0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Oh boy, more torture. Ugh.
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a snifter and a tulip.
The appearance was a hazy burnt orange to somewhat off color brown. One finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute.
The smell had some burnt off barnyard funky soured oranges.
The taste was basically the same.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with not much sessionability to me as it’s just too damn leathery and tart and sour.
Overall, I’m hoping my abuse from this brewery is in sight but it’s not.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Unclear brown and highly effervescent producing a large frothy light brown/beige head. Light oud bruin at first with some wooden notes, barnyard, very light glue then more of a dry stout kind of finish with some cocoa and earthy hops. Also spices that I am too lazy and stupid to decipher, could be cloves and coriander. Pretty dry finish, light bitterness. Soft on the palate with gentle carbonation. Acid reflux after the last sip, wonderful. I’ll probably wet my bed too, I’m scared of ghosts.

Delightfully strange brew. Pours a huge head, barn and funk dominate the aroma, which is as funky as it gets. Extremely dry finish. Another winner for me from Fantome

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - 750ml. Opaque caramel body with a good off-white foamy head. Sharp hoppy aroma with citrusy, spicy, and flowery hints. Its strong hoppy taste carries grainy, herbal, and pepperish notes. Ends with a long, sharp, dry sour finish. A bit weird, but not bad.
