2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft @ monkey paw. Hazed bronze, thin sheet of white. Smells of old fruit, I guess. Flavors are heavily yeasty, belgian in character, phleghmy in the throat, somewhat citrusy with a large dose of clove as well. Thick, heavy and syrupy body coupled with a heavy, muddled, gross yeast profile combine into something a kin to a malt liquor with half the water evaporated out of it. I should not have ordered this. This ticking shit is stupid....why the hell should I even attempt to drink stuff like this just to rate it. I hate this shit and I hate ratebeer.

Pours a golden orange. Spicy notes hit the palate first followed by some orange/citrus notes. fairly mild and not over the top. No zucchini taste for me. Also seems lighter than 8.5% Part of Ultimate Flight Night at 38 Degrees.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(on draught at the Provisions Store). Pours mostly clear golden with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet with lemon, belgian yeast and some vegetal notes? Taste is sweet with a bit of a tart twang. Getting some fennel. Full bodied with a creamy texture. The mouthfeel shows the cedar which is similar to Loakal Red in that respect. Pretty nice and not as crazy tasting as it sounds.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ the brewery.
Light orange with a small amount of white head. Aromas of lemon, zuccihini bread, and herbs. This is a very unique beer, not sure i’ve had anything like it before. Quite sweet with, flavors of zucchini, spices, caramel malt and just a bit of cedar coming through. ABV is well hidden but I couldn’t drink more than one of these due to the sweetness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A - Served a cloudy golden orange color wit ha finger of frothy white head. The head faded down slowly leaving behind lots of lace.
S - Aroma is a mix of Belgian yeasts with some farmhouse smells, with some spices, earthiness, and vegetable aromas.
T - Starts off with some vegetable and earthy flavors with a bit of Belgian yeasts and caramel. Through the middle, some wood comes through with some lemon and stronger yeast flavors with some clove and banana. The finish is a mix of yeast and spices with some more vegetable flavor.
M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a bit of sharpness on the tongue.
D - Very drinkable. Interesting mix of flavors but comes together nicely, especially the vegetable flavors.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Taster at Bruery Provisions. Interesting brew to say the least. Had some vegetal aroma with a hint of sweetness and a common Bruery yeast presence. Just ok in my opinion.
