3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Pothole in Tallinn (€ 3,20), July 2014. Pours a very pale, hazy amber with a huge, frothy white top. Nose is yeasty-malty. Doughy and spicy (coriander) characters most noticeable at first, then more sweeter and fruitier aspects come to the fore. The fruitiness is not so straightforward, more like warm cinnamon-covered apple cake, or when it’s warmer, some fruits just about to rot. A hint of alcohol also detectable. Taste is similarily malty and yeasty: it’s sweet and sour, biscuity and fruity (as in compote, not fresh fruits). Very smooth palate, soft mouthfeel with low to medium carbonation. Refreshing despite the high 8 % ABV. Dry, grainy (somewhat bitterish even?) finish with a zing of alcohol there too. P.S. What’s with the label? - a crab biting the toe of a ’caveman’ on a beach covered in bottles...

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Mooi, licht oranje bier, en goed troebel door de afwezigheid van de filtratie. Fris, zurig aroma van citrusvruchten. Dit gaat ook lekker door in de smaak, die goed in balans is met de hop bitterheid. De nasmaak is zoals de smaak, en blijft lekker subtiel hangen. Lekker.
Nice, slightly orange beer, and quite cloudy because of the absence of filtration. A nice, somewhat sour aroma of citrus fruits. This moves on into the taste, which is nicely in balance with the hop bitterness. The aftertaste is just like the taste, and remains in the mouth in a subtile way. Nice beer!

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a honey color with nice foam head. Low on carbonation. Slightly funky smell, pickles, ginger, seaweed, sweaty gym socks... Taste starts with a medium sour, little grain and malt taste, nicely rounded, little sweetness, and creamy. This is a good triple. Aftertaste: nothing lingers, you end up with the creaminess of the beer at the back of the tongue, really enjoyable. The beer loses taste after subsequent sips. Also, the smell is somewhat of a dealbreaker later on when you have to put your nose into the glass to drink the last 25%. Final nitpick: maybe some more carbonation?
