3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2 ounce bottle purchased from Oliver’s in Albany, NY. Shared with my brother, ChazyRPH. Roasty, grainy, lightly vinous aroma. There are some light chocolate notes present as well. This is an interesting, but pleasant aroma that I am having some difficulty putting a finger on. Mildly hazy orangey-amber colored body with a nice frothy, tan head. Sweet, sugary malts to start, which turns more roasted in the middle. Becomes chewy, caramelly with some late vinousness present in the end. Similar to a quad. Tasty and enjoyable. A baby quad. This becomes drier as it goes on and becomes a little less drinkable.

Bottle. This is one of the oddest beers I’ve ever drank. While drinking this I started to really hate it and it became a major letdown. I decided it wasn’t going to be a drainpour and soon it really changed it’s flavor on me like that. I guess about 20 minutes of warming could really make that much a difference for a beer. Aging could do this wonders.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cL bottle. Golden amber color with nice, lasting head. The aroma is incredible with pear and strawberry and a touch of sweetness. The flavor is crisp and the yeast provides a very fresh and dry sensation. There is a slight bitterness in the aftertaste that is an interesting balance to the profile. Similar to a Belgian blonde ale. Great beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From the bottle pours copper with a overwhelmingly fizzy head, kinda hard to pour. Kinda funky yeast flavor shows well, giving the finish a acidic and lightly sour flavor with some yeast spice. Fruity up front, citrus and caramel with earthy tones. Finish dries it out nicely and the mild sourness keeps it refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours an auburn-copper body with a large frothy white head which slowly dissipates leaving significant sheets of lace. Yeasty alcohol aroma with notes of bready oranges and butterscotch. Sweet caramel and some faint chewy fruitiness. Yeasty palate with some apparent alcohol warmth. Pleasantly toothsome leaving some spice on the finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dry musty malt aroma. Reddish amber with gigantic head initially that collapses quickly. Sharp acidity hits the tongue first followed by light musty malt with a moderate hops finish. Light body but the mustiness linger quite a while after swallowing. Good but could use more body.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Says French Red ale on the label under the name. Same label otherwise. Not too red for a red ale. Pours gold, with a massive head that fills 90% of the glass. The aroma is heavy with fruity esters and malt. Heavy body, with a flat mouth feel. A bit sour in the finish.
