1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
355ml Bottle consumed in a garden close to Newport Beach, California on 13th March 2014. Oh dear what was I given? Sweet and nasty blend of all things un-beery, a concoction of ingredients no brewer should even dream of adding to a noble beer (this did not start out as a noble beer though did it?). This as far removed from a ’Farmhouse’ brew as you can get if you ask me. A one off for me, Good bye Blue Moon.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours to a simple filtered copper body with a thin off-tan head. The aroma is dry dusty grains with a subtle coriander and floral hop. The flavor has a deep toasty biscuit malt and noble hop combination with lots of yeast and a dash of white pepper. Moderate body has a lingering toasted malt. Dry. Very drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours clear copper red, with generous head. Head fades quickly with little lacing. Light spicy malt aroma. Light body going down. Tart taste that is somewhat lasting.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Yay party beer - 12oz bottle into transparent contempt. Nose is slightly spicy malt grain as generic as that sounds. Sips adds wheat and a muddled mess. Autumnal to says the least. Meh.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This was shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Pours a clear copper color with a small beige head. Very little lacing. Nose is somehow like gym socks that needed be washed two weeks ago. Medium in body.
Flavor is must better than the aroma I get fruit, chocolate, and some spice. Coriander I think. But while there are lots of flavors they are kings of a mishmash. Overall a dismal failure.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle - Pours red-orange and clear with a small, lingering, off-white head. It smells of caramel malt and berries. This light bodied brew is sweet with a spicy character that’s a bit interesting. Pretty good.

Nice and not so rye alike. fine pouring in glass and a little bit thin. Enjoyable and fine to drink.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Undated 12 oz bottle served in a pint glass.
Pours dark red-amber; clear with a fairly durable head.
Aroma is neutral rather than appealing, but then I am not a fan of most farmhouse ales.
Taste: an appealing fruity flavor with a sweet/tart balance leaning towards the tart side. Hints of strawberries. Tame and mild for style.
Medium body and medium-high carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Mild currant nose and even milder spice. Clear copper, medium yellowish head. Vinous currant flavor. Nicely balanced. Fizzy and medium body. Pleasantly surprising, not mind boggling, but good. I misread the label and was expecting some sort of bad strawberry beer.
