3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml served in a Duvel tulip.
Batch 1063/1064 Bottled: 04-05-2012
A - Murky brown body with 3 fingers of moundy head slowly collapses into several different textures of foam. Excellent retention with minimal lacing.
S - Fresh fruity esters, green apple, watermelon, lemon, green grass, dry funky yeast, earthy and spicy herbal aromas. Salty wood and white balsamic come out as it warms.
T - Moderate grassy and zesty citrus hops add aggressive bitterness that pushes against a mild grain malt. Hints of berry fruit and tannins coat the back of the tongue. Salty and woody with a dry bitter finish.
M - Moderate prickly carbonation, medium body, dry finish.
Well itís definitely hoppy. More so in the flavor than the nose. Very complex nose though. Crunchy herbal dryness. The hops are right on the edge of choking all other flavors out. I havenít had the original so I canít compare the two. If you feel like a hopped up Saison this should feed your craving well.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty unique! Crazy dark copper pour w/ a huge white foamy head. The aroma is very sour & taste somewhat sour but different & interesting. I appreciate the originality here. Nice & tasty at the low 4.7%.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Noticeable hops up front, notes of citrus, pine... Not particularly sour for a JP, but definitely lingering hop character throughout.... Enjoyable

Tap at Sugar Maple. This is a great beer. Barky(?) clean and smooth medium body. Mineral delicate hops, some soapy peppery tones, and some tropical tones. A complete delight to drink, incredibly sessionable. Mellow on the palate, with an almost English feel I suppose. Lots of depth. Classic, yet quirky. Great.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Citrus lemon/lime, tropical fruit and some funky yeast. Effervescent with a foamy (bottle almost blew up) white head and cloudy orange. Lemon and lime in the flavor as well, with a nice bitterness and very dry. Grassy and some spicy hops that play nicely with the other flavors. A nice flavorful patio beer.
