Bottle @ tasting. Hazy caramel with big head lacing. Really does angel like band aid- and a little smoked. I can see why they say peat. Don’t really like it in the flavor, though I like the a smell. Barbecued band aid.

Bottle shared by jackl at my 10K tasting. Hazy yellow, thin foamy white head, good retention. Aroma of strong meaty smoke, brett, funk. The taste is tart fruits, smoke, mesquite, papery notes. Thin bodied, no hint of booze, interesting. Odd beer, strangely intriguing.

Tasted during Nepenthia. Hazy orange c odor. Ring of white head. Big smoke, peat. Nice bright bretty citrusy aroma. It works well. Great big complex flavor, nice to sip on. Medium to bigger body. Lighter, kind of soft carbonation. Lightly slick bod, then more dry in the finish. Nice mild tart, light to moderate bitter. Lighter sweet. Very tasty, interesting stuff.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Smells of sheep shit, so I guess at least the peat is good. Harsh sour aspects too. Hazy and pale. Fucking sharp vinegary palate. This is just pure battery acid. Brett should introduce a funkiness, never vinegar, these guys are doing it wrong. The rest of the ingredients I like, but the light grains are completely killed by the acid.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Neat squat bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid straw colored, looking like pulpy orange juice,with white head. Nose is huge peat, yeast, funk, oak. Smells like a scotch and funky ale hybrid. Tastes tart, fruity, with heavy notes of peat, tangerine, grapefruit, smoked malt. It all comes together nicely.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Tallinn Craft Beer Weekend 2015. Now that’s a crazy brew. On the nose it’s fatty smoked bacon and dry cider... mixed. Very sour, with a lingering bacon smokiness, cidery fruitiness, extreme tartness, almost burning in the finish (which is thankfully abrupt), leaving a nice smoky bitter feeling in the throat. Body plus medium, texture sticky, carbonation plus average. Being so different from all other beers at the festival I found it to be an absolute stunner, an incredibly complex and strange thing... I loved it.
