4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It doesn’t happen that often anymore, but sometimes I stumble upon a beer with such an amazing aroma that I get goosebumps. Gluttony is such a beer. The intense aroma is the perfect mix of a massive sweet caramel malty wall and a fruity hoppy overdose. I get delicious notes of overripe tropical fruits, mango and peach are in front, nicely backed up by crisp orange. The flavour is very strong and again very well balanced with the notes of the aroma. In addition I get pine, well integrated alcohol, and as the beer gets close to room temperature (I’m a slow drinker) I even get some sweet honey notes. It’s a close to full-bodied beer with a smooth and oily texture and a fitting soft carbonation. Absolutely fabulous!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
New Beer Distributors, NYC 50 cl ($9): Pours orange wiht a white head. Aroma is a whole hock of tropical fruits (literally one hock). Sharp resiny feel to it as well. Tropical, but not so much citrus as it is other stuff. Taste is bitter and has a very distinct taste that I am somehow misplacing... something... perhaps passion-fruit. In any case, the bitterness is sharp and leaves a powerful aftertaste. Fortunately, this is not too sweet. I kind of agree with some that this is directionless in some sense. But as far as directionless beers go, I could imagine something much worse.
