3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gros col de mousse long à dissiper. Les premières gorgées sont beaucoup trop effervescentes. On a de la difficulté à goûter tellement la langue nous pique. Le liquide est en général très fade. Léger gout fruité, un peu de levures épicées... Buvable mais décevante.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and dispensed to a snifter, showing a cloudy, orangey gold color, with a tight layer of white head foam, and curtainy cling to the lacing. The nose was yeasty funk, tartness, spice, citrus, some pit fruit, and a touch of sweetness. Medium bodied, with lively carbonation, the taste added to these notes a dry, citrusy, rind-like, and earthy bitterness that included some lingering, tannic astringency. Finished quite dry, but also quite tasty.
