1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz bottle pours a murky orange with lots of fluffy white head. Nose has plenty of dusty couch, lots of yeast, dried citrus peel, white flour. Smells like something’s off. Flavor has a ton of stale flour, soggy cracker, lots of dusty couch, some plastic, some lemon that’s been left out way too long. Finishes like a cheese grater on your tongue. Drain pour.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz. bottle. These guys have a production problem. The same godawful flavor was present in this beer as it was in the bottle of their berry ale. Only this time there was no berry to hide the aroma. Pours innocently enough a hazy gold with a large white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left sticky lace. The aroma is a combination of airplane glue and plastic. Its almost vaporous; you can breath it in. The flavor is off-putting with the same airplane glue and plastic. Totally undrinkable. The same issue with two different beers seems to point to a systemic problem that needs attention.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pouring at the Hudson River Fest in Beacon. Pours a lightly hazed amber with a thin white head. Vegetal, sweet and floral. Light tartness, soft citrus hops. Tangy, tastes a bit infected. Interesting that one of the brewers said the “sour finish” was “due to the bottle conditioning”. Soft musk, light tangy notes. Gentle acid and bitterness.
