1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Looks like a murky brown, with a very small head. Aroma is full of vinegar with some sweet. Taste is assailing, like vinegar and sugar, and somewhere in there beer. In fact, repeated tastings are a struggle to overcome the vinegar taste impact and get at some real flavor. Finish is extremely dry.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
330 ml bottle brought all the way across the Atlantic and the North American continent by Theydon Bois, who thought it fit to share it with his roommates for RBWG week. Thanks a fucken ton, Cloin. This one pours a hazy gold with a small white head. Cough drops, brother. Candy-like, weak, unhelpful cough drops. Sugars, oak, and earth. Light-medium bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a sweet, oxidized, somewhat tart mouthfeel. This is gross and weird.

Medium sweet flavor with rich bready mad, sugary cities, dough. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sugary finish, more damp bread, ripe citrus, lemon. Pretty mediocre.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
At Maakun’s. Pours a straw golden cup of joy. Smells of dried apricots sugar and dusty cardboard. Tastes mostly the same with the addition of a weird boozy sherrylike touch. 1 up for the master blend. Funky funky stuff, for the freaks.

375ml bottle. Pours a clear, golden orange with a small, fully diminishing, off-white head. Sweet aroma of apricots, oak and a hint of wheat. Sticky, sweet flavour of apricots, sugar, oak and straw with a slightly dry, sour finish. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Not great.
