3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
At common table on cask with my mom. Pours murky brown with almond, no head. Aroma is woody horsey barnyard. Taste is oakie, hint of tannic notes. Some almost funky tart, dark farmhouse is a good description. Light and thin but not necessarily drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is an opaque, deep amber beer with a dense white head. The aroma is highly acidic but the flavor quite full and mellow like dominant notes of chocolate player on a peppery lemon cello. The palate is so full of fizz-induced foam it makes it hard to reorder.

Bottle. Pours dark amber with a big creamy head. Aroma is tart yeast with dark fruit and berries, brett and funk, as well as some sweet tobacco and vanilla. Full creamy body with average carbonation. Flavour is tart yeast, brett and berries, as well as a quite solid roasted malt backbone with bread and coffee. Lingering dry finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 75cl. Batch 22. Opens with a bang, but it’s no gusher. It pours an auburn, hazy body and a big, creamy, off-white head that collapses into finger-thick height. The aroma is sort of reminiscent of strawberries at first, but then there’s roasted malts, some prune hints and a good dash of funk. It is quite effervescent on the palate, dry and perhaps a bit thin. There’s orange zest, leather, roasted malts and dried fruits in the flavor, almost no sweetness. Lasting light roasted, funky and citrus peel-ish finish. Too carbonated this one, but it’s quenching and tasteful anyway. 140622

Bomber from Wilbur’s. Appearance: 3 fingers slightly off-white head, copper/amber color, cloudy, ok lacing. Aroma: grapes, molasses, light pine, light other fruitiness. Palate: light body, soft carbonation, dry and bitter finish, thin, almost watery texture, but in a good way. Taste: sweet fruit and very slightly tart, with a nice little piney bitterness taking over on the end. Overall, super unique, very very drinkable, and just pleasant.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
All sorts of fun stuff going on in this beaut. Nice fermented fruit smells, cherry, raisin, lemon and orange. This pup was pretty murky, dark and had some sediment floating about. Excellent taste here, light sweetness, lightly bitter, and medium sourness. Loads of earthy, rotting notes nicely coupled with sweet and sour fruitcake flavours and citrus pinch. Nice lively, dancing feel on the tongue. Went down smooth and left me wanting more.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Traded bottle, Batch 508 bottled 2-11-10. I kept skipping this bottle because I thought I had already rated it...multiple times. Clear, light brown color with bubbly carbonation that reminds me of Coke. Aroma is some light malt but with a nice lemony tartness. The flavor starts with more lemon tartness but then finishes with a slight earthiness. Nice.
