3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is pale malt, herbal, touches of pepper, funk, and grassy. This also comes off as being a bit dusty. The flavor is bready malt, grass, mild fruits, light funk with some pepper toward the back. This changes a bit and becomes more dry and bitter as it warms. This just didn’t work for me like some of their other beers.

Keg at Brewdog Camden. Hazy pale blond with white bubbly head. Aroma is bubblegum, sour brett yeast, lots of fruit, peach, banana, raspberry. Very nice. Taste equally good. Great cross between a saison and an Orval. Can’t get much better than that for me. Very spritzy and drinkable. Lots of fruit, bit of citrus and a touch of wheat. Nice crisp finish with a touch of bitterness. Really really nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell on 01/20/2012. The beer is a cloudy orange-gold color with a medium frothy white head that burns away slowly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of peppery yeast, bready malt and hay. Medium body with a moderately funky character and notes of grain, yeast, malt and pepper. The finish is peppery yeast at first but resolves to a lingering sweet malt aftertaste. Above average overall.

Balanced, fresh and quite good. 06.01.2012
