3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
2012-09-18. Hazy orange amber body, small beige head. 3+ Modest aroma has an odd quality to it, almost a smokey fennel-rye like character, but that is not quite it. 6+ Flavour is strange, pleasant fruity undertones, the malt has an odd earthy almost smokey or astringent quality to it? Modest bitterness is pleasant. Gains a bit of fruit quality as it warms up. 6+ Average plus palate is modestly carbonated. 3+ It is not bad per se but sort of strange and not to my taste.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[4788-20120918] Tap. Tangerine and lychee mixed with pineapple fruit soap hops aroma has a touch of pepper. Slightly hazy, orange brown body with a quick foamy white head. Blood orange peel and rotting grapefruit hops flavour. Medium body is bordering on bitter. Interesting, though unexpected at first. (5/3/5-/3/12) 2.8
(TBW Tap Takeover @ Volo, Toronto, ON)
Overheard: "It’s like if lychee and pineapple had a baby together." "That sounds like a delicious baby."

Draught, Black Oak Tap Takeover at Volo. Sep. 18. Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange with a small diminishing frothy white head. Aroma of jalapeno skin, wheat, grain a nd a bit of fruit. Flavour again of, oddly, jalapeno skin, wheat, fruit and an average bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Just O.K.
