2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at R&H NY
Aroma rather muted for style with alcohol sowing trough, bitterness with malts.6-
Appearance hazed amber-gold with fine carbonation. Fine mid – light top, decent lace. 3+
Flavor and Palate : Full bodied. Malty body covered in fruity0leafy bitterness, tartness on walls. Mid is lip-smacking brutal bitterness. Finish reminds me of bitter vodka from Poland. Mellower with time with herbal-bitter finish. Still quiet unbalanced.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, shared with Tim & Jacob. Hazy orange, white head. Nose is floral, tea-like, medium caramel, some astringency. Flavor is sweet malt/caramel, strange astringent bitterness, catty. Overly bitter/jagged with a huge malt backbone. Manages to be too bitter & cloying at the same time.

Wow, who would have thought? Another West Coast hop-bomb that delivers nothing but hops with no malt backbone to even things out.

Pours a hazy straw color with a short lived 2 finger head. Looks more like a wheat beer than anything. Aroma and taste are pretty close. The previously mentioned faint grape soda , herbal,slightly earthy ,dryish slightly bitter finish. Not diggin this one.
Where are the juicy hops hints of pine and thirst quenching finish? $7 down the drain. Not literally but will steer clear of this one. Again this brewer is one I just don’t "get" all the hype about.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours to a strange colored hazy yellow body with a very foamy (big bubbles) white head. The aroma is grassy candied pineapple and orange juice. The taste is extremely bitter grass and some sort of doughy grain. There’s a quite nasty bitter aftertaste that lingers and lingers. This beer is extremely unbalanced and hugely overrated. BLAH!

Gedronken in Brussel in Moeder Lambic. De kleur is helder geel tot lichtgroen. Het rook echt naar zweet en citroen. Verder vond ik erg vies, niet te beschrijven.

(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Clear yellow with a soapy white head. Bitter and slightly sour aroma with dry hope and a mild sweetness. Dry and bitter middle with an unpleasant bitter and plasticy malt taste. Dry and lingering finish. Not a fan.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy straw yellow with lots of tan and white chunks floating about. Looks like somebody’s pond water experiment. The chunks stay suspended in the beer throughout and never settle. The aroma thankfully is pleasant despite this beer’s disturbing appearance. There is ample grapefruit with a bit of spiciness to it along with some alcohol vapors. The flavor begins with some malt, but that is quickly overrun by grapefruit pith hops bitterness that is quite assertive and lingers annoyingly on the palate. That combined with some jet-fuel heat from the alcohol make this beer generally an unpleasant experience. Avoid.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
draft. cloudy golden wheat body, small bubbled white head. musty cheese and BO nose, honey-tinged, green, raw and vegetal (onion, garlic, canned tomato sauce). similar flavor: musty, cheesy, stinky, almost putrid, with garlic, butter and onion thrown in for good measure. surprisingly soft texture, low sweetness, high bitterness, medium-high acid. but.... disgusting.
