Jow (3191) - New York, USA - APR 4, 2016
Bottle at clockwork tasting. Golden with nose of sugary cheese. Tastes of yogurt, cheese, cherry, fruit, some bile. Not as terrible as that sounded but pretty bad.

hopscotch (10523) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2015
Bottle... Pours mostly clear and yellow with a fleeting, white head. The nose provides a slight, unfortunate note of acetone jumbled with fuzzy fruits and pluots. Light-bodied and water-thin with nearly no carbonation. The flavor is lightly tart and very watery. Finishes thin and falls flat. Not gross, just not much here.

Bottle - Pours light amber. Smells and tastes like rubber tire covered in cheese. I need to use the bathroom now. Bye

Bottle courtesy of Joel, thank you sir. This one smelled and tasted like medicinal maraschino cherries.

MrChopin (3999) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 19, 2014
thanks to Joel. Bubblegum and puke nose, heavy buteric and butter. Flavor is thin lime front before plastic overrides everything. Eating Legos? Thin, terrible, even hot. Horrid stuff.

daknole (10785) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Yellow pour, white head. Hmmmm sour? No. Apples, pears, dirty dishwater. What the fuck.

nimbleprop (6866) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 2, 2014
750ml bottle pours a hazy orange with a ring of white head. Nose is like raw saw dust, some fruity, some nail polish, shitty muscat grape. Flavor is like cheap sparkling muscat wine, apple skins, saw dust, band aid (but not in the good way). Dusty finish. Bad, complete drain pour.

TheAlum (6812) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Bottle at the Pant-y Raid NYE Tasting (Chicago, IL). Pours a fairly murky orange golden hue, a bit darker, with some nice glow with frothy whitish head. Some mellow lacing and stick around overall. Aromas show funk,cobwebs and basement meet some gentle cherryskin, tartness and lactic elements. A bit grainy, more funky and dry, some tartness and fruit comes in as we get further in. Solid. Initial is a bit more fruity than the nose let on, tart cherries meet crab apple, bready grains and straw. A bit lighter, well carbonated and dry as we move on. Some gentle tartness keeps pushing as a crash of funk and cobwebs, horseblanket start to assert. A decent oaky tannic presence into the backend, some gentle vanillin and yogurt. Touches of cherryskin taper off, some firmer funk, a bit of muddled grainy malts, bread, and straw as we finish up. A bit non-deScript, but palatable. Found the nose a bit more aggressive as the beer lacks a defining characteristic, simply going through the motions. Ok.
