3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
6oz draft on Gastropod/Epic closing night. Ugly pour, looks like mud water. Fortunately, no stupid spices. Well, maybe some mild baked crust spices. Lactic tartness cuts through it all. A bit grainy but a nice tart beer with a faint pumpkin pie crust character. Flattish body.

Bottle: The aroma consists of all funk/feet with a touch of salt. It pours a hazy dull gold with a small white head. The flavor starts with citrus and funk...but not as footy as the aroma. The finish has moderate sour lemon with a touch of mineral salt. It’s light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, I have no clue where pumpkin pie plays any role in this.

Bottle thanks to Tectactoe. Aroma is huge brine-y sea water with some light sour lemon and wheat. Tastes slight sweet at first but turns very salty. Don’t get any pumpkin. Just salt, sea water, lemon and lime. Ok.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 Oz waxed and twined bottle pour split. Pours a super cloudy pineapple juice color with a big fizzy head. Actually kinda has a pineapple juice taste to it too. Slightly sour, but not as much as I hoped. Slight wheat flavor, and not getting any pumpkin at all. Enjoyable beer for me. But I can see how it would turn people away. Not bad.

Sampled at the Gastropub. Dark mahogany with no head. Brings me back to childhood with the smell of 5 cent coke bottles (the jelly kind) that you could buy from the corner 7/11 with a bit of tang and some salt. Definitely an odd duck but because of my fond memories I sorta like it.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
22 oz. bottle. Dark muddy water in color, no head. Nose is almost pumpkin and spice with a real strange funk over top everything else. The flavor is salty (really too much salt) bad barley, odd funky dirty dish rage flavor. I really don’t like to insult anybody since I am a real novice home brewer and can’t claim to have much skill but….. I have had much better home brews. Sorry this is a drain pour.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Totally dark caramel beer. smells spicy and oaky.notes of spice but nothing crazy.Very sweet. I do get that lacto tartness and saltiness is totally there but there’s something else about this that just doesn’t taste right. Too salty, too spicy and too much resinous acidity. Sorry to the brewery which I’m sure he’ll see this review. It just is not a very good beer.
Purchased at Bottleworks in Seattle.

Pours dark hazy mahogany no head.
Smell mild amber flavors.
Taste super salty. Bit of lactic funk and bit of pumpkin spices, but for the most part, just salt.
Hard to drink a full size of this, but a three oz pour is ok.
