3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: An chaotic semi-wild golden ale. Enjoyable mess.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed when about 6 months old.
The look: Cloudy golden blonde body topped by a medium white with medium retention
In long: Strange nose that blends wild (almost funky) yeast, bakery and sour notes of white grapes. Taste is kind of messy. Crisp cookies, dusty, lemon acidity, peppermint, plastic, white sugar, minty hops. Dry dusty finish. With each sips you sweetness, tartness, bitterness, acidity, dryness. More chaotic than complex. Yet another example of a objectively fucked-up beer that I found subjectively entertaining enough to enjoy it and give it a decent score. Named after a greek mythological being cursed to do the same meaningless task day after day after day. The ancestor of cubicle worker.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Floral perfumey nose, a little dusty. Soft fruit underneath maybe. Golden orange pour, big bubbled thin head. Dusty husky up front, tangy lemon, more chewy husky flavors. Not really any cherry per se but there are some fruity undertones. Somewhat quenching bitterness in the finish. An interesting beer.
