3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2008 MGB Winter Fest: Muddled brown hue with reddish and golden highlights, small frothy head and minimal lace. The aroma has notes of caramel covered cherry, light handed funk, oak, vanilla bean, and some herbal esters. The taste is fruity and woody with sweet grains as a base. A hint of whiskey and spice upon the finish. A layer of funk, yeast and sourness throughout the flavor profile. The mouth feel is sharp and aggressive with a tannic dry finish. A neato brew but more a Flemish Sour Ale than a Berliner Weisse for sure. Worth the wait till 3 PM for the un-tapping.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This poured a murky dark golden color with a white head. Aroma was of acetone, cheese, and thatís about it. Flavor was similar, caramel, tongue biting battery acid. Bad.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle shared by beerman6686. Funny name and label. Looks like it took a turn for the worse. Pours a cloudy orangey brown color. Not much of a head. Aroma of nail polish. Super potent. Donít want to drink it. Taste is quite sour but has a chemical like taste and has a maple/spice aftertaste. Pretty terrible stuff.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle @ the rake dungeon. I think I have womencantsail to thank for this whale. Pours a hazy dull, dark orange appearance with little head. The aroma has a lot of acetic acid, chemicals / acetone, and a dull fruitiness. There is a lemony element to the flavor that is the one redeeming factor. Some cherry-like fruitiness. Lots of nail polish remover in the flavor. Highly acidic finish. Not good.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
A bottle in cellar for a couple years from this dreadful series, but Iím hopeful. Murky red-amber with no head, no lacing / Sour, acetone nose of orchard fruit and oak / Nope, as bad as the rest . . . . Just awful. Canít account for the difference between this bottle and the much better reviews. Generally, this line of sours from Dark Horse have been universally panned, and this is as bad as most.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours dark orange amber with white head. Nose/taste of whiskey barrel, chocolate, soured dark and citrus fruits and candy sugar. A bit thick on the palate. Whiskey adds an odd dimension.

This one had a lot going on and I enjoyed all of it. I tasted fruit, oak, whiskey, belgian spice, vanilla and sugar.
A very well blended brew. Iím really loving Belgians.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample from bottle. Pours a hazy amber brown with a medium off white head. The nose is tart and acidic to open, boozy whiskey with some white grape showing up as well. The flavor is also tart and acidic with grapes and whiskey throughout. This comes off more as a sour, not simply a Belgian strong. Either way I found it to be an interesting brew.

Carlos kicks ass. This bottle was shared at verities 9 release. Spicy and sharp. Lots of strong going on. Pucker puller and sweet lingering. Awesome.
