3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
BOTTLE 33 CL as Weissbier Bock. Cloudy yellow, creamy white head. Aroma of grassy hops and peppers, lemon zest, pear and pine-apple. Some vegetable notes of sun-dried tomatoes. After a while, the tomatoes go away and the clove gets bigger. The taste is strong and juicy, with the flavour following the aroma (including the tomatoes) The finish is grassy bitter with a mild crisp astringency. Quiet nice, even if slightly flawed - 3,4/5.

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
11.2 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a murky amber color. The head is a one finger white shade. Retention is just okay, but it has a nice texture and a bit more lacing left than Iíd expect from a weizen.
S: OH GOD WHAT IS THIS. It smells like shit - Iím not being cute, it really does smell like a combination of fertilizer, bile, cardboard, and ammonia. I know this isnít a fresh bottle, but cripes on a stick. Way, way, WAY too oxidized: the screw top and the dinged bottle cap should have warned me...
T: The fecal qualities arenít here, but who cares...this is a total cardboard bomb. On the finish, some sugary qualities make themselves known along side some earthen notes. A shame, the oxidation has killed it.
M: Undercarbonated to hell and back. While it helps give it a pleasant creaminess, it makes it a syrupy mess on the palate. Because it finishes half-acceptably, itís not entirely undrinkable! Great...
O: Bad, plain and simple. Letís be fair, though, there are wisps of a good hefeweizen here - but a lot of this could have been prevented had the brewer not used a screw cap. Itís always fun to try these old-ass beers that arenít meant to be aged regardless.
