4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Spuyten Duyvil. Hazy golden pour. The nose is bright and funky. Lots of earthy, cheesy funk. A kiss of light yeasty phenolics and lots of bright fruit as well. Peach and apricot sourness mixed with a lot of tropical bretty spice. Light tropical pineapple. Very fruity tasting. Really, damn tasty.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Spuyten Duyvil. Musky old cellar, cheese, dung, nice lactic sourness in the aroma. Slight carbonation. Good graininess in the flavor up front, with a nicely sour finish. White grape, white bread, full bodied, with a slightly watery but appropriate finish. Excellent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Spuyten Duyvil: golden fading head. Tart aroma, slightly acetone like with an old sock must. Slick acidic body. Peanut brittle undertones, acetone notes and a citric acidity. Not bad, could be a bit less solventy.
