2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cloudy rust coloured, huge head of foam despite being pulled from the fridge and poured carefully.
Bitter hops and sourness in the smell.
Very bitter starting off, moves to the sour side, actually goes back and forth during the session, with some funky notes thrown in
Champagne like carbonation doesn’t help.
I don’t see any dating of any sorts on the bottle.
Weird drinking experience.

500 ml bottle from Beermongers. Pours a somewhat cloudy orange color with a large white head. lots of slow gushing on this one so be careful. The aroma is barnyard straw and fruit. A big soft bretty flavor, berries, light sugary malts. Very funky. An interesting brett sweeter IPAish beer. Good.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Caramel infused fruitcake aroma. Swampy tan appearance. Mixes the usual caramel sweetness with a tart rock candy flavor. Also moderately bitter for this style. Too light on the body. Not the best example of a strong, casked bitter.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Serving: Bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a dark amber color with a small light tan head. The nose has notes of spiced cake, light caramel, and dried fruit. The flavor mirrors the nose with lighter fruity notes and a touch of tartness that I can’t quite place. Medium bodied with a dry finish. Interesting.
