Bottle. **** MAJOR GUSHER ALERT **** I got about 4oz of drinkable beer after this one gushed all over my floor. Interesting aromas and I had a hard time pin pointing the smells - fruity, spices, floral, and some funkiness. Tastes of the same with a funky finish. Just wish I was able to get more in my glass than on my floor...

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the recent cellar offerings, at Blue Monk. Very barnyard. In fact barnyard gets in the way of all else. If not for the style I would suspect skunking. Lacey, above average mouthfeel. Some taste with that horse.Not great drinkability.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355mL thanks to bin2. The pour is hazy glowing orange with a larger, bright white, rocky head. High carbonation. Sheety rings of lace. Nose is awesome floral and citrus Brett, fresh pink lemonade, hints of Asian melons like jackfruit, fresh barnyard wood and hay. Taste is very delicate, pillowy, light grapefruit and orange, hints of lemon zest. In the backend some white peppercorn heat. Soft, doughy, saltwater palate. Really good stuff. Certainly a winning recipe for sure- I would certainly keep this beer in the regular lineup. Nice job Ryan and company.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle at Schouskjelleren Mikrobryggeri. The huge and dense head is white as chalk and stays well on top of a cloudy, lightly amber coloured body. Blooming and fresh aroma of spiced citrus hops. Flavoured with subdued tartness and offset by mild candy sweetness. Herbal dry ending. Quite unusual and innovative brew. Soft and refreshing. Springtime feel, indeed (Oslo, 16.03.2012).
