4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy orange sienna color with a couple rising bubbles. The nose is awkward yet inviting, red clay, marzipan, apricot, apple cider. The palate follows the nose with strange yet tasty complexity. Really a unique beer that is pretty damn tasty. Lots of full round nuttiness, tart autumn fruit notes of bosc pear, gala apple, earth musk... thoroughly enjoyed this. Low carbonation if any but seems to work well with the flavors and mouthfeel on this one !

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy amber body, small white head. Aroma is lightly tart with apricot, lemon, white wine, honey and licorice. Taste is sweet malty with honey and citric fruits, christmas spices and grass. A really interesting taste, and it seems very different from how I remember Baladins version. Slightly sour finish with a balancing sweet malt taste. While it’s a good beer there’s really no problem sharing it between two.

Hazy dark orange. Flat no head. Little bits of yeast floating around. Sour nose. No carbonation. Has a fruity sour taste with some sugared candy in the back. Sweet and sour finish, weird. Not what I expected.

[10/16/13] Bottle at Luppolo12 in Rome. Hazy orange-amber. Sourish fruity aroma with some vinegar and honey notes. Sour flavor with some funk. Vinegar, light sweetness, honey notes, a bit of pomegranate, lemony notes and an acidic burn in the throat. Medium-bodied. A bit strange but decent. Alcohol is well-hidden.

Hazy gold beer, very hazy. Small white head. Palate is crisp and dry. Pretty sour with apricot and lemon flavours. An odd counter balance of lactose underneath. Finishes crisp and slightly acidic. Floral and herby notes emerging. Unusual but drinkable.
