1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
750 ml bottle - pours dark orange with a tiny shimmering head, odd. Aroma of superartificial apple juice, lime and cloves - not cool. Apple juice comes back but with a dustry and stringent mouthfeel. Quite repellant. Total miss. Pity

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The golden amber color was deeper in shade than most BSPAs, and the the head atop was three finger thick. The smell was not typical of a wild ale, as I did not get any Brett character via the nose. I could only detect sour cherries and honey via the nose. The taste was similar to the smell, with honey like sweetness, and green apple sourness. There was a bit of an unexpected hop bite to this as well. The body was on the light side of medium, and aided in the quenching nature of the beer. The alcohol was very well hidden, and the strength lable was shocking compared to the experience.

Beige creamy head. Brown colour. Aroma is malty, fruity (pineapple, banana and fig) with light candy notes. Flavor is malty too with fruity (peach, walnut and date) and light alcohol tones, ending in a moderately amaretto finish. Medium to full bodied.
