UPDATED: DEC 22, 2007 Looks good, smells horrible, tastes funky. Nose has some very unpleasant skunkiness, like butter gone bad. Taste has the same funkiness. I couldn’t get over the fact that it just smelled and tasted like a dated butter. Mouthfeel was pleasant and there were some underlaying goodness too, I just didn’t get there yet. Re-rate (original 1.6): The previous bottle must’ve been a bad one or my palate just wasn’t ready for it. Had another and I enjoyed it very much. There is some ryeish "skunkiness" to it, but overall feel is nicely fresh and balanced with a rye twist. It’s very fresh when cold, propably due to juniper, which is otherwise quite subtly present. Actually a very refreshing beer, if not a bit thin. I would like to see this with a bit more body.

Hazy amber, disappearing soapy head. Nose is juniper & wood in general, earth, little banana spiciness and caramel malts. Interesting sour, stomach acidy flavor, though without the noble lambic complexity. Earth and slight yeast with a little smoky, dry woody finish. Low carbonation. This one has changed totally from my last tasting, and it’s the strangest thing I’ve had in a while.
