Last sampel courtesy of maniac in my echo of the RBSG 07. Medium amber. Still some decent carbonation. Great nose of sour cherry and bitter almond with a touch of brett. Flavor unfortunately is considerably more muted, with almost hefe like flavors of clove and banana dominating, with no real sourness. Great nose, too bad the flavor wasn’t anything like it. I probably should have put the aroma at a 9 and the flavor at a 6, but you get the idea.

Sampled at the brewey tasting room. Light brown with a good light tan head. Sweet fruity aroma. I typically don’t go for these types because they’re just to darn sweet for me but this was very good and at only 6% makes it an easy drinker. Wish I had of bought the big bottle

A sample at the sexual chocolate tasting. Slightly hazed orange pour with off white head and lace. Aroma of spiced malt. A flavor of Belgian yeast and some fruitiness. Carbonation is ok for the style. Overall a very good drinker.

This had been sitting in a corner in the garage for around 8 months. Very particulate mahogany color with mellow tan head. Aroma of warm dark fruits, plums, cranberries. I can only assume the flavor had mellowed, because I tasted a sweet, smooth, not quite winey beer. Definitely allow to come to temperature.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by a mystery person at the pre-sex gathering. Appearance is a cloudy orange amber with lots of yeast floating around. Aroma is slightly bready and yeasty with a bit of tartness. Flavor has a bit of tartness, some citrus, wood, and light malt. Pretty nice and smooth overall. Unlike most raters here, I thought this was pretty good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle sampled on 2/1/08: Pours a transparent copper orange with a large, frothy pillowy light tan head. Aroma of slightly tart semi-sweet caramel malt with some funky brett. Starts mildly sweet and tart with some muddled drier brett flavor and toasted caramel malt. Finishes earthy and chewy. Needs some more tartness for balance.
