4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
19.06.2013, 0,75l bottle shared with Palme @ The Ginger Man NY:
Small creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly rich, lots of sour red currants (kind of like I remembered my grandmother’s home made red currants juice), broth, grass, vinegar, heather. Taste is slightly sour grassy, red currants, grass, berry skin, minerals, sorrel, heather. Dry mouthfeel. Never heard of the brewery before, and had absolutely no expectations at all, despite good ratings. This was actually really nice, and being this old, I really wouldn’t mind more of this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Grabbed this off shelf at Murrays Cheese. Pours a hideous murky swamp water color. Nose is tart and of fruits. Tastes tart of cherries, floral hops, woody, and ginger. Funky and easy drinking.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml flip top bottle. Pours a cloudy brownish amber with no head. Aroma and Taste of sweet malt, Belgian yeast, very fruity, some plums and raisins, slightly sour tart flavor. Palate is a medium body, light carbonation, mildly tart flavor. Finishes with Belgian yeast, fruity, plums and raisins, ending I’d mildly sweet tart and fruity. Overall a good drinking Belgian brew.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2013 Bottle pours syrupy cloudy amber with quickly dissipating tan head. Farmhouse, funk, cherries, nuts, tangerine. Moderately sweet and sour. Lightly bitter. Full body is a bit syrupy and smooth. Very good.

Looks and smells like apple cider. Should be served slightly warm. Taste is slightly tart with a metallic sharpness. Quite drinkable and refreshing but not too interesting.

IPA? I don’t think so. The aroma is definitely funky and this has no head or carbonation. The flavor is bit sour and funky bit just not that good.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a hazy cider brown with no visible carbonation.... A few big whiffs and Im getting earthy, sour cider, twig tea, cherry and a touch of lemon citrus. On the palate the journey continues with flavors of sour cherries, lemongrass, tart fruit, bitter earth and sweet malts really funk up the finish. Pretty great beer to sit and sip.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy orange with a small head. Sweet and fruity aroma with a hint of tartness. Flavor is slightly tart with fruity citrus flavors. Lacks the hop bitterness I associate with IPAs. Very metallic finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2007 version - not an IPA; described as a Rousse de garde. Pours slightly hazed deep dark gold into a snifter. Off-white head with medium retention recedes to nothing. Sour summer fruit aromas. Sweet caramel upfront yields to sour pit and summer fruits before the dry, lasting bitter resin finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2013 Huge vinous flavors with complex fruit, caramel-toffee, sour yeast and earthy subtleties. Again, a bit too much acetic acid, but I like it in this style of funky-fruit driven beer thing. Bottles have a high risk of oxidation, which will ruin the experience.
