3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky amber with a light, temporary, airy head, and some floaties suspended as though in jelly. A very tasty aroma of sweet apples and rhubarb leads off, to be followed by the sweet, but well balanced flavour. However, there was just way too much carbonation, with the fizz attacking the mouth fiercely, and a bit of a metallic feel finishing the palate. Left it for a little while and let the fizz subside, which redeemed it somewhat, so after a good start it with a little patience it finished ok.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (330ml). At The Abbey, Ottawa. Poured hazy orange-yellow with an average off-white lasting foamy head, nice lacing. Aroma much like a German weissbier, orange juice, ashy hops, yeast, plenty of malt - mild. Taste much as promised by the nose - malt, yeast, some ash-hop bitterness at the end. Mouthfeel very acidic and lively, noticeable alcohol for 6%. Overall a bit too bitter-harsh for me, the fruity citrus malt gets a bit overwhelmed; finishes oddly like apple juice as it warms up.
