3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy golden orange with a long lasting bubbly white head. Aroma is very tart, with apple, lemon, orange, a bit of pepper, and what I believe a touch of something darker like plum. Taste isn’t quite as sour as some in this style. This is a letdown after the delicious aroma. Lemon and apple are the main flavors. Mild pepper included. Lots of bubblegum taste here as well. Mouthful is very dry without much of an aftertaste. Carbonation is very fizzy like champagne. Pretty good overall. However, I am a little disappointed since I am a big fan of this style.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
No gusher w/ this bottle. I can’t find a date on it. First glass pours clear and sparkling orange with half liquid and half rocky head. Aromas of lemon and ginger pour from the glass. Very spritzy on the tongue. Flavors of more citrus, spice and even pineapple. Musky barnyard, if you take a big swig with your nose in the glass. A little dirty metal for the finish. Quite tasty, but not cohesive enough for a top grade.

Big explosion in the bottle, strong sour smell. Big beige head, cloudy caramel color. Flat English flavor, balanced but pretty lame,

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a darker gold with a massive white head, good retention/lace. Aroma of old piney hops, citrus, dust, soap. Taste is quite soapy, dusty, pine hop bitterness, light caramel. Palate is slick, sharp carbonation, bitter finish. Definitely a weird one.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a murky golden with massive head. Literally had to wait 2 hours to pour a solid glass. Aromas of Belgian yeast, floral, sour, funky basement aromas, sour fruit and Brett. Initial flavor is sweet and floral then heads into a more sour note finishing with a back of the tongue bitterness. Spicy hops, fruity, yeast and Belgian-esque. It’s hard to put a finger on all the flavors. Solid beer. Definitely different and definitely worth a try.
