4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Paul tasting. Perfect bright orange pour with a big fat white head leaving terrific lacing. Nose is slightly vinous with lemon tart, a touch of funk, berry - raspberry, blueberry, tarty and sweet with a hint of orange zest. Taste is heavily vinous with a big berry hit, works well. Citric rind and light spice round it off nicely. Light sweetness but dry finish. Rounds off perfectly and superbly balanced. Very good

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Gushes, cloudy gold with pillowy white head. Nose is great: floral, pepper, fruity esters. Flavour... dry and thin at first, seems to have alcohol, barnyard and pepper soon take over. Traditional yeast-forward Noble style. Very nice, but alcohol was definitely apparent here for me in the flavour, I guess itís just the high attenuation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours hazy golden with a very large puffy off-white head that slowly dissipates leaving sticky lacing. Aroma is quite light, lemony, fruity, yeast. Flavor is about the same, a bit of peppery spice mixed in as well. Lightly sweet and really quite fruity. Some yeasty funk coming in late as the mouth starts to dry out to the finish. Medium body, heavy carbonation in the mouth. Nice effort.

Bottle. Aroma is green apple, sour, and brie cheese. Taste is pretty mild but has a little bit of a bite that makes it nice and crisp. I had this with some brie and it was delicious.
