3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours golden yellow with thin head and no lacing. Smell is Belgium yeast, tropical. Taste is banana, Belgium funkyness, stale lemon, finish is a little dry. Weird.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle. Pours a hazy deep gold, with a small off-white head, which lasts reasonably well without leaving much lacing. Sourdough yeast, cloves and cinnamon make up the aroma. Mild lemon hops and sourness up front give way to a very Belgian mix of dough and spices in the mid-palate. These combine with more mild sourness in the finish. This tastes like a fairly regular saison, if not the most exciting one, but its origin is more than a touch disturbing. A little like black pudding, its fine as long as you donít think about it.

Clear golden color, white head. Sweet, a bit phenolic taste. Phenolic aftertaste. Fizzy mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Sweet, phenolic scent.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
650ml bottle. Pours a nice gold with a one inch white that lasts. Taste is of banana, yeast, hops and citrus. Mostly clean aroma. Has a slightly watery body with a slight bitter finish. Reminds me of Leffe Blonde, but not as good.

I wish I would have never been told of the origin of the yeast before testing since it caused me to pre-judge this beer. Smelled bad, and the idea of it coming from a human petri dish was unsettling - shouldnít have been but was. The taste made up for the aroma and I would try it again.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a hazy golden amber colour with a two- to three-finger white foamy head that retained a while then collapsed. Poor lacing as spots. Carbonation very high with medium to large bubbles. Aroma subtly of cloves/spices similar to a wheat beer. Taste with some sweetness but dominated by cloves/spices and no real bitterness - overall mild but pleasant. Light body. Crisp clean finish. Not the usual highly hopped beer expected of Rogue but OK.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
What a creepy idea.
It didnít stop me drinking it though.
Golden amber colour with minimal head, strong Belgian ale aromas of basement, cloves and musty yestiness. It tasted like could be any genuine Belgian Tripel only without the massive flush of alcoholic warmth.
Still a creepy idea and I felt faintly violated after consumption.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Looks kinda nice. Smells dreadful. Adjunct caramel and fake Belgian fruits & spices. Doesn't taste as bad, but man it smells like ass. Why am I drinking this again?

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber. Aroma is full of Belgian yeast aromatics: clove, pepper, banana, barnyard funk, dust, lemon. Pours slightly hazy orange with a medium reducing white head. Taste isnít as impressive as the aroma, but still good. Itís lightly sweet, finishing dry with some slight hoppiness. Body is medium, texture a little watery, carbonation high. Nice beard, err, beer. Puns--yeah, baby!
