3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Murky golden a,ber color, massive white head. Aroma of peat! Not subtle, but not overwhelming either. Taste is vanilla, straw, and not so subtle peat.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy light tan. Weird aroma w lots of peat and lots of brett, and some like, slightly biscuity malts as well. Tart, lots of peat...finishes like mixing Ardbeg and Cuvee Rene Gueuze. Ok this makes no sense, yet it is strangely compelling. It’s a bit of a laugher, but I could finish a glass of that.

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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A hazed amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, strange yet nice mix of peated malt with grassy Brett and lactic notes, faint rubber, interesting. In mouth, a nice sour ale with good peatyness, lactic acid, fruity esters, surprisingly good. On tap at Tørst.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.
