3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle, sampled after release. pours dark brown with soapy off white head. a spicy and phenolic aroma, lemony hop character. the taste is the issue with this beer as it is extremely over attenuated. I don’t recall having a beer that over attenuated this much (except perhaps lambic), there just isn’t any residual sweetness to carry the rest of the profile. just a watery stripped out feel to it. I know this yeast attenuates like it’s on roids but this is pretty unbelievable. it doesn’t taste bad though.
