4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2014 Bottle. Surprisingly drinkable considering the slightly boozy aroma. Herbal, taste is dry, minerals. Rubbish rating after quite a few drinks. Rerate: 14/11/14 aroma is tripel sweet and fruity, strawberries and graininess. Taste is good, pear, bit of citrus, sweet, slightly medicinal. Good stuff. Nice body, somewhere between a tripel and a saison. Not of tropical fruit later on. Nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Full 37,5cl sample. The aroma has tropical fruits, hint of pepper, lemon, bit earthy yeast tones. Bit hazy, golden coloured beer with a nice, big, white head. The cork itself was in a bit of a hurry and got out with bang. Beer stayed nicely inside the bottle. The taste is very refreshing, light bitter, has citrus, some grain, earthy yeast tones and finishes quite dry. Carbonation is medium-high. Light-medium bodied beer. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Hitting the very end of a keg (took 4 pours to fill a tulip.) Cloudy blonde pour with an eggy meringue head. Juicy wheat flavors. Clementine marmalade on light toast. Challah. Creamy body. Some funk in the mix but it is not unpleasant. Suspect that this pour is not typical, and though not an otherwise extraordinary brew, but there is a strong sense of workmanship. Need to try again.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear and bright gold body with a large frothy white head. The cork just about damn near exploded out of the bottle on this one, as soon as I twisted the cage it came flying out. Be careful. The nose is rather nice, some interesting spicy and almost floral notes, with some light yeastiness and pale malt. The flavor is delicate and lightly spicy with some interesting yeast influence. I like the slight earthiness that comes out on the finish. Light bodied with fizzy frothy carbonation. Pretty nice beer, subtle, yet with plenty of complexity.
