4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Absoultely loved this from cask at the Draught House in Austin. Presentation is like an English real ale, with the same free-drinking body. But the sour twists and the beautifully accenting hops make this rare and wonderful - - an exciting play on a variety of understated themes - - sort of a farmhouse ESB saison barleywine. I would give anything to have this stuff in the fridge, or otherwise handy, but I don’t think they bottle it, and I live in Wisconsin.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Paul’s. Poured an orange bidy with a smaller fizzy white head. Aroma was bad, notes of urinal puck, funk, earthiness, acorns, lemons and band aids. Slightly thinner body with a harsh acidic burn despite creamy carbonation. Flavor is better than the aroma, notes of lemons, earth, toast, slight vinegar and funk. Meh
