3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber with full creamy off-white head. Looks great. Taste is lots of malt, caramel, some apple, citrus, pine, cinnamon, light herbal notes. Sweet and some tartness with light bitter finish. Medium bodied with nice full feel and carbonation.At first I thought it was a bit bland, but halfway I really warmed to this beer. Pretty decent stuff.

Tap @ brewpub. Pours a burnished copper with a large, off-white, frothy, large-bubbled head. Aroma is some fruitiness, apple, light apricot, light stone-fruit, yeast. Taste is a lot of stone-fruit, strong floweriness, caramel. Somewhat sweet, a bit of an off-taste. Maybe a bit contaminated? Fairly full with strong carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
(Butcher’s Tears Tresspassr) On tap at Burg Bieren Festival, 200 ml.
Dark reddish colour on the body, slightly hazy, small and thin off-white head with low retention, leaving light lacing behind.
On the aroma there is light manure, caramel, faint grains.
Taste of caramel, light floral notes. Satisfying bitterness on the aftertaste.
Medium thin body, good carbonation, mildly dry on the palate.
Quite nice beer, I would have come back for another, highly drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the Bierkoning. Muddy brown pour wit thick straw foam. Aroma is hoppy, really malty, very very peppery, lots of black pepper, some saison like notes, vegetal aromas. I really wasn’t sure what to think at first, and was rather unimpressed but as I got into it, I really enjoyed the amber saison like notes, the intense grassy and peppery hops, and rich maltiness yet still a decent dry finish. Always original, and definitely always outside style guidelines, but this was one of the good ones.
