Bottle courtesy of bu11zeye. Clear straw yellow with a high amount of carbonation. Absolutely no head. Smell is crazy alcoholic with some elements of fruit and tart cider. Whoa tart taste and stoutly alcoholic. Feels like a wine with the heavy mead presence. Good but wow!

mabel (7455) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2009
[2005-20090219] 375mL bottle. Sweet potato spicy yeast aroma with mild sweaty skin notes. Clear, pale yellow body with no head and thick legs. Mild potato wood cask flavour with mild ’sake’ characteristics and a long sweet finish. Light-medium body. Not super fussed about it, it kind of reminds me of bodily fluids.

blankboy (6667) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2009
Bottle (375ml) shared with HogTownHarry, garthicus, GregClow, jerc & mabel -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a very, very pale oily gold with no head. Aroma: Whoa Nelly, it’s almost sake-like, whoa! Lots and lots of alcohol along with some sweet honey and floral notes. Strong flavour of alcohol and honey, slightly floral and with some wood and a strong boozy finish. Nice oily body. Pretty good (but damn it’s boozy!).
