2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Murky amber-ish colored pour. Small white head. Some lacing left behind. An off smell reminiscent of infected homebrew, with some buttery caramel. Some hop aroma in there as well. Taste is much better than the aroma, but the buttery smell comes through in the mouth as well. A bit carbonic and cloying. Not overly bad.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle - pours all over my desk (I shouldn’t have let it sit out on my desk for 30 minutes before opening it - doh). Pours unblended orange with just off-white head and great lacing. Nose is yeast, straw and hay. Flavor adds malt qualities. Sweet and some of the bitterness of unripe fruit. light to medium body and moderately carbonated, though the spill suggests otherwise. Quite tasty and the style is growing on me. Burpy (Filet Mignon with buttery mushroom caps).
