2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy orange pour with a small white head. Hmm, mustard... Yes, I enjoy mustard, in a beer it is so-so for me. Fruity and spicy throughout, the mustard soft in the finish, but I didn’t think it added much, more just a dry spicy kick. I thought the worst thing about this beer was the excess alcohol, hot and boozy, very distracting. Kinda tastes like a boozy tripel, but with a bit of extra spice to the finish, almost a little spicy heat creeps back up afterward. This just didn’t jive well for me.

Taster - Brouwers Cafe - Seattle, WA
Aroma – Strong mustard seed aroma with a Belgian yeast lingering.
Appearance – Mustard Golden in color, Hazy with a nice head.
Flavor – This was a very Belgian flavored beer. With a hint of mustard in the back of the flavor. Weird flavor to add.
Palate – Nice Mouthfeel, Good texture with a dry finish.
Overall – This was a OK beer nothing too special the mustard was why we tried it and wow it was odd. One of the oddest I have had.

Aroma and taste. sme floating sediments, yeasty and spicy (there is a definite mustard presence) lightly hoppy, and the beer is definitely loaded with alcohol.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Brick Store. Pours a bright, opaque yellow-orange with a large fluffy white head that shows great retention and lacing. The beer was described to me as an ale brewed with mustard seeds though the dominate aroma and flavor throughout, for me, was apples. The aroma was very sweet with the aforementioned apples with a hint of tartness. Maybe a hint of mustard if you really try to find it. The flavor is a complex blend of light fruits with green and red apples, pears, apricots and a little bit of hops in the finish. The mouthfeel is very smooth with good carbonation. Exceptional drinkability given the ABV. I enjoyed this beer and it was like no beer I have had before. Recommended.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33 cl. Blood orange-colored with mid-sized solids afloat throughout; almost resembles a broth. Small, lasting head leaves a frosting all around the glass. Sweet-n-spicy aroma is hard to peg, but seems akin to earthy spiced apple-pear, and maybe some brown sugar. Flavor is baked tart apple and pineapple with a twist of orange-lime, cherry, and a sprinkle of caramelized brown sugar. Light musty leather, pepper, oak and evergreen resin slide in at the finish for nice balance. I detect no alcohol except for some slight warming and a bit of aftertaste. Medium body is softly carbonated and finishes slightly dry. Interesting brew with some unique flavors; would never guess mustard seed as the only spice is this one.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from PP bottle shop. Another >10.1% rating woohoo, and a mustard beer at that. What a mustard beer? That’s what I said. Color is a yellow amber. Little chunks floating in the beer. Interesting aroma. I suppose that could be the mustard. Possibly a little bit plasticy. I think this aroma is directly related to the high alcohol content. Very bready aroma. I give it an 8, just because it is interesting.
Thin wispy head dances on the surface. There is a little bit of pleasant tartness, like a sour plum. Leans a little sweet. Lots of bitterness, like the skin of a plum, maybe some grapefruit. OK beer, but Kudos for being interesting.
