From notes. At C’est What. Slightly cloudy amber with a tall tan head. Aroma of slight sweet malts and some floral bitterness. Malts balanced by yeasty bread and lingering floral bitterness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375ml bottle, opened Aug 1 based on July 29 best after date. Three fingers of khaki head. Unfiltered brown amber pour. Piney, sprucey, grapefruit hops over a sweet Belgian malt, hint of musty yeast. Taste is well balanced between IPA hops and dubbel malts. Body is dry and effervescent. Overall, a good blend of styles, definitely timed well with the aging.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
July 2, 2012 - on draught at Bar Hop. Slightly hazy bright and refractive copper-amber with a large creamy/frothy slowly diminishing tan head. Some noticeable up-front alcohol in the aroma, sharp fresh grain, somewhat acidic and definitely not sweet at all, redolent of floral bitterness. Taste is a bit boozier, and very sharp and acidic - the floraléherbal bitterness is more in the background, and it really tastes red (rye?). Average body, solid carbonation, quite dry and a grabby somewhat alcoholic long bitter linger - a little big for its abv, but solid.

Tap at The Rhino. Hazy amber-red pour. The aroma is sort of dusty and a little bit fruity. Notes of dried fruit, some pear and plum in addition to some light sticky sweetness. Moderate earthy hoppiness along with a little bit of lift resin. I wouldn't necessarily pick out the hoppiness per se. Earthy and a touch fruity. Dusty finish with a touch of woodiness. It's okay - but it isn't really all that much to write home about.

Cask at Bryden’s for ’Best of the West’, June 21. Pours a hazy deep copper with a spare long-lasting frothy off-white head. Nice lacing. Aroma: I didn’t expect this, it smells great, it’s so fruity and has a good amount of hops. Flavour, again, is fruity and hoppy with a nice bitter finish. Medium bodied. I really enjoyed this.

Hazy amber pour, quick white head. Earthy aroma with overripe banana, dried leaves, rotting crabapples and pine. Medium body. Sweet up front with a lingering biterness. Not quite seasonal but nice balance and unique brew.
