Aroma is pine, and sweet candy. The taste is very sour and some spice, Palate is terible. Not a good beer at all in my book. Why would someone want to drink this?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by Dan. Aroma is dulled hops; citrus, and resin; oak, peach and mustard. Pours chunky and murky with small chunky film. Looks like cider sludge. Taste is pleasant with peach notes, vanilla oak, slight bar mustard and a resin hop finish. Nice enough but I was unimpressed.

4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Cloudy, half-set honey with a fade from straw-gold to tiger orange all topped with a creamy crest - picture perfect. Lemony Belgian yeast aromas mingle with a bandy burn on the nose. Smooth and sleek on the tongue carrying puffy wafts of sweet and sour. A tiny detection of light hopping and a spirituous richness that sticks in the throat. An amazing beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy cider colored with very little head. Aroma is like a cider fermented with brett. Sweet and spicy with that pleasant pineapple and barn. Taste is the same, with more bretty bitterness and tannic woodiness well after the finish. Some warming alcohol.
