3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Blend #2, bottled in April 29, 2010.
Appearance: The body is a hazy amber with a towering light tan head that dissipates very slowly. The head dissipates very unevenly, creating a maze through to the liquid.
Aroma: The aroma is tart and funky with some leather, lemons and bright cherries. Very enticing!
Taste: Slightly tart with cherries up front into musky malts with an overlying tart lemon. The finish is mild and refreshing, semi-tart lemon and hints of malts. This drinks nice for a 3 year old beer.
Palate: A bit watery with mild carbonation. The bottle is slowly gushing, pushing up a snake of carbonation, so Iím guessing the carbonation is leaving the beer and not present in the body despite a huge head.
Overall: I wasnít expecting much, but this is decent. I like the bright lemon and cherry flavors but the malts have become musky and distract from the flavor. The beer is also overcarbed, but at the same time itís lost the carbonation in the body. I would like to try this fresh as itís likely great.

Poured 7-11-12 from bomber: Interesting in not a good way; like wild ale with extra acid on throat. Pumpkin-like esters. 3.75 BD, 4.2 Joek- Not good smell, latent pepper, want to dump out. Ultimate question- "why finish the beer?"
