4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a rich golden color with a two finger sticky foam. Aromas are nice and complex with earthy orchard fruits, peppery spice and a good dose of barnyard funk. The palate is tasty refreshing and beautifully balanced. Nice layers of flavors ranging from citrusy tart lime and funky barnyard earth with hints of peppery spice and round fruit. Touch of grassy hops and a clean dry bitter finish. I took care of this bottle quickly and need more !

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Rating #9,800) Bottle... Pours hazy and golden with a huge, frothy, white head. Good retention. The nose is a mélange of citric acid, bread and a very light, farmhouse yeast-driven, spicy phenol. Medium to full-bodied with spritzy carbonation. The flavor is bready and a hint acidic with a rumor of clove. Crisp, refreshing, dry finish. Bottle courtesy of Rosebud butternuts!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Beermoth, Manchester. Slow gusher. Fight it into a glass and it’s hazy, pale gold. Thin, messy, white head. Sweet, creamy, bready, lightly funky nose. Soft mineral. Soft spice. Some grassy hop. Taste is dry, first off, then turns sugary sweet. Palate is a tad flabby. A bit greasy, too. Finishes a bit mushy sweet. Dry close.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Foam started to gush as soon as i opened the beer, and an ordinary pour resulted in a huge head. Cloudy orange color, and tons of carbonation. Lots of brett, which dominates the flavor and aroma making this very dry. Some grassy flavor, dry hops, but I didn’t pick up saaz specifically. Some barnyard quality; and the yeast is prominent.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Surprise! It’s a bit of a gusher. Dirty dark yellow with good white foamy head. Dusty malt and light Brett scent. Soft foamy palate. Bit of peppery kick at the end with a pinch of fruit. A bit heavy handed without the magic I expect from best of style. A bit mellony with pepper notes.
