3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE: June 19, 2019... enjoying this in a Chimay goblet at halftime of the most important game I’ve witnessed in my thirty-nine years--Game Seven between Cleveland and Golden State (Cavs down seven)... pours a half-inch head, foamy and resilient... dense, dark amber body shows whirling spirals of effervescence... one whiff and WOW--sour apple! citric elements include grapefruit, lemon, and pleasant spices--prune too... strong phenol tinges the taste with alcohol... toasted bread malts make a lasting impression.... a solid, balanced finish, with the teeth whistle in a breeze of hops... leaves a spicy grapefruit and apple aftertaste... sneaky smooth and easy front to back... VERY sour, with a tart aroma that is slightly off-putting... this is a complex, challenging beer--not unlike this game, which plays a tug of war with my heart and mind--with the sour apple mingling with sugary, candied elements to produce a strong punch to the throat... recommended? on a dare, yes... as a kick-back-and-drink beer? not so much...a nice beer to ponder slowly...

Bottle: Poured a bright yellow color ale with a nice medium size foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of residual sugar notes with some fruity and candy-like ester with some Belgian malt. Taste is also dominated by sugary notes with some candy-like ester with some Belgian malt notes. Body is full for style with medium carbonation and no alcohol note really apparent. Enjoyable but a bit sweeter then I would like.

Getting my Missouri heritage fix today. I’d have liked to see a better beer from these guys for something titled grand cru but then that is often the case with breweries. A case of trying too hard perhaps. Pours blonde with good head and lacing. Light florals and a hint of citrus. Light tangy sweet finish. Tap at scion.
