Weird nutty aroma, with eggs there too. Cloudy copper/gold. Sweet start, slightly tart & citric. Nice, though strange

Bottled - St Albans Beer Festival. A grassy spicy aroma to this hazy orange beer. A bit of spice, disinfectant and Belgian complexity in the taste but I didn’t get any fruit. Not bad though

Bottle. Quite, peppery, and acidic (sloe berries??), quite yeasty, with some citrus tang in the finish, tastes very Belgian.

Beer #26 at Chelmsford beer Festival, with Duff. You’ll have to excuse me but, by this stage of the evening my notes are becoming a little difficult to decipher. All I could really pick out was "Curious sweet fruit aroma and flavour. A bit of yeasty sourness. Interesting". Time to go, but not before picking up a couple of bottles to drink on the train back to London. Bottled.

Golden color. Malt aroma, dry. Some malt flavor, a bit sour, thin at the end, short. Probably too old. Thanks Joris for this bottle.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Strong citrus and berries aroma. Spontaneous ejeculation, hazy, golden/pinkish color, large white head, good lace. Sour, strong hibiscus, light bitter, sandy, dry. Experiment by brewery succeeded, patient died however. Yuck.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
quite possibly the worste beer I have ever tasted. I did manage to drink the whole bottle without pouring it out. The color had an ever so faint pink hue leaving the beer somewhat brite. There was little to no head retention. The aroma was simular to a babies diaper, phenolic as all could be. The flavor was predominate of phenolic, band aid/listerine with a hint of berries. Absolutely foul. The sour tartness was the only part that made this beer palatable. The finish was clean and dry which left me forgeting how much I disliked the last sip before trying again and again until it was finally gone.

Yeasty berryaroma. Light orange color, hazy. Berry flavor with orange. An acidic yeastiness comes up after a short while. Some fruity sweetness. Just a hint of caramel. The flavor is a relief after the horrible aroma.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
cloudy brown-amber colour, the initial giant foam leaves a fine regular head, aroma of blackcurrant and dry cherries, vinous, very sweet, lot of carbonation, touch of sourness, soda-like mouthfeel, slightly tart, long dry fruity finish - very original but quite chaotic and I'm not sure what I should think of it
