3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy golden beer with a white head. Flowery aroma with notes of elderflower, citrus, apples, white grapes and a whiff of barnyard. Surprisingly soft in the mouth, with grassy notes and a nice medium bitter, slightly tart and very dry finish. Despite the level of the ABV, very much a delicious thirstquencher.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly hazy yellow pour with a small head. Aroma is very nice: fruity esters, saison yeast, banana, over ripe tangerine, ripe pineapple, red apples, tart white grapes, grassy hops - beneath all this, there is a low key brettanomyces aroma, which is really tight and provides some rotten-ish funkiness. Spicy notes of choriander and perhaps nutmeg. The taste is lovely - lots of yeast notes at first with, oranges, doughy, baking yeast, but also notes of lemon juice, apples, cantaloupe. Despite the fact that there is a fair deal of sweetness to the body, the beer has a dry finish. The brettanomyces plays its part at the end of the sip with the dryness, and a funky side notes in the finish. I know I wouldnít have guessed it if I didnít know, but now that I know itís JP brett, I can find some yeast-wise similatities between this and, say, Bam Biere. This beer is lovely.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle. Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a cloudy gold color with about an inch and a half frothy white head that stayed around for a long time. Thereís also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like hay, bready malt, peppery spice, lemon peel, and some green apples. It tastes like bready malt, lemon peel, bubblegum, peppery spice and some fruit and herbs. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit slick and has moderate/high (but soft) carbonation which helps make this easy to drink. I think this is a solid overall brew, but itís not my favorite of the Evil Twin beers Iíve tried. With that being said, I do think itís worth trying.
