3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Beautiful clear amber pour with a thick head. Aroma is sweet and bready, some fruit and caramel, quite nice. Flavour is also sweet, fruit and bread, a bit cloying without much bitterness to balance, but some nice flavours.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark translucent orange color with large off-white head and some lacing. Aroma was very weak with light malts. Flavor had light fruit and malt flavors, some caramel and spices. It did taste a little oxidized, I’m not sure how old the bottle was, but I think it would have been more flavorful if fresh.

Hazy copper colour with a persistent, slightly soapy head. Herbal and malty aroma. A nice balance between the sweet and the savoury. Very mildly bitter. Well balanced.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is complex and enticing. The presentation is a knockout: deep and cloudy ruddiness with a frothy foamy head. Nice sticky lacing. Gives the appearance of an old-world classic, as it demands respect. Taste is yeasty and fruity. There is considerable depth, and the beer plays well to a hearty sloshing in the mouth as it reveals creaminess, something toasted, and some boozy alcohol. Reminds me of a fine Trappist trippel.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This had a very lively head, foamy and active. I couldn’t smell very much, but this was not an aged bottle. Taste was pleasant but not very strong and maybe lacked depth. I enjoyed it, though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy brick red pour with a thick, lasting off white head. Malty, caramel aroma. Sweet, with a nice caramel/toffee flavour, finishes with very low bitterness, alcohol warmth.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2oz brown bottle from A-1 To-Go in Gardiner. Pours a hazy golden almost red body with nearly an inch of off-white head. Smell is not overwhelming, but consists of spice, caramel, and fruit. Tastes fruity - like citrus, apple, pear... Some roast, yeast, and slight alcohol is apparent. Very dry, one of the driest beers I’ve had in some time. Fairly clean on the finish Medium in body with vigorous carbonation. A fairly easy drinker considering the abv. Not bad at all, but not necessarily something I’ll be seeking out again very soon. Well worth the try though, very unique.
