3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beige collar on unusual pinkish haze. Thick and yeasty. Nose of who knows what? Earth, apple peel, pepper, banana, definite wood. Ripe and estery. Liquorice in the mouth finishing quite bitterly, but preceded by heady apple-like fruit, and smoky/antiseptic coughsweet honey Iím not too keen on. Tasty-ish but not without flaws.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Courtesy of Keifdog. Pours rosie copper with thin off white head and flat brown floaties. The aroma is moderate with some cherries and apples to go along with raspberry fruity tartness. The taste seems much the same but has a sugar engorged raspberry kool-aid quality to it. Hmm. Behind the kool-aid are muted notes of wheat and possibly malt.

750 ml bottle.
Pours hazy brown, flat with little head.
Aroma, buckwheat and yeasty.
Taste, floral, yeasty, loaded with floating sediments.
Nothing really special here, all we could get was the overbearing presence of the floating chunks.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark copper with a thin head. Sour barnyard and bready malt aroma, reminiscent of a saison. Interesting cookie dough bready malt flavor with a dry buckwheat finish. Flowery clover taste and good complexity make this a very under-rated beer, that is as long as you get a good bottle.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Mes rate: Bottle from Twickenham Beer Fest. Wheaty and malty. Very prickly in the palate. Some chocolate. The buckwheat makes it interesting but this is no show stopper.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Ruby red, with big carbonation and a decent off-white head. Aromas of wood, grain and caramel, with some hedgerow fruit. Flavour was slightly sweet, with some herb and wood flavours - it tasted like a Scottish traditional ale, and a decent dry finish. Enjoyable.
