2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ GT’s Cat Cabana. Thanks, Richard. Orange amber pour with a white head. Smell is quite nice. Lemon, orange zest, peach, and tart berry. A bit of oak and wine, as well. The flavor, is a totally different story. Plastic, sawdust, and lemon juice. Eek. Astringent, tannic feeling on the tongue. Salt/brine, green apple, and grass. Not a fan.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma almost smells like an unblended lambic, with funk, leather, and tart citrus. Flavour isn’t as lambic-like, with citrus skins, light leather and stale cardboardy notes. Cohesive and well-balanced - certainly unique flavours. Interesting, though not terrible intriguing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Sour lemon and a bit of funk. Hazy orange with a frothy white head. Muddled sour notes with a woody background. This was my least favorite and I don’t think age would help. I think the Flanders Red is the culprit.

Holy hell. I mean holy fuck. Yeah, this one is the shit. Cloudy yellow/gold with a nice white head. Flavors are complex and dance all over the tongue. White wine, leather, lemons, plain yogurt, earthy spice, barnyard. I mean damn...this is a work of art.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle… RBSG 2014… This beer doesn’t cheat death. It wins fair and square!… Pours cloudy and amber with a mid-sized, creamy, white head that doesn’t give up. It’s in it for the long haul. The aroma furnishes lots of funk and loads of wood along with some herbal notes. Full-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and airy carbonation. The flavor is a collection of sour, funky, woody, fruity and vinous notes – pear, pluot, apricot and white wine. Tons of wet wood in the tart, tangy, funky finish. World class beer from a world class brewery in a world class city!
