2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle #46 pours with a dark murky amber body supporting a tall billowing tan head foam ball. The aroma is earthy, tart and rubbery band-aid. The taste has some tartness as well as a soured to spoiled mango that’s lightly covered with molasses. Hmm. Not sure what to make of this. It isn’t working for me at all.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle share in Asheville. Extremely soupy, so ugly in the glass. Nose of cheap nail varnish. Weird rotting fruit esters. Bottled fart. The taste is similarly nasty. Old mandarins, rotting vegetables. Bizarre chemical notes. Very strange indeed. Not good.

750 ml bottle from John’s Grocery- thanks, Andy! Batch 7, bottle 29, as if it matters. Pours a hazy dully amber-gold with a small off-white head. Notes of cardboard, honey, vegetables, earth, wood, lemon, and sourdough. Light-medium bodied, with a tart, vegetal mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Like all of their beers, this one sucks and is characterized by weird vegetal notes and muddled dumpster juice. Ugh. Just quit.

Bottle - I get the tomato and a little spice. I have never seen a beer look so bad, brown cloudy with yellow bits? Tomato and some sour weird notes, soapy but drinkable.
