1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2013 Second bottle I was better prepared - I chilled it down first, but it still filled two pint glasses with foam, and I lost some more. Now a hazy reddish brown, not just mud, decent head once it calmed down. Sherbet lemon yeast aromas, dough. Sour tasting. Still not good, but not as bad as the first time.
330ml bottle at home. Gusher! Muddy brown. Smells infected. This is basically badly off. I’d pour it away if I wasn’t so mean. Got one more, so will re-rate when I’ve opened that one. 1.2

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from ABS. Uninspired nose, faint, some jammy apricots, orange, grass, spices, and bread. Amber-orange color with lace. Spicy flavor, yeasty, cinnamon, caramel, apricot and apple, nicely bitter and earthy. Good hoppy finish, but quite a mess, spices, malts, weird and confused. Not horrible, but not so good either.
