2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle toss via some trade extra. Thanks, bro! Pours a very turbid brown, like an aborted first batch of homebrew. Over carbonated. Flat Abbey could learn a lesson here. Aromas of spices, some dirt, perhaps a touch of week old dried lawn clippings. Taste is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Flavors of plant roots covered in dirt, failed settlers that got blown away during the dust bowl, unwashed pugs. Has a very light tartness. This may be an off batch or maybe fantome just sucks. Scroll past this tripe.

Bottle - Caramel, citrus and some herbal notes. Cloudy orange with a nice off white head. Caramel, light funky tartness and some herbs with a bitterness in the finish. Not a fan of this one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml (btw green glass) bottle. Hazy, reddish amber colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Spicy, yeasty and citrusy fruity aroma, peppery notes, red pepper, orange zest, a herbal touch of dandelion, bitter hoppy overtones, quite penetrative overall. Taste is herbal, spicy, dandelion, pepper, caramel malty background, an alcoholic touch; very dry finish. Far from flattering, rather inaccessible, esoteric.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Willrunforbeer’s crazy afternoon cellar clean out continues! This bottle has about 15 months of age, roughly. Dark amber color with huge carbonation level that gives head. Aroma is earthy with birch root, toasted grain and some dried leaves.
This brewers beers just don’t age well at all. The brew in my glass is nothing like the brewers description. Not sure if there wasn’t another labeling error (as I have had with this brewery back in 2013) The flavor is more of a Autumn seasonal beer from a lower end American brewery. Dried leaves, caramel sweetness that turns to lingering earthy bitterness. Thin body with ample carbonation giving some pop on the tongue. I guess if this was labeled as Autumn seasonal brew maybe the score would be slightly better but we still don’t know what the hell this should be.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
750mL from my cellar. Picked up at Hunger Mountain over a year ago. Pours deep ruby red with an off white head. The commercial description says it’s "golden"... What’s going on here? Aroma is dry strawberry, earth. Flavor is very dry red fruits, mild moss, grassy bitterness. I’m not sure what this is, but it’s not very good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml. bottle from Perry’s. This one has been sitting in their fridge for a loooong time and I’ve been eyeballing for just as long. It finally went on sale, so I decided to take the plunge... It pours a clear orange color with a disappearing, fizzy white head. The aroma is interesting with fresh breeze, stone fruit and nectarine. Lightly earthy/spicy yeast. The flavor is tart with more nectarine, light earthy spice and a medium salty/tart finish. Fruity, salty, tart with a reasonably light body and complex finish. Nice stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Pat, thanks man! Appearance is a dark golden with nice white head. Aroma is flowers, lemon lime, and grass. Taste is lemon grass, white grapes, oak and a touch of bitterness and a dry finish. Medium mouthfeel, nice carbonation. Very refreshing, not sure I get the dandelions nor would I really be able tell if they were there but this is a winner either way.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Birra ambrato carico, schiuma bianca croccante che non dura molto. Odore acido di sudore e di.legno, caramello, erba. In bocca c’è il caramello, la base maltata si sente e si avvertono anche i sentori acidi e di legno. Tante spezie e finale erbaceo. Birra che si lascia bere.
