4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted on 6/29/14 from a capped 750mL bottle purchased at Bruisin’ Ales. Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a thick, fizzy white head that recedes fairly quickly to nothing at all. The nose is really great, with plenty of fresh, honeyed strawberry, a great sour note, and earthy white peppercorn. The flavor is the same with sour strawberry, a touch of spicy and funky yeast, and plenty of earthy white peppercorn. The body is medium with lively, almost sparkling carbonation, and a long earthy white pepper and strawberry finish.

3-4 oz bottle pour at ChurchKey courtesy of Eric, thanks! Hazy orange with off-white head. Aromas of stone fruit, light funk. Tastes of stone fruit, tart acidic notes, light funk, a bit of strawberry. Medium body with a dry finish. Pretty tasty though not sure I’d pay the $30 going price for a bottle.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell in London - big thanks to Kenneth. Pours cloudy pale gold with a scant, foamy white head. The nose holds light herbs, salt, lemon, wood and berries. Medium sweet flavor, moderately acetic, with pale bread, lemon, sweat. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sharp acetic finish, sweaty, with hints of wintery spices. Novel, but not terribly drinkable.

Vintage bottle courtesy of jcartamdg. Cheers, Jason! Pours a hazy yellow-orange with pink highlights. Nose is berries, pepper, honey, saison malts, and a nice fruity yeast. Flavor is similar with lots of strawberries, some saison malts, some Belgian yeast, and some pepper. Medium in body and delicious overall.

Orange and cloudy pour from draft at Two. White head. Strawberry and peppery happiness. I thought the Halia I just had was incredible and this might be better.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a bright golden color with a frisky tight bubbled white foam. The nose is a complex array of strawberry, yeast, vinous acidity and a bit of rustic grain. The palate is light and refreshing with nice complexity. Pepper, strawberry, hay, vinous oak, bright acidity... a touch thin but very enjoyable.
