3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The Revelation Cat Woodwork Series. Let’s line’m up and knock’m down. The base beer seems a good place to start.
Appearance: Pours a clear, darkened orange body with a tall, unabashed, off-white head.
Smell: Toasted maltiness in the nose with some caramelized sugars traces to it. Pinch of spice. Slight hint of dried apricot. Citrus peel notes, though with more of an orange-like quality for me.
Taste: Moderately sweet, with a taste of toasty, bready malt. Hint of inherent apricot fruitiness. Orangesque hop flavor with a low bitterness and mild hints of late-arriving spice and resinous pine. Drying, lightly citrusy finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel.
Overall: Buy simply one of these Woodwork beers would make about as much sense as buying just the rook bishop from a chess set. You’ll need all the pieces present for this undertaking. Speaking of chess, I’ll make the first move: e4.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Pours slightly hazy, amber with a medium sized off-white head, that’s leaves some fair lacings. Fruity nose and course with a strong suggestion of passionfrui and notes of yeast. Flavour again with citrus, passionfruit and caramel notes. Medium to full bodied, creamy to oily texture and lively carbonation. Ends up nice bitter and with an alcohol touch. An excellent brew, so I can’t wait to try a barrel aged.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle at tasting. a dark gold beer with a large white head. the base beer was quite simple. a good experimental idea in theory, although, i think the wood aged version needed a longer time in the barrel.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Süßlicher Maracuja-Duft mit einer leicht säuerlichen Komponente. Im Antrunk süß und noch recht neutral und sanft. Im Mittelteil dann intensiv aromatisch und nach Maracuja schmeckend. Zu harzigen Tönen kommt dann auch eine sich mehr und mehr verdichtende Bitterkeit, welche im Abgang voll herauskommt. Sanft alkoholisch und trocken abebbend. Sehr gut gelungen. Ein prima Bier.Test vom 10.2.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
base beer bottle next to french and american at dak’s 8/14/10.
hazy. yellowy tinted brownish amber color with a creamy tan head.
the aroma is really malty and full of caramel. the other notes include orange, peach, onion and something vegetal.
the flavor is the same but quite sweet. it does manage to get spicy on the finish as it dries out.
it is full bodied, slick and very alcoholic. 7/4/6/3/15
