2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I have had limited experience with this brewer, always assuming they were yet another over-hyped, over-priced brewery for me to scroll past - however, since their beers have been on sale at a store I frequent, I have decided to try a couple more recently - the saison was pretty meh - this beer, however, is downright awful, so I guess my initial opinion is confirmed - the beer looks okay - hazy amber, with a fluffy, well-sustained head - nose is syrupy sweet, slightly boozy, with notes of glazed doughnut, yeastiness, baby food, moldy fruit - poorly attenuated - very sweet flavor - thick, sludgy yeast mouthfeel - chalk, moldy peaches, cheese rind - bubblegum and grain husks - clumsy, with mildewy basement character throughout - finish is incredibly hot and boozy for something that is supposedly 7% (it actually burns) - pretty terrible - looks like I’m done with this brewery.

Mostly clear dark gold with a thin white foamy cap. Nose is estery with dusty apricot and crafty stinky cheese. Flavor is wonderful with notes of coriander and apricot, a little dusty Belgian yeast, and a clean off-dry light fruity finish, of a Belgian variety. Very smooth and delightful.

Draft at railroad street. Pours clear copper with a small white head that dissipates quickly to a film. The aroma is fairly funky, peppery, yeasty. The taste is dry, sweet, caramel, fruitiness kicks in late, a bit funky.

Sample from 75 cl. bottle. Hazy, golden-amber with a small, white head. Sweet aroma with fruits, caramel malts, yeasts - almost hefeweizen-like with banana and spices. Taste is light sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture. Finishes dry and herbal with fruits. Unfortunately, no sign of the bretts.

Bottle, 02/03/2014. Pours dark orange amber, medium white head rests to a nice haze on the surface, medium ring of lacing, sparkling. Aroma is sweet toasted cereal grains, canned pear, apple, light brett, fruity hops. Taste of bread, fruity Belgian yeast, bananas, generic white fruits, mild spices and hop bitterness, touch of brett. Medium body. Fairly straightforward Belgian style ale, alright.

Flaske, 75 cl, hos Yespr. Næsten klar gylden med en fin hvid skum-film. Ikke den store aroma. Lidt brød. Malt. Gær. Folder sig mere ud i smagen med klassiske noter af svovl, brød og belgisk gær. En meget mild syrlig undertone. Bretten har ikke foldet sig ud endnu. Florale noter.
