4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
P: A shiny copper orange with a vivacious tornado spinning in the middle of the glass. Topped with a creamy layer of French vanilla colored head that hangs out for a while. Delicate clingy lacing cascaded along the edges.
S: Green tea tannins, lemongrass, slight skunk aroma, peppery spice, Belgian yeast and burnt sugar. Phenolic presence with subtle bubble gum, cherry syrup and fruit rollups.
T/M: Herbal infused light fruit cup syrup. Spiced rum soaked apples, flower petals, fresh grass, lime, yellow pear and hard cherry candy. A sugar dosed saison similarity. Moderate body that finishes dry and somewhat chalky. Lingering spiced alcohol.
O: An interesting brew for sure. Complex and well blended. I have to say the tornado effect was the coolest thing I have ever since pouring a beer. I love the chance to try ancient interpretations of past beers. This was a real treat. Proost!!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to Rogueone for sharing a bottle (as Posca Rustica). This beer pours a clear pale golden color with a medium thick foamy white head that recedes gradually. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, yeast and grain. Medium-bodied with flavors of grainy malt, earthy yeast and citrus. The finish is floral and earthy with a fruity yeast aftertaste. Above average overall.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, under the label Posca Rustica, shared with Grippitis, Parksy, and a few others. Golden body, average white head. Sweet grainy aroma, some yeast, tinned pineapple. The palate is much the same-- grainy, perhaps even a touch corny, sweet pineapple juice. No "herbs and spices" as advertised, just quite a dull, simplistic golden ale. Not impressed.
