Tap at Feral. Not much to say here. Doesnt quite compare to most of their beers. A tad farmhousey with some lingering citrus. Quite boring but easily sessionable if youíre looking for something like this brew

Funny piss like smell. Lots of carbonation. THe taste is actually a reasonable approximation of the style, but the piss comes through again, which is a bit off putting. Solid but needs work.

Tap, listed as 4.3% ABV. Just hazy gold with a lovely white mousse-y head. Aroma of honey, flowers, peel, coriander. Light-bodied. Tasting reveals the "honey" as palm sugar - unusual and it works. Sweet with some sourness (not obviously less than Funkie Junkie) and spices. Finishes slightly sweet and quite spicy. Good.

on tap, brewtopia06. labelled provencal. hazy golden with a sure, bulbous head. big dupont yeast and custard aroma. great mix of flavours - dry leaves, white grape, assorted citric peel with a tart finish. i thought this was the best oz attempt to brew a belgian style ale that iíve had the good fortune to try

1, 3, heck I lost count schooners of IIPA and a side of ploughmanís lunch may have obscured my tasting of this, but I ordered a pint to make sure my tasting wasnít too offside. I see my notes donít match the others which also donít match each other, meaning this beer has changed over the years. Poured a hazy, pale sunny gold with a very thin short listed white layer of bubbles that managed a leg or two. Alongside the IIPA the aroma for this one was disappointing with only a light apple peal, clove and herbal note that I could have mistook for a Scrumpy in a blind tasting. Tight, watery and softly tart in the mouth. Apples and cloves are still oddly prominent; no malt is there, seems to have soured. No real sweetness. Quite fresh, but watery without definition and actually becomes clammy as it begins to warm. Souring milk, pulped tomatoes and apples make the palate as the spritzy carbonation wanes. Finish is short and only shows some watered down apple cordial. Not the best, especially after the magnificent IIPA. I suppose it was still braindeadedly sessionable. Weird. One to try again!!!

DuffMan (6745) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 13, 2005
Hazy orange, wheaty with some citrus and spice, light palate. Similar character to a heffeweissen but not as estery. A pleasant summer beer.

Hazy amber orange with a small short lasting off white head. Aroma is very faint spicey and malty sweet. Lowcarb thin body. Candy malt sweetness dominates the flavour overwhelming everything else. Good to see a small brewery trying something different. I donít think it really quite worked out.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2006 Wanted to try the stout but this was there replacement for the summer. I think I would have preferred the stout though. Cloudy orange colour with no head and no lacing. The highest in alcohol of their lot and that didnít make it the best. Glad I tried it last as it was too sweet for me to have anymore beer afterwards. Re-rate 30/07/06. Once again wanted to try something else but settled for this when it was not available. Anyway this deserves a better rating than my original rant, it hasnít changed much in taste but head and lacing were now present and still quite filling.
