Barcade, Brooklyn tap ($7): Pours clear copper with a small head... whatever there was dissipated quickly. Aroma is Dr. Pepper, herbs, sugar, early 1900s patent medicine, and pomegranate. Taste is somewhat sweet. It is kind of a hodgepodge of everything mentioned above. My girlfriend found that Dr. Pepper was one of the main things going on. Complex, but weirdly balanced. I didn’t get any pepper or nuts in this.

Draft. Pours almost clear medium copper brown with a very very thin head. Tastes like pine, flowers, grassy, roasted. Very complex and strange. Medium body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like herbs, malty, musky, rotten.

There is a flavor in this beer that is both awesome and totally foreign to me. Maybe it’s the "tree resin (think Myrrh) "

Pours a lovely clear bronze with a thick but very effervescent light tan head. Sorry, point off there. Aroma has malty, hay, grape juice and subtle yeast notes. Flavor seems a little different with each sip - malty, yeasty, wheaty, hints of caramel and horehound. Texture, though, leaves something to be desired - smooth, but lacking fizz or thickness. An interesting beer, nonetheless. Let it "bronze" your palate.

Bottle. Pours with a clear copper hued body and a medium sized off-white head that fades pretty rapidly. Aromas are quite herbal and a bit spicy, floral, honey, thistle, grassy, medium malt, tree sap, walnut bread. Low esters. Flavors are spicy, off dry and pretty tannic to be honest. Light isoamyl acetate, floral and fruity, mildly nutty. Dry finish, light pomegranate. Lively carbonation.

Sour pomegranate and honey are the dominant flavors here, a little nuttiness is definitely there as well. Certainly interesting. Too fizzy for my taste.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Floral malt aroma; amber color with frothy off-white head; sweet raspberry taste; sharp fizz on the palate with a bitter finish; overall, a fruity beer that is interesting for it's representation of an Etruscan beer, but only stands up on it's own if you're looking for a fruity beer

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2014 Bottle: thanks, Matt! Deep copper with shades of amber & ruby-red. Foamy, white head lasts for a few minutes then retains well as a collar outlining the glass. Aroma is... unique & interesting. Fruity, somewhat tart berries, wheat, grains, crispy & musky hops, ginger, coriander, pepper, & a collage of other spices I can’t identify at all. Taste contains honey-coated cherries, strawberry, pomegranate, raspberry... sounds great, but there is a HUGE medicinal twang that’s killing the vibe. Weird, residual, chalky taste & feel on the palate, think of the aftertaste of chewing a vitamin. Ashy, musty, dry hops. Big wheat. Not getting any hazelnut. What a damn weird beer... Wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t for those horrid, medicinal off-flavors. Hard to finish this one.

The aroma is earthy, yeasty, pepper, nuts. The appearance is clear amber, white head. The flavor is pepper, yeast, nuts, honey. Spicy and sweet. The finish is pepper, spicy. Medium in body. God overall. Why is thee Belgian yeast in a traditional ale?
