1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle sampled at Clockwork’s 4k/5k/10k tasting. Pours a murky body with no lacing or head. Aroma is dusty funk and really nothing else. Mouthfeel is medium with weird heat, faint acidity - neither of which really balance each other. Doesn’t work.

(Critique chaotique du extreme beer fest 2013): Peu d’effervescence, fruits exotiques, plus sucré qu’acidulé. Intéressant.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at James’ place for a tasting. Pours a hazy amber with a good amount of floaty swirly little bits. A good amount of acetone, similar to the blood orange. Behind all of the acetone there’s a touch of fruit and funk, but the acetone overpowers everything. Medium bodied, soft fruit, loads of acetone, tangy with a bit of caramel. Lingering acid, more acetone.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle from Mike (who didn’t know how bad this beer was and apologized numerous times.) Thanks for the gesture though! Pours a clear golden with big head. Once the cap was taken off this thing started to semi-gush out with just bubbles. No lack of carbonation. Aroma is a harsh cheese funk with loads of Acetone and some vanilla. Taste is more acetone and vinegar with some cinnamon and sweet fruit near the tail end of the taste. Just not good and off to say the least. Couldn’t finish a glass. What a mess.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at James’ place. Pours hazy gold with a white head. A little bit of nail polish remover, but not as offensive as the Blood Orange version, with some light berry sweetness and tartness. Not bad.
