3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
tap at max’s. Hazy tan-amber, thinnest white ring. Nose is Brett b heavy, lots of cherry, but brown sugar, iron, and light balsamic keep it balanced. Flavor shows more grain and iron at the front, mid has light tea, chestnut, and finishes with paper and more Brett b. Bit full for the fizzy carbonation and soft flavor profile, but balanced and so bright as a result.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks avrashi. Murky amber, with ring. Honey, orange, ginger and candy aroma, along with a little rye, sweet, then black pepper, honey, a little anise taste. Full body, a little anise aftertaste and spicy finish. Whimsical and tasty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Robe ambrée, mousse peu persitante. Nez assez complexe sur le caramel, les épices, les fruits confits, une touche de gingembre. Bouche à l’attaque épicée, beaucoup de rondeur, un coté douceureux et caramélisé et une finale ample. Une bière puissante et complexe, qui pourrait évoluer.

green old bottle .. .dust, yeast, and pharmacy .. . light feel and a squeaky finish, the 2002 vintage shows quite a bit .. . . a scone is just a really sad doughnut.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A 2002(!) bottling. Perhaps past its prime but certainly held up very well.
Rich complex aroma and flavor with figs, raisins and spices.
The flavors are nicely balanced and blended.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. 1995 vintage. Moldy looking under cap and cork. Poured a golden color with an averaged sized head. All I can say, is this one aged nicely and ’different’. Nice tart sourness ... fruity, apples, and citrus.
