Bottle @ The HUGE Tasting. The pour’s gold with a small head. The nose is strong oak. Lemon, white apple. Wild yeasty funk. The taste is similar. Lemon. Hints of vanilla and peach. Soft body, light carbonation. Really tasty, but somewhat under-carbed.

3rd January 2014
Mega Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Lightly hazy pale gold beer, residual white head. Light palate, mildly crisp. Mellow sourness turning a little acetic. Light lemon fruit. Worcestef sauce. Finishes dry. It’s tasty but too acidic for me to want much of it.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, generously shared by Kenny at the Big Friday tasting. It pours lightly hazy golden with a minimal white head. The nose is wood, vanilla, coconut, sour peach, apricot and sherbet. The taste is crisp, tart, sherbet, sour peach, apricot, some acidity juicy white grape and a touch of alcohol with a dry, tart finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. A lot of Duck Duck Gooze character about it. Smooth, crisp and very drinkable. One of my favourites of the box set.

Taste comprises bitter fruits, lemon rind, light acidic strains, dank wood, hay, funk, tarte lemon curd.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, tarte dry closure.
Decent sour, easy drinking, lemon focussed, not a huge amount of complexity though.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared during the Track Set interval of the Brokeback Revisited tasting in London. Cheers Kenny! Song didn’t really match this beer regardless of how good the song is. Another average looking pour. Nose is a winner though - big acidic lemon juice, cheesecake biscuit, hay and lemon curd. Nice tart. Taste is lemon curd forward, very tangy and zesty citric notes. Quite oily and sweet behind the moderate funkiness. Decent beer

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared during the Track Set portion of the Brokeback Revisited tasting. Paired with the proper song, of course. Thanks to Kenny! Pours mostly clear, deep yellow-orange with a few bubbles for a head. Good and clean in the nose, a bit of hay, lemon, funk. Light sweet flavor with balanced but assertive tart lemon, tangerine, light acidity. Light to medium in body with delicate carbonation. Clean and twangy to finish, more tart lemons, mild sweat, faint bitter hay and citrus rind. Wonderful stuff. Don’t think the song paired well, though.
