Aroma is mint/juniper berries and spicy yeast. The flavor is spices, juniper berries, fruit, Belgian yeast and a mix of sourish and a hint of heat in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: pours with a huge tan head that settles into a very dense layer, the beer is a very hazy brown color, it really does look wild
Aroma: raisin, plum, chocolate, roasted grain, molasses
Taste: apricot is pretty evident, has a almost chocolate base to it, not much of an aftertaste, very slight tart
Palate: leaves mouth wet, lively carbonation, lighter mouthfeel
Overall: I think this is pretty good, it's got a nice complexity in the taste and the aroma, it's subtle but complex

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Mild cherry aroma. Cloudy rust, thin head. Tart currant initially, wood and cardamom at midpalate, milk chocolate and nougat finish. Light and tannic, virtually no carbonation. Wonderful subtleties, balance, and complexity. Distinct transitions. Dynamic. Paired well with my rare roast beef sandwich.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ Van Moll Brewpub. Nice amber reddish color, medium sized off-white to beige head. Smells quite herbal. Tastes sourish, lightly herbs or spices, a bit ’sharp’. Decent body and carbonation. Not bad but not really my thing.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle @ Sergio’s / Louisville KY --- Nearly clear amber brown with a solid tan head, a few blobs of lace. Taste is a little malt and a lot of herb that moves effortlessly through the palate to a finish that is more herb than hop. A unique brew, no doubt, just not one that I enjoyed.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Oddbins, Blackheath. Honey coloured pour with a beige head. Quite a lively number. Lots of sweet spice aroma in there, splash of ginger and cinnamon with an added compliment of honey. Sweet medicinal flavours- tastes like something that could ease a cold. Not too bad.

The ordeal of drinking this atrocity I can only liken to giving birth to a flaming turd through my japs eye. A real pain. Spolit my day no end. Avoid like the plague. If I could liken this beer to a celebrity paedophile, it would most certainly be Ian Watkins from Lostprophets.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance - dark amber with a nice generous head.
Nose - dominated by the Brett but with just a hint of the apricots, you have to look for it, mind.
Taste - more dominance from the Brett, with a mouthfeel that also suggests there’s a saison in there particularly.
Palate - a light to medium bodied beer that has a creamy texture and the finish is dry and slightly sour and very long.
Overall - tasty and enjoyable but the Brett took over almost completely so it really didn’t matter that there were apricots and spices in there.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Final Gravity in Roseville, CA. Pours translucent copper with a slight beige head. Aroma seems to be mainly a herb. Had it, can’t come up with the name. The roasted apricots lurk beneath. Med minus body. Flavor is a twiggy/herb thing with the roasted apricots (try cooked) and some earth. If this is brettish, it’s mildly so. The twig/herb aspect isn’t all that attractive. Glad to have tried it, but not one of the brewery’s more interesting ales. Finishes pretty dry with a mix of strange things.
