3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer pours a dark reddish orange color with a small, rapidly fading off-white head. The aroma isn’t terribly strong yet blends caramel and toasted malts with a hint of earthy hops and grains, and the taste is an interesting blend of mild sourness, slight bitterness, and slight umami. The aftertaste is quite grainy with the fullness of the malt bill lingering on the tongue. The palate fuses a soft carbonation that has a bite, medium body, and slick texture.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice Amber color. Caramel and dark fruit in the aroma. Taste is slightly grainy and sour with a bit more caramel nastiness. Not super light like I might of thought. Interesting, but not earth shattering.

On tap at Tap and Mallet. My experiecnce doesn’t seem to match reviews I am reading. Orange and clear. Very fruity in the nose. Extremely bland. Not much in hoppiness but then I had it after an IS with chilis.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber color with a small head and wispy lacing. Aroma of fruit, bit of caramel and herbal. Taste of fruit, bit of caramel and spice. Sharp bitterness that lingers. Moderate body, with slight malty feel. Interesting beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice head with minor, splotchy lacing. Smells toasty and toffee to start, with some acid. Taste follows suit. Boozy finish; caramel sugar. I didn’t know what style this was when I had it at first; no farmhouse funk or anything sour to make me think it was a Bière de Garde. Good beer, at any rate; had no problem finishing it.

beautiful amber colored lightly hazed ale. not terribly heady with a nice aroma reminiscent of a catholic church after benediction and the use of incense. very smooth initially with a med to heavy bitterness down the tongue to the finish. med light mouthfeel.
