4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 75cl, at RBNG-14 Grand Tasting. Lots of off-white head forms over an unclear golden body. The aroma has a nice faint woody touch, it’s lightly peppery and there’s citrusy and some malty notes. Orange peel in the back. The flavor has the same peppery, woody touch, with some pale malts and quite a lot of orange. Full body, quite dry, and quite heavily carbonated. Lasting finish with a good bitterness and some orange. Pretty wonderful this one, could easily have a few of this. 140215

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from beastmaster shared after two gushing Black Damnations. This was the third gusher of the night but luckily not sour or gross. I guess the farmhouse yeast went a little crazy. November 4, 2013 dated bottle poured on Jan 25, 2014. Pours cloudy/hazy yellowish orange with a massive white head that goes on forever. Aroma of serious cat piss (in a good way), some lemon peel, some sharp bretty type aromas, and funky grass and hay. Flavor is light honey, lots of lemony citrus, a hint of spice (I assume from the rye but it is far back in the background), and a good bit of dry bretty finish. Light mouthfeel and medium plus carbonation, nice and airy and very drinkable. A nice changeup from the standard stuff out there. Solid brew.

Aroma is very floral, noble hop aroma with some rye. Taste is rye tang with some bitterness up front, hop flavor and some farmhouse funk and spice. This one is extremely well balanced.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
75 cl bottle @ home (WARNING: gusher, so open in the sink and preferably have a couple of glasses ready, unless you want to lose most of the bottle’s contents - my bottle certainly kept gushing for a while). Pours hazy yellow with some sediment and a white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma and flavour are funk, citrus, yeast, herbs, and pepper - with a dry finish.
