2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was a good looking nut brown color that had a generous amount of head. The taste was along the lines of a sour ale but did improve with multiple glasses. Glad I tried it but not something I would rush out to have again.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2005 Itís a hazy, earth brown color with a slender light brown head. This is a very light drink that fizzes up in the mouth. Itís got a delicate toffee and fruit (apples, pears) flavor with a bit of peppery spiciness to it. Light, tart finish. Okay.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 mL bottle, corked & caged: cloudy fiery orange body with a highly retentive off-tan cream. Soft yeasty aroma with pear skins, Granny Smith apples, heather, and red grapes. Fizzy mouth feel delivering sweet orangey alcohol and bit of iron bundled with the yeast. Bitter, metallic qualities blend all sorts of interesting yeast accents, orange rinds, bitter honey comb and lime zest. Lingering moist bret, iron and yeast make this one a fairly complex treat, for those folks who like a bit interesting yeast.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I really wanted to love this beer, if only for the fact that the glass is really cool and I wanted to use it as much as possible. Unfortunately, it isnít quite what it should be. It tastes very chemically and yeasty, without much else pleasant, discernable taste. Left a bitter aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottled) Very hazy, very dark amber color with a medium head. Fruity, toffee-caramely, malty, slightly port-wineous aroma with light chocolate hints. Very malty, sweetish, port-wineous flavor with some sourness and lots of fruit. Medium-bodied, somewhat carbonated, slicky, sugary and slightly thick palate. A very nice and tasty ale, but surprisingly thin considering the aroma. Very easily drinkable and not too sweet.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I was quite surprised with this brew. It was not what I was expecting considering the name.
Poured a hazy copper color with long lasting tan head. Aroma of mild malt, yeast and mild candied fruit. This tasted more like a decent dubbel minus the appearance of chocolate notes than a bock but bock presence was noted. Hmm,$7 a 750ml. Iíll definately have to find more. Nice.

Bottled (BB 08/2006)
Dark copper-red and clear color, steady creamy head. Aroma has malts, plastic and earwax. Medium-bodied, hides ABV very well. Sour, malty and fruity flavor. Spicey leather tones. Quite unique brew.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This reddish brown ale pours with a large tan head. The strong slightly fruity aroma and the sweet, tart flavor are indeed unique, as the brewer claims. I agree with "Footy" that the flavor is sort of a cross between Flemish sour brown and German bock. Very nice beverage!
