2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a deep amber body, medium off-white head. Nose is earth, wet leaves, grains, hints of dusty cellar. Taste is oxidized grassy tones, nuts, earth, wet leaves. Astringent bitter finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Strange, and definitely too old (BB date expired June 2013).

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 09.10.2013, 0,75l bottle sampled @ BBGTC tasting:
Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly roasted (?!) malts, nuts, old leafs, hay, caramel, grass. Taste is slightly dry and harsh watery, roasted grain, cardboard, harsh grass, weeds, nuts, hay. Longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Boring!

Le plus près d’un punch aux fruits possible, hyper aromatique mais absolument aucune amertume. Vraiment unique bestiole.

Ok but it’s travelled a ways to get here. So mustly just malt and bitterness left over from the hops. Orange pour with great head and lacing. Finishes with light bitterness. Soft carbonation. On tap in impromptu sampler served up by Chris at Ebenezer Kezar’s.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle 75cl. Smells and tastes like soap. But pretty good looking beer. Went down the drain. I hope something went wrong in the brewery and this is not he actual taste and aroma.
