1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
[ Bottle ][ ½ of 75cl ][ Tasting ][ Trade ][ Snifter ][ 9.26.14 ]
Tepid tea-orange, fizzy white head died within 1 second. Off-spiced plastic celery, playdoh sweetness overwhelms, no blueberry or cinnamon in the nose. Front is heavy plastic, acetic, cinnamon is present through mid, huge husky profile, earthy and rooty warmth, tons of acetic sourness fighting some rooty sweetness, watery and full bodied mess, the acetic and spice combo is a Tim Burton take on dessert.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pour is faintly hazed pure orange with no head. Nose has a ton of plastic, very off aromas, odd spice, def not cinnamon. No blueberry in the nose whatsoever, tons of acetic. Taste is root beer that burns, faint cinnamon, plastic, sweet sugars and citric acid, high carb, heavier body. Extremely sour and burning around the outside of the mouth.

bottleshare thanks to Beechner224. Nose is very tart with a hint of cinnamon. Taste is puckering. Cinnamon comes through in the flavor. Light fruitiness. Much pucker as it warms.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at my pool. Pours a deep orange, almost amber. Aroma is tart, spicey, sharp. Taste is sour, tart, spicey, and again sharp. More lip puckering than the other variants. Think the cinamon gives it a spicey character. I find myself licking my lips a lot. Damn tasty. Think this is my favorite so far.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle sample from "hannont". Colour...cloudy, light amber with a pinky hue. Nose...highly acetic with sweet spicy notes, esp. cinnamon. Palate...massively puckery with loads tart orchard fruits, lemon zest and underripe blueberries. The pucker affect fades at the back of the palate but a spicy blueberry pie flavour lingers.

750ml bottle pours cloudy pink peach color with small fading head. Nose is tart fruit funk, berry, cinnamon, spice, a little bit of band-aid. Taste is acidic sour fruit, blueberry, cinnamon, graham cracker. Finish is acidic lacto sour with long lingering blueberry pie and subtle spice. Nice stuff.

Bottle @ His Great Return Tasting. Cheers to Leighton for providing this! Hazy deep gold pour with a small white head. Big unwashed rhubarb, notes of strawberry. A bit of sea salt and dirty root vegetables. Earthy spiced flavors. Canned plums and a bit of tart strawberry. Mild acid on the finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Decent.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of a recent Tampa Tasting. Pours a hazy purple color with an ephemeral white head. Nose is big tart berries, spice, yeast, and berry flesh. Flavor is similar with yeast, berry, berry flesh, and massive tartness. Light to medium in body and a nice berliner overall.
