2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a bottle. Slightly cloudy orange with a very slight and quickly disappearing head. Peppery aroma. Even more pepper in the taste with a weedy vegetation backbone. Pretty strange this one and not exactly my thing.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
[355ml bottle, The Beerhive, Edinburgh] Slightly hazy orange pour with a decent white head, although it reduces very quickly. Aroma is extremely similar to Anchor Christmas beers - cinnamon and clove, spice and mint. I then read the label and discovered it has bay leaves in there. Bay leaves! That then became the overriding aroma and flavour. Also on the taste, I got diluted Red Bull and orange. I’m all for experimenting, but I’m also for tipping them down the sink, on occasion

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Brew Dog Camden - 28/08/12.
Hazy orange colour with an off white head that soon dissipates completely.
Aroma is of medicine, honey strepsils, herbs and bitter orange rind.
Tastes of sour orange and grapefruit, cough drops, linctus.
Medium body with matching carbonation finishes on a sour medicinal note.
Preffered this to the BD version!

Red cabbage. Apple juice. Juniper berry. This tastes like one of my favourite Dutch dishes: beef stew with red cabbage and apple. I liked it this way, but I can imagine that people not into this style really dislike it. But hey, there are hoppy beers for you.

Hazy orange. Aroma of spices, laurel, pickles, stew. Flavor is sour spicy and quite thin. Great to make meat stew, but hardly nice to drink

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Keg at Brewdog. Over cold. Hazy Amber with no head. Red berry Red wine nose. Tastes sour. Not sure how much that was the intention but it’s disconcerting in an IPA challenge. If you’d presented me this as a Belgian sour challenge, I’d have been more sympathetic. Pretty poor.
