3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home in London. Pours perfectly clear yellow-gold, effervescent, with a large, frothy white head. Nose holds lots of white bread, dough, some vanilla frosting. Medium to big sweet flavor, lots more simple, doughy-bready pale malts, hints of orange cream soda, white sugar, hay. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Light warmth to finish, some overripe lemon, wet dough. Starts alright but I’m not crazy about the finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy amber colour, thick white, persistent head. Very perfumey aroma, oak, lactic sourness and a bit of barnyard funkiness. Slight citric aroma as well. Flavour is fairly sweet, perfumy, cherry, black pepper, and bit of sherry-oxidized wine character in here. Full-bodied, yet refreshing. Light spice and a touch of juniper in here as well. Complex and very tasty.

Abundant lasting yeasty foam on top of yellow golden. Some floral and yeast and alcohol smell. Taste is so-so

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gold-amber colour, clear. yellowish head, slowly disappearing but lacy. Alcohol nose, dry, candi-sugar, nearly syrupy - and also something like dried moss. taste is very dry-sweet (candi-sugar again), slightly citrus-rind. Lots of alcohol, alcohol-burn, sugar becomes cloying. More of the same in the aftertaste. Unimpressive.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy orange/gold in colour. Aromas are sweet caramel malts and spices. Flavours have the same characteristics as the aroma with more spices and alcohol burn. Decent.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dusty cereal and hay reluctant to wed the comely, silky sweetness...Wild rice allusions spark the flavorful malt husks...Fizzier than the full Bavaisienne and less coherent in its intricacies, but nonetheless an honest rural raconteur...
