3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Three-inch fluffy white head - like a meringue. Murky orange in color, as if a milkshake had been made out of oranges and mud. Overly carbonated. Moderately spiced - pepper, herbs and a whiff of citrus. Bitterness. All the ingredients are there, but they don't come together all that well. Lacks sweetness and the herbs overwhelm.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy brown with a thick fluffy head. Fruity aroma. Some raisin, some prune, and very interesting. Very subtle in alcohol, you don't even know the alcohol is there. Very rich and malty. Very balanced. Very nice brew. Really enjoyed it.

Just came into Ramsey Liquors. Pours hazy brown. Thick fluffy head. Very fruity aroma. Can smell some malt/carmel and a mix of raisin and prune. All uphill from there. Very rich malty flavor and fruity. Reminded me of prune and raisin, but a whole lot more. @ 8%, it drinks like a thirst quenching gatoraid, making your palate crave for more and salavate. You don't even think of it as an alcoholic beverage. Absolutely outstanding.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle conditioned. Amber, good fluffy off white rocky head that quickly drops to a thin covering. Good condition. Slightly yeasty aroma with a niggling suggestion of infection. Worty in the mouth with some fruity apple and a phenolic, aniseed note that starts to feel like a wild yeast infection. Sweet and tangy in the long finish with more yeastiness apparent.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma is slightly fruity with notes of anise and an OK sweetness. The color is an unclear dark amber with a fanstastic lasting head. The flavor though is somewhat boring with notes of spices - is it anise? It has some sweetness but no bitterness - instead it has a woodyness, that lingers on the tongue. The flavor becomes better and better the more You drink. It has a really good palate.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled: Hazy light amber coloured. Quickly deminishing head. Sweet citrusy aroma. Lightly spiced. In some strange way it reminds me of a belgian wit. Not much flavour to descripe. Lightbodied and a bit boring. No hopsbitterness in the end.

Light amber coloured with a small creamy head. Slightly sour aroma and taste. The alcohol is obvious. The hop comes in the end with a light bitter aftertaste.
