3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pouring a hazy straw color with a fizzy white head, this has an earthy, barnyard aroma with hints of lemon-lime and spices. Soft mouthfeel, but dry and acidic as well. It’s got a sweet/tart taste to it, light toffee-like maltiness, citric but musty. Refreshing citric tart finish.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Earthy, musty, peppery, citrus-lemon and a candy-like sweetness in the nose with some hay-like, herbal hop notes. Hazy yellow-gold coloured body is topped by pillowy white head that recedes to generous and lasting cover with some lacing. Musty yet sweet flavour with a light spiciness, a woody character and a hint of barnyard in the dry and tart finish. Sweetness returns in the long-lasting aftertaste. Very malty but very well-attenuated with fair carbonation and medium body. I can’t help but think this must be under-rated as I am loving it! Bottle (Winooski Beverage Warehouse Nov. 2004 - Bottled on 15-Sep-2004).

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
tulip / 06.01.05 L4006 13:05 (i don’t know what it truly means, but it looked important) / a nice loud pop is heard when i release the cork, then a wisp of fog quickly rises and disappears. i do smell it, though: primarily a spiced aroma; but with hay, a little bit of mustiness. the pour is very nice. a huge white head nears full diminishment, but it takes awhile... leaving sparkly lace, soapy froth, and it’s quite loud, which is another thing about this beer, the body is quite active yet the palate is not obnoxious. it’s just live enough. it’s actually quite cremey. this is a modest beer with just enough sweetness and spice--a little bit of caramel, lemon, with a dimension of barn like in a saison. very enjoyable! and my FIRST biere de garde!
