4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. 12 oz. Split with Vinny. Care of the Vinster. Pours turbid orange with a thin, wispy-laced white head. Aroma of strawberry, raspberry, blackberries, currants, blueberries, and some honey, funk, and varnish. Taste is some raspberry jam, with a bunch of strawberry and tart, oceany savory notes. Little sour in the finish. Fuck yeah. Great beer all around.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle with pat, pours a hazy brownish tinted copper. Medium white head, light clearish sporadic lacing. Aromas and taste are filled with tart fruits, wine, skinned fruit, wood, lactic acids, light metallics but not in a bad way. Full bodied and pleasant on the palate with a very nice nutty aftertaste. Taste is very Belgiany with delicious grains, yeast and sour dark fruits. This one is seriously underrated IMHO. Crisp apple tart finish. Ocean salts and other earthy sea tones. Caught us by surprise.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Murky golden ale with a quickly dissipating, white head. The bouquet is spicy and herbal with peppery hops. Medium to full-bodied with tickling carbonation. The flavor is a blend of tart and caramely sweet. Finishes tangy and a tad spicy. Age has been kind to this bottle. Thanks go out to darkguardian for sharing!

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Poured golden/amber with an off-white head. Not sure what this one was supposed to be. Mostly Belgian yeast spices and esters. Some malt sweetness and light fruits. Honey sweetness, the aroma of cooking jello, pepper spice, and herbal earthiness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Live rate: 14 karat pour with a razor thin white head that leaves quickly. Nose of Belgian yeast, candied fruit, peppery spice and honey baked biscuit. Flavor similar...quite sweet with lots of caramel & toffee. High ABV is a bit noticeable.
