3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2014-09-26. Hazy dark pastel yellow body with a small white head. 3+ Aroma is pretty smokey, lightly woody. Flavour is lightly smokey up front, moderately fruity middle is quite pleasant leading to mild bitterness. 7+ Average bodied palate, soft carbonation. 3+ Surprisingly nice considering I’m not big on smokey flavours. The fruit grows as you go, to it’s benefit. Better than I have scored it but it is not for me. Bottle shared by Radek

Pours a dull golden yellow from the 22 oz bottle. Not much head, faint bubbles. Earthy, slight woody, faint smoke. Some real faint sweetness is present too. Spices and smoke in the taste. Super drinkable. Great summer beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
murky lemon, thin white ring. Musty, incredibly manure nose, tons of dusty stable and hay. Heavy brett front, thick and dusty with low sulfur, heavy dust with earthy wheat bitterness through finish. Sticky, full. One note for sure, but stunned this wasn’t a drain pour.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very odd smokey feel to this. May be my first Grodziski. Some light Belgian floral here. Some sweetened malt, finishes smokey with light sourness. Smoke dominates. Bottle thanks to Ajax25g at Epic Sour Tasting.
