3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
750mL thanks to Travlr. Pours a very ugly muddy brown with thicker tan head. Nice retention but ugly color. Nose is spicy with odd umami seaweed and celery salt. Weird nose. Taste is odd. Mildly metallic and bitter with lots of pumpernickel bread and celery. Lemon in the finish. Odd stuff. Convoluted.

murky nut brown, thin cream head. Nose is light construction, rind, nut and chocolate, bit minty and lemon-strong. Flavor is moderate Brett, light salt, bit of thin crackery finish. Fizzy body competes, all old flavors. Weird, too much contrast.

Bottle. Spicy aroma, i couldn’t think of the spice, definitely herbal and spicy though. Some corky aromas and flavours come through. Some subtle hints of pepper and coriander. Yeasty, citric finish, which is long and quite dry. Very nice.
