3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (750ml) Cellared for 8 months. Poured golden orange with a medium sized, rocky, off-white head which was average lasting. A very strong yeasty aroma with barnyard notes, ripe pears, lemon zest, cinnamon, coriander and light notes of clove + banana. Flavor was mainly of wild yeast with a mild bitterness, over ripe apples, tangy lemon, cinnamon, pepper, coriander, hints of banana and some strange herb/weed notes which I couldn’t quite put my finger on. Medium bodied with lively carbonation, a dry mouthfeel and a good length finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2015 75cl in teku. Pours a huge, white, frothy and rocky head; light orange to golden colour, cloudy. Smells spicy, yeasty, floral, leaves, sort of "vegetation in spirng", fresh and bit tripel like. Tastes wheat and grainy, malty, fruity/lemon, spicy again, belgian sugary; I would say both medium level sweetness and bitterness, both very smooth and very well blended, very light tartness. Medium+ bodied and creamy; dry finish, with spices and some light hoppiness. A very solid and well made brew, characterized by spices, wheat and obviously the typical yeast. Great balance and drinkability

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Perfectly clear light straw hue with a thin, one finger tab of pale white that fizzles away after a few seconds. Pear in the nose, very sweet. Juniper, earthy notes and a hint of biscuits as well. Sweet in flavor. Soil, a little floral sweetness, orange blossom, lavender. A hint of bitterness hits at the swallow. More like a tripel in flavor -- this has a bit more sweetness than your average gruit. Medium body with a soft fizzle of CO2. Delicious but a little sweet. Probably not a traditional gruit, but still mighty tasty.
