3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a hazy orange with cm of disappearing head. Smells like citrus fruits, cognac booziness and oak. Taste is ripe fruit sweetness, malty caramel and cognac sharpness. Almost a brett sourness. Nice bitterness. Another adventurous beer by moon dog, fuck yeah!

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
A-- How to put this nicely...UGLY looking beer. Poured a drity, muddy brown/orange/rust color. Just a thin, off white collar head that evolved into film. Any semblance of aggressive swirling got no more than a few extra gurgles of bubbles. Visible alcohol legs on the sides of the glass. Low to no carbonation showing.
S-- Orange marmalade, Pineapple, Pine, Honey, and rubbing alcohol. No barrel smell but that is OK. Just a soft nose.
T-- Cognac soaked pine and oak. Like the idea but not sure it works real well. Borderline flat quite honestly as just has no carbonation lift so really the heavy qualities shine more.
M-- Heavy and more heavy. Carbonation would do wonders for this. Lots of cognac and oak notes from the barrel. Bits of dull pineapple and citrus. Coganc barrel finish and do like that part. Not real hoppy or much really. Pretty lifeless.
O-- Some aspects work on this but the lack of carbonation pretty much ends this for me. Might be bottle variation as have seen a review that was flat as well. Will not hold it against Moon Dog though as they are at least trying.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Denis’. Hazy pale orange amber, almost no head. Rich vinous nose, definite cognac, sour "nerds"!, apricot perhaps, mango, tropical fruit hops, tart funk. Amazing smell! Soft caramel, juicy sweetness, orange pith, touch of brett funk, long bitter finish. Tastes like a more standard IPA but smells like a sour. Crazy!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
03-JUN-2012, bottle @Papsř tasting.
Hazy orange with high lasting tan head.
Tart nose with some fruit and loads of brett.
Dry brett’y taste. No cognac.
Messy - a strange beast. Hops are there but clouded by brett. Almost sour. Very high carbonation.
Interesting but difficult to drink.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. An unclear dark golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of peaches, cognac, caramel, fruit, malt, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, over ripe fruits, alcohol, cognac, alcohol, and hops, leading to a bitter finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of maneliquor. Pours a hazy yellow with a dense and frothy shaving foam style head leaving quite some lacework. Very funky, Bretty nose with some fruity hops up there. Rich body, solid malt base, again massive funky Brett, slightly tart and a shitload of hops. Not so much Cognac though - I guess the barrel aging all turned into Brett! Nothing like what I expectec, but quite interesting indeed. 030612

Ok so these guys don’t lack for weirdness or intensity. There’s some fruitiness early from the hops but more about a big whack of abv bitterness and a layer of quite smart pepper. The alcohol is actually not that obvious but you can feel it in your bones post knocking off the beer. The aromas are very good - clean muted passionfruits and honey - very smart.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a creamy white head. Smells of light passion fruit, cognac, floral hops. Tastes of a medium sweetness, medium-large bitterness, some wood, and Cognac. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, creamy texture. Finishes dry, woody, slightly alcoholic, and a bit bitter. Nice.
