2.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Lightly opaque with a week head and a copper, burnt sienna colour.
Subtle spicy smell mixed with citrics and wholesome breadiness.
Lightly sweet and well balanced with fruitiness and spiciness... which unfortunately deteriorates into a very nasty aftertaste which is hard to find but is truely terrible. Like burnt soep or something. Very disappointing - very promising beer otherwise. I’m hoping it was a bad bottle and I will rerate it as soon as I can find it again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle at home: Hazy orange with an amber center. Yellowed tall and creamy head sits nicely on top. Turns to a rocky mountainscape after a while. Big malt and husky fresh grain aroma. Touch of grassiness. A nice "burnt earth" or wood-fired clay pot in the background. At first it is hidden by the grain and wildflower bouquet but as that diisapates the fired clay comes out. Sweet yellow cake starts to build up as well, but raw grain, malt, and wild flowers dominate. Grain husk, wheat, and some sort of wild grass come out first upon tasting. Alcohol note comes in the middle but never reaches the nose. Some oiliness in the middle too. Yeast, alcohol, yellow cake, grass and wheat take you on a long journey before leaving you with wheat, hay and a touch of wet newspaper. CO2 is high enough to keep the slickness of the beer from becoming oppressive. Very interesting but falls apart at the end a bit.

33 cl bottle. Pours muddy, pale amber with a small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has pepper, some cardboard, coriander and herbs. Fine mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Flavour is very flowery, tulips and roses. Light herbal touch as well.

DO NOT WANT!
This beer is utterly disgusting. Unclear if the ghastly flavor is due to a bad batch or if the beer just, well, sucks. Either way, it’s really gross.
