Poured a golden color with hints of amber, thin initial head, and weak lacing. The aroma was wheaty, floral, spicy (ginger?). The flavor was wheaty, dry, spiced with some pepper and light ginger, pretty odd spicing going on, I liked Berts live "dill pickle" descriptor. Mouthfeel was dry and thin, somewhat acidic. A light but not so enjoyable beer. Good thing this was only 3.8%, as Bert had to down more than half of this on his own after I took off. Thanks, Bert!

One of the funnest brew of the tasting. Hazed amber color with a moderate white head. Funky aromas with lavender, spice, cinnamon, and hints of brett. Mildly citric in the flavor, with light lemon grove and wild flowers fields in the background. Equally as complex as pannepot, but the flavors and aroma, to me, where much more enjoyable.

Comes in a 1 liter swing top bottle. Pours a blshing orange-amber with a small white head. Thankfully, this has none of the explosiveness that the Cassissona had! Aroma is unique, to say the least! I smell rose water, rye bread, tart berries, peppery spices, and some Brett-like notes. Taste is soft flowers, mellow rose water, pepper, touch of dill, sweet malts, and light tart fruitiness. Body is light but well carbonated. Ends with more spices, rose water, bread, light tart fruits, and light earthiness.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2007 Pre-GTMW tasting @ 1FastSTi’s place. Hazy pale with off-white head. Light horse, bread and cookie dough aroma. The flavor with lightly tart, lemon and peach. The mouthfeel is light with soft carbonation and slightly thin. 8/4/8/3/14

rerated based on sample from argo0 Much more funky this time around with an improved mouthfeel.

Murkey pinkish orange, lasting fizzy off-white head. Sour orange aroma. Plant/leaf/orange watery taste. Meh. Done. Post-rating note to self: what did I miss? Rerate?

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2006
Hazy pink grapefruit color with saliva like bubbles spreading around the wrung. The aroma is an f’in garden party. Juniper, boysenberry, rose hips, lemon grass and mint tea leaves. Pepper cleaves and kernels round it out with a spicy flair. Pepper comes out more in the flavor along with a souring grapefruit squeeze into an iced rose hip flavored tea. Effervescence mires activity while the tea leaves and lavender breezes interject more earthly traits. Glimpses of limeade are confounded with mixed, tart, tropical squeezes. Ruby red grapefruit taints rise with quips of lavender petals submerged under the surface. Strange stuff, with a peppery turn at the end, but a damn fun beer to try, all thanks to JPDIPSO.

hezron (611) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 13, 2006
Aroma is funky with some barnyard, leather, sweaty locker room, salt and bready caramel with mulling spices and oranges. Cloudy pinkish amber with a thin, white head and some floaties. Flavor starts with sour orange, sweet and grainy caramel and some sweat. Overall the flavor is a bit thin compared to the aroma. Very light body, almost watery texture and nice carbonation. Thanks to JPDIPSO for sharing.

1FastSTi (3344) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 13, 2006
Thanks John. The beer pours to a murky orange body with a frothy white head. The aroma is huge. Violets, roses, sour something, sweat. The flavor is delicate flowers, sweet/sour funk. Pineapple. The palate is tart, nice feeling. This is a great beer.

BBB63 (6426) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 12, 2006
Thanks John for bringing the bottle: Hazy deep amber hue with a small frothy head and okay lacing. The aroma has notes of sour apple, brett-like funk, herbs and flowers, pepper, rye and dusty yeast esters. The taste is moderately sour and woody at first followed by a nice level of bitterness. The finish has a herbal and earthy quality. The mouth feel is dry and smooth and quite enjoyable. I liked it, a nice surprise for sure.

Pre-Great Taste sampling at 1FastSti’s house


Thanks to JPDIPSO for bringing this - it was the start of a nonstop barrage of excellent beers that flowed for the rest of the night. I enjoyed this one. The combination of funkiness and fruitiness made it fun to drink.

Aroma / Appearance - The murky peachy body fizzed up to a height of one-finger at its highest. When it subsided, it left behind the smells of a musty barn, sour peaches and smoked bacon. Hiding in the background was a bit of spiciness waiting to be unleashed.

Flavor / Palate - A strong peachy impression floated through my mouth. The mouthfeel was spicy and hoppy with a background of cherry, caramelized sugar and a base earthiness. The aftertaste was slightly sweet and funky, reminding me most of raspberries. It was very mild - I could drink many of these on a warm day just to cool down.
