3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Jasonmech77 for sharing this 750. Pours a hazy golden amber with a small bubbly off white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, funky, horse blanket, some citrus, sweet malts, various Belgian spices, sweet tarts and barnyard. Flavor was very yeasty, some funkiness, a good bit of carbonoation for how small the head was. Also picking up citrus, tart apple and muddled spices.

Dusty deep gold. Nose light sour with lemon. Flavor musy, salty, like, uh, drinking liquified fish.

This recieved some very strange reviews that day we opened it. Some said fish and some said drain pour. I really was confusedby this as I could get some spice notes but boy was this a mess.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sort of a fusion of styles, Belgian ale and saison and wit. The aroma has yeast and some barnyard, but it is very light. Flavor is salty, lots of medium sweet malt, and more yeast with light spices as well, especially coriander. A cloudy brown beer with lots of sediment. It isn’t spectacular but overall it works. Others at the tasting got a bad fish aroma but I didn’t pick up any of that.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Sourness, citric, underlying mineral water essence. Thinnish, some carbonation but neither frothy or tingly. Hazy peach/brown color. Not quite all that.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. The most dusty smelling beer I have ever smelt. Smells like a 100 year old book. Taste-cherry cough syrup, metal, dust. Dust, must, and “oldness” dominate.
