Surprisingly average in every way. I was expecting something more unique being a wild ale. Decent & certainly drinkable but nothing memorable.

Aromas of soft fruit, apple, pear, yeasty esters, and some farmy funk. Clear dark gold with a fading white head. Off-dry, savory, fruity, and a little funky. Soft, smooth, light-medium bodied.

Iím not going to lie, I was a bit scared to try this but it was great. A little fruity, quite smooth, I like it.

Pours sparkling amber with a thick, creamy white head with good retention. Fruity yeast aromas. Decent yeasty flavor with some citrus and bready notes. Overall a serviceable, if unremarkable, Belgian style ale. As a bearded dude, I at least appreciate the idea.

Hazy deep gold beer, tidy white head. Smooth palate with a trailing minerally crisp bite. Wheaty malt, light malt cream. Light dry citric orange and lemon. Semi dry finish. Comes over as an okay wheat beer.

Sort of boring Belgian style. I was hoping for something more fun. Gold pour. Nose of clove and bread yeast. Taste added some citrus and biscuit. Mouthfeel was lively. Meh.

Bomber. Poured clear, bright golden with a short-lived white head. The aroma picked up white pepper, cloves, and lemon zest over light bready malts and some darker sugars I couldnít quite place.. didnít seem all that cohesive. The flavor found lightly syrupy honey and bready malts at the core, with lemon zest, cloves, and a bit of pepper around.. a few too many residual sugars along with Belgian-y yeast notes on the finish (didnít know John was Belgian). Lighter-bodied with high-ish carbonation on the palate.. a touch cloying at times, but otherwise it flowed smoothly.. creamy carbonation.. not bad.

650 ml bottle. Pours an orange/gold with light head. Aromas of oranges, resin, and a little brett. Flavor is light resin and malt; maybe a bit of spice. Nothing special other than the concept.

Purchased at Liquor Shed with some apprehension.
A hazy medium gold/yellow colour, the foam does itís thing with a good head and good lacing.
The nose, to me, has a lot of citrus and clove, maybe not so much citrus, more of a coriander smell. I get some sweet that reminds me of candi sugar, a hint of something directing me towards the tart but maybe not.
Okay, the taste doesnít live up to the smell. Clove, some coriander, a hint or 2 of pepper, some sweetness that, how do I put this, comes from a low grade candi sugar, if that even exists. The smell was lively and vibrant, tasting leaves a bit to desired for my palate.
This beer does pretty much nothing for my palate. Yeah, I glad I tried it and got this review in but this is definitely a one off.
