3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle… RBWG ‘10… Murky, caramel-colored ale with lots of floaties and a small, fizzy, white head. The aroma is a tangy, lavish swirl of caramel, funk, assorted nuts and nameless fruits. Light-bodied and astringent with tingly carbonation. Tangy, acidic flavor is well-balanced by good, tannic bitterness. Touches of caramel and another unknown fruit. Finishes tangy and dry. Thanks to darkguardian for sharing a growler of this interesting beer!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap into a sampler glass. Aroma is low key brett with a malty character in the forefront. Taste is very woody, not necessarily in a bad way. Sourness is more of a supporting role in this beer making it fairly drinkable.
