1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle, opened to share with my in-laws. Aggressively carbonated gassy head atop a golden amber body. Musty caramel aroma, not a good start. Musty caramel apple flavour. This bottle is off. Boo.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Got this bottle from France (0,75). And I am very surprised. Most tasty beer I tasted in years. Very roasty taste with dried fruits. Malty and long taste. I had this in my mouth for hours.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a dark auburn orange with a large, beige-colored head. Aroma is fruity - peach and apple - light yeast and fermented fruit. A touch of cinnamon or perhaps oven-baked apple? Taste is dry and malty. Spicy, nutty, somewhat fermented fruit. A light tartness on the finish with the nuttiness getting stronger. Pleasant and enjoyable. Imagine would be good with food. Palate is quite light and has too much carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy warm brown with a plume of tan, coarse head that quickly bubbles down. Aroma is pear, light bakers yeast, nutty wood, white grape, odd grain, and pineapple. Light body with low carbonation of moderate coarseness. Flavor reveals strong nuttiness and a hint of funky tartness which may be due to the inclusion of raw grain. A nice brew that is not overstated.
