Hmmm. Not sour or funky. Kind of a bland amber ale. More of a grainy aroma than anything. It looks like the standard amber color with average head. The taste was a dry bitterness but without any real hop characteristic that stood out. Medium to light bodied. Not sure what to make of this beer because I can’t really tell what they were going for but as far as my tastes go I didnt even want to finish my glass.

October 25th, 2013 - I haven’t seen the Roraima around since I first had this a couple of years ago, but it was a fun beer, if not as Belgian as I would have liked. The aroma out of the tasting glass was a little muted, but there were some expressions of pecan and maple, though more savory and vegetal than either of these aromas would suggest. The taste is on the flatter side, subtler, but keeps pushing the savory sides of both pecan and maple syrup. Thus, in nose and on the tongue, think of roasted, unglazed pecan nuts, and for the syrup, Grade A - light and graceful and even a little botanical.

Tap at Raglan in OB. Hazy brownish orange with a small off-white head, fading to a thick ring and island of foam before long. Not sure what to make of this--kinda apple cidery with some papery plum caramel notes. Not a very strong aroma. Flavor follows, still pretty cidery, maybe some citrus hoppiness added. Not much sweetness to be had, finishes dry and earthy with bitterness peaking at a 2-3. Low carbonation with a medium body. First beer from these guys I did t like--I dunno what they were going for, or if they succeeded. Way too cidery for me, or maybe it’s the weird combo of the brett and the hops? No sé.

Pours a medium amber with a small white head which fades to some lacing. Aroma is of apples, sour fruit, toasted malt, pine, and a little funk. Taste is similar to the aroma but maybe and a bit more robust. Has a medium body with a slightly watery mouthfeel feel and a slightly bitter, medium finish. Overall, a very interesting, decently tasty, unique amber.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Tap at Modern Times. Full haze muddy amber pour. Nose is oxidized, vegetal, sugar. Taste is apple, sugar, soap, slightly tart apple. Probably not what was intended.

On tap @ Modern Times. Turbid amber pour with almost no head. Smells like apple juice, green apple, cedar, and some hints of acetone. Light toast and pepper. Flavor is surprisingly bland/watery. Still lots of green apple, cedar, and pepper. Grass, light yeast, and a mild malt and apple juice sweetness.
