3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours cloudy amber / brown that looks muddy with a small off-white head. The aroma has murky herbal traits, hints of figs, Belgian yeast, strange sweetness and smooth minerals. Medium smooth body with a good amount of subdued carbonation. The taste has lots of herbal and mineral traits, mild dry figginess, earthy murky yeastiness, raisins and dates. Comes across almost like a Belgian old ale. The finish has a bit of spice and more fruitiness. Interesting beer.

Bottle - 750mL corked and capped. Slightly clouded copper body with a short, foamy beige head. Unique aroma with herbal notes, figs, soft hops and yeast notes. Taste is slightly tart with fig notes, hints of berries, herbal notes, bitter hops, earth notes and yeast. Body is medium with a strong, lively carbonation. Ends with more fig, berries, tart fruit, earthy notes, herbal flavors, and Belgian yeast. Different beer than expected.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle… Clear, dirty orange ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. The complex aroma furnishes date, fig, honey, aged floral hops, cherry and a small splash of maple syrup. Full-bodied with a lightly creamy/mildly oily mouthfeel and dancing carbonation. The flavor presents a mélange of dark fruits and cherries – a touch tangy as well. Short, fairly crisp, moderately dry finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Murky copper color with a huge, khaki head. Herbal, subtle dried dark fruits, subtle white pepper and caramel/rum. Carbonation helps to lighten the body, but the finish is slanted bit towards the malt. Taste is somewhat malty and caramelized sugary with a strong herbal, peppery, and fig/date jam aspect. I would say the base beer would be classified as a BdG and the spice is, well unique, as I would expect from the brewer. There is a touch of tartness in the finish too.
