3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at The Bruery. Muddy burnt orange pour. Medium to weak foam. Nose is hefty sage and white pepper. Bright and herbal. Taste is bright lemon and lime, not sticky, fairy dry and dusty with bitter rind and heavy coriander. Good, refreshing despite appearance. Bright herbs abound. Shockingly different than expected.

Growler - Flowery hops, with some pine and slight alcohol. Clear dark amber with a decent brown head. Earthy hops , nutty, spice and amber malts. A little heat in the end. Not bad smells better than it tasted, but still good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from a trade that I drank with Max and Andy prior to our Montreal and VT trip. Pours a lightly hazed amber red with a medium to large white beige head. Some slight age on it, but that’s my fault. Malt, toast. I don’t really get the oak or much else. Medium bodied, toast, malt. Easy drinking but really not a lot going on.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Seabass going away party, Jan15th ’11. Courtesy of Hopscotch.
Couleur cuivre, épaisse beige.
Houblonnée et citron, note de pamplemousse, fine note de vanille et de bois. Légèrement fruitée.
Le goût de tonneau est un peu en retrait et laisse aussi une bonne place pour le malt et caramel pour se faire noter parmi cette bière qui penche un peu plus sur le houblon.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pours with a clear amber body with an off-white head that lasts and leaves good lacing. The aroma is great with notes of honey, dry grain, vanilla, rye, tannins, subtle fruit notes and a decent amount of hoppiness. Flavors are fruity, grainy, dry, and bitter. Some raspberry preserve, oak and tea. A well done beer. Lively bubbles and dry.
