Ernest (6749) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2010
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, caramel), lightly hoppy (apricot), with notes of sour/decaying apple/banana skins, bile, alcohol, tea. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium to full body, watery/syrupy texture, fizzy carbonation, moderately alcoholic. As with the Saison Athene and Lectio Divina, somewhat dirty smelling and tasting, a bit reminiscent of reflux and rotting fruit. Not quite horrible, but really crude. Another drain pour from St. Somewhere, sadly.

The aroma is yeasty and a bit funky and tart with citrus, malt, and spice. The appearance is dark cloudy amber with a large head. The taste is like the aroma with a dry finish. The palate is average for the style. Overall this is about average.

I’ve been waiting to try this one, Bob thanks for dropping some off! Floral citrus nose, herbal earthy notes with sweet honey. Pours a reddish amber with a thick white head. Sweet malts upfront with heavy citrus notes, some berry flavors as well, light strawberry. The beer is very floral with a spicy dry finish. Excellent!

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 10, 2010
Bottle, fuck this beer. Pours an amber body with an off white head. Fruit punch and citrus at first whiff but quickly changes to overripe fruit and cherry tones with a modest warming. Vinous apple tones, a fizzy lively apple body. A messy sweet crab apple warming. Just a fucking mess, poured half down the drain.
