Not too impressed by this one. I found the aroma to be off-putting and almost sour, and the flavour starts off nicely, but quickly turns to a numbing bitterness as it hits the back of the tongue. This bitter edge got worse as the beer warmed up. Didn’t get any of the spicy crispness promised by the label, either. Maybe I wasn’t in the mood to appreciate the dryness. At least it has a nice copper colour.

I liked this one. Still has the cheval blanc yeast that i can’t apreciate, however it has enough malty complexity and spices to overcome the yeast flavor.

Copper coloured. Slightly roasty, crystal malt flavour. Dry and drinkable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
By far the best that I tried from this proficient brewery. I admire them for their ballsiness, but his simple brew hit on all cylinders where their other beers seemed to try to hard to stretch themselves into ’specialness’.
