Bottle shared by ratman. Pours hazy orange with an average, frothy, off-white head, somewhat lasting with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, meal), average hops (perfume, grass), heavy yeast (barnyard, earth) with notes of plum, apple, pear, and ginger. Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, moderate sweetness, light acidity and bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle from the MJRBC. Pours copper with a nice lasting white head. Smells of perfume, dry malt, some bananas, light spice, touches of dough. Tastes dry with some fruity undertones. The flavor profile is initially dominated by a sweet sugary presence that thankfully subsides as the beer warms. Some nice floral notes emerge as does some grassy elements. I’d like some more crisp pilsner malt presence in this one, but overall, not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml. Dark, hazy golden body. Big, lasting white head. Sweet, fruity aroma with a hint of coriander, grain and caramel. Floral notes below everything else. The nose is somewhat subdued. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. The finish is moderately sweet and moderately bitter/tart and dry. Medium body that starts watery in texture but turns slightly sticky in the finish. Moderate carbonation. Peppery alcohol lingers. OK, but watery, sweet and too muted in the aroma to be memorable.
