3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle from Andersons in Sylvania. Batch 996 - Bottled 03-12-2012. Murky orange pour with a thin white head and light sheets of lacing. Aroma is wood, apple, funk, spices. Tastes are farmhouse, lightly tart, oak, brett, pepper - floral, herbal hops - apple, little soapy, straw, spruce. Bitter hops come through late (kind of covering some of the flavors) and finishes dry. It’s interesting - though probably not worth 17 quid.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the DBLDP on 09/02/2012: Hazy dark golden color with a medium off-white head that evaporates steadily to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Woody brett aroma with some hops behind it. Light-bodied with a funky character and notes of oak, malt and citrusy hops. The finish is tart with an earthy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at the Beer Hall in Waterloo, IA... that’s right... Waterloo, IA
Pours a blonde color with a big head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is earthy, a little briny, some melon rind, some doughiness, a bit of earthy hop. Some barnyard horse and hay character is going on here as well.
The Flavor is lightly sour, lemony, and quite earthy. The hoppiness is fairly light but ever-present, leafy, earthy, and enjoyable. The beer has a bit of exotic fruitiness and a little bit of light brine.
The palate is lively, but the 750ml bottle goes down way way too fast....

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden ale with a foamy off white head. Sour funk nose. Some horse blanket, wet oak and warmed orange juice. Not unpleasant but this is still not my favorite style.

Belgian Pale Ales are really becoming a favorite of mine. Great citrus and spicy oak aroma with a slight off note that i couldnt really describe, maybe seafood? but it was very slight. Otherwise great lightly tart funky belgian pale.

Bottle courtesy of pepsiedcan. Beer aged on stones??? Pours a very cloudy tangerine color with a thick,white head. Aromas of lemon, some light funk, slightly tart. Taste follows suit - no noticeable hops, slightly tart with a dry finish. Very different and interesting.

750 ml to snifter (Batch 996). Looks good; orange with white lacing. Smells good too; tart, dry, and hoppy with oak notes. Tastes good, but surprisingly tart. Nice on the palate. Very good; flavor reminds me of Jolly Pumpkin.

Cloudy orange brown beer. Thin white head. Palate starts crisp but turns softer. Starts spicy and a little sour. Quickly overwhelmed by hop bitterness. Finishes crisp and dry with some sour oak. Unfortunately the hops impart little but bitterness which overwhelms the other things going on.
