3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Garrett Oliver beer dinner in Hillerød. Slightly cloudy golden beer with a lasting white head. Aroma has a rather strong bourbon and oak character, of the coconut kind. Spicy and fruity base beer aroma, and a little funk too. Dry fruity beer with an overwhelming bourbon character. I would love to have it again when the bourbon has mellowed and the brett has taken more charge.

Bottle… Second Annual Treasure Coast Beer Fest... Pours hazy and golden with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma is of vanilla, butter and pear. Full-bodied and silky with moderate carbonation. The flavor leans on the sweet side of balance with big notations of toffee and butterscotch; lesser notations of vanilla, oak and whiskey. The finish is sweet, and then tangy, and then dry.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A little pre-lunch taste at HopCat before going on a cellar tour. Hazy golden pour with a thick white head. The nose is softly spicy with a kiss of light bretty minerality. A touch of honey and light lemon peel as well. Soft hoppiness with a little bit of brett character. It still has the honeyish palate of the regular local 1 coming through. Soft and chewy with a lightly lingering herbal character. A bit of soft yeasty spice on the finish. It’s pretty tasty, but the "wildness" is pretty subdued. A little bit of light tartness on the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a big bottle at the meeting with Garrett Oliver at Slotskroen in Hillerød. Filmy, white head on top of a hazy, golden body. Dry fruity aroma with pears and a solid touch of bourbon. Very bourbon in the flavour developing into notes of late acid fruits and some hints of cheese. Unusual and interesting, but a bit too sweet (14.05.2009).

Pouring at the Night of the Funk event in Boston. Pours a hazy yellow with a thin white head. Caramel, smoke and cotton candy. Light bodied. Nothing overly remarkable or memorable, but no glaring flaws either.
