3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Kiss The Kitchen Floor or better known as ZZT VI (2013): kindly shared by DutchDrebus:
Medium sized white head which changes quick into a lacing on top of a hazy yellow colored beer.
Aromas of hops, citrus, honey, soap, apples and a hint of peach.
Flavours of tea, herbs, hops, soap, apples, hint of something light smokey, light bitter and some malts.
Aftertaste is malts with apples, light bitter and light floral.
Low to medium carbo, soft light dry mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture.
Itís nice hoppy, itís ok, but not more than that.

1.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
serious gusher - foam is still oozing out of the bottle 20 minutes after i poured the first glass.
hazy gold with a big foamy white head. body is medium, which is very unusual for a beer with this level of wild yeast presence, as somehow some of the long-chain sugars must have survived. carbonation is obviously quite high.
aroma: orval yeast character (slightly sour with some mild brett notes), some dry grassy notes from probable wild yeast, sweet rich pale malts, a sharp saison-like citrus note, and tropical hop character.
taste: pleasant malty sweetness is buried by rather unpleasant wild yeast and brett character (rubber, bandaid, dank moldy basement, gym socks). the hops come through pretty clear with what seems would be a nice clean bitterness and citrusy tropical notes if not overshadowed by funk.
iím not going to finish more than a couple ounces of this, which sucks because itís a big bottle and wasnít cheap, and i brought this home from a recent trip up north and was really looking forward to enjoying it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2013 Pour out of 750 mL bottle, hazy orange pour with nice fluffy white head, lots of carbonation but pretty fine, aroma brought notes of nice hops, with notes of orange, peach, pear, hints of pineapple, touch of grapefruit, nice lemon notes as well, hints of white grape, as well from the yeast, slight yeasty notes as well with a touch of cardamom, hints of biscuit. Taste is a mix of sweet peach, pear, white grape, nice orange, grapefruit and lemon notes mix into some grass, biscuit and yeasty notes, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter, dry. Nicely brewed beer.
