3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at EBF. Pours a light golen body with a a creamy head. Aroma is sweet malt, citrus, banana, and belgian yeast. Flavor is that with little etoh expression.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Cambridge Brewing. Pours in a wine glass- hazy almost dull yellow/orange with a thinning head- dissipates to nothing. Aroma is very fruity and funky- tons of brett, pedio and lacto- fruity, tropical notes, pineapple, leather and light apple hints with barnyard light horse manure, and good clean white wine and woody tones. Flavor is earthy, fruity more pineapple, and funky white wine, spicy, earthy, light crackery malts, cobwebs, musty, leather, earth and funk with some spice. Mostly clean and not over the top funked out- just really well balanced at this point- I feel like this beer wasn’t even as close to the funk level it is now when I first had this over a year ago.

Reddish orange. No head aroma is faint but I get a little plastic. Grapes, nuts, lemon? Fig and peaches. Fleeting finish with some caramel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Extreme Beer Fest 2/15/08: A robust golden/blonde ale, more like a tripel. Taste of Belgian yeast, banana, wheat, apple, sweetness. Very light, you couldn’t tell this was a 9.4% abv. A good brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewery. Cloudy amber pour with a white head. Light citrus aromas. Moldy sour peach and nectarine notes with malty undercurrents. Tangy, but not overly tart. Interesting. This batch has an ABV of 7.8%. Average body and mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at CBC. Aroma of big fruity apricot and green grapes. Reminiscent of barrel aged upright beers. Sweaty over ripened pear Brett. Tasty. Fun to drink. Menu says 7.8% abv.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is overripe fruits, some cheesy funk and candy apple. Taste is up front very fruity but finish is very sweet and sticky and hard to drink.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Night of the Funk. Pours a pale gold. Aroma has notes of paprika, seaweed, clove and acetone, with a gentle tartness. Soup up front in the mouth with an ugly, buttery, oily finish. Looks like 136.10 Hz didn’t do the trick (gimme a break with that, btw. Waste of time. If that’s what you feel you need to do to create a superior beer experience then you are doing it all wrong. I’m all for experimentation in brewing, but this pseudo-science BS should be saved for Tom Cruise and the church of Scientology).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at Night of the Funk 2009: Slightly hazy golden with a thick dense white head. Tannic buttery Chardonnay aroma- mild odd phenols are there as well giving off a plasticy note over a green raisin fruity undertone. Creamy body- warming. Some mild vanilla flavor mesh with a buttery white wine vinousness and sweet oak. There’s an herbal note on the back. This is quite interesting, but I can’t say I liked it through and through. (Perhaps it’s because I’m sensitive to the diacetyl of the California Chardonnays).

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet and syrumpy nose...winey too! Golden and white head. The wine flavors are a bit too pronounced but nice.
