3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden colour, firm white head. Aroma of boiled egg, yeast, overcooked Brussels sprouts, cooked vegetables, cookies and light urine. Sweet malty flavour, quite fresh, yeast and light flowery hops. Light nuts and caramel. Malty finish, light sweetness.
The nose wasn’t too nice on this one, the rest is spot on. I’m guessing some sort of infection could be blamed for the strange aroma. Warrants a re-rate in the future.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Borefts 2012, Bodegraven. Pours clear, yellow gold with a lively white froth head. Tangy pale malt nose, some lemon hints. Medium sweet flavor, herbal, with ripe lemon and pale malts. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sugary sweet finish with some melon, grapefruit and more lemon. Far too sugary sweet. I like this style of beer, but this example was a bit too sweet.

3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Big creamy white head changes slowly into a white lacing on top of an almost clear bright yellow colored beer.
Smell cooked vegetables, sauerkraut, earth, cookies, urine… Not your average smell for a beer on Borefts, but the more interesting the taste will be.
Absolutely better taste than smell: lot of vegetables, some hops, malts, yeast, light flowery and some light nutty caramel notes, light medium bitter.
Short yeasty vegetable malt and grass aftertaste.
Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a creamy texture.
Smell I strange and not really good, the taste is a lot better. Not bad att all this beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Served from a jug at Borefts 2012. Hazy gold with a nice white head. Promisingly hoppy aroma spoilt by a strange and off-putting smell of sewage. Not sure I’d call it watery but it felt bloated and empty at the core with regards to mouthfeel, if that makes sense. Finishes well though with good fruity character. Bizarre but oddly charming through it all.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Draught @ Borefts 12. Hazy pale yellow color, small white head. Omg I so dislike this. Aroma and taste are like dishwasher-water or an unclean toilet. Yuk! Watery texture, unfresh, just really bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft @ Borefts 2012. The pour’s light gold with a eggy white head. The nose is honey, soft white bread, bakery. The taste is much the same. Softly sweet and approachable. Just a hint of herbal hop on the finish. Crisp, smooth. Overall, this was a welcomed change of pace during a festival dominated by high gravity monsters!
