3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, thanks to Ken at a Pre-Sour & Bitter hotel tasting. It pours hazy amber, with a thick beige head. The nose is spice, farmyard, hay, citrus pith and alcohol. The taste is farmyard, spice, citrus pith, boozy, dry, dough and way, with a warming finish. Medium body, moderate-high carbonation and velvety mouth-feel. A decent beer, but a bit too much alcohol for my liking.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A solid beer. I fear that a great beer like this without the barrel aging or funky ingredients might be lost in the madness. Nce earthy hops and just a slight yeast funk go well together. Alcohol is unnoticeable. If I lived in TX I could drink a bunch of these.
