1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle from boboski. Pour was hazy (not murky) orange, tons of little bubbles so slowly rising in the body around the edges. Lacing was ok, but I didnít drink enough to really tell (read on). After smelling, band-aids and lysol style cleaners, not too impressive. Flavor was perhaps one off the worst beers Iíve had, although I tried and tried to be patient with it, trying sips at all sorts of temperatures short of mulling it! Band-aids, iodine, bandages, lysol (the original, none of that pine stuff), I suppose some caramel and faint fruitiness, and almost a ginger-like spicing. My fellow taster also couldnít get past it, ended up in the darin. Sorry, Jason, to have not liked this, but it was still appreciated, a fun experience, worked and worked at it every which way - and memorable (one of the cool apsects of beer).

2004 - The beer was strong, 12.4%, but it, again, tasted like it was pure alcohol. Rubbing alcohol. Never drink a Real Ale! Worst Barelywine I've had yet! Give a an Old Nick's over this anyday!

Bad case of Brett infection. cool stored three months (07 version) horseblanket nose, roughage spoiled flavor, but lacked acidic sourness associated with pleasent Belgian Flanders styles. hops grassy & muted. beware of this vintage.
