2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle from Ales By Mail, drunk 13/05/13. Lively on opening - Despite pouring carefully, i filled a pint glass with almost nothing but head... Crazy stuff. Cloudy, murky orange-brown. Huge, pillowy, cream head. High carb. Aroma - Funky, yeasty, bit pissy, strange spiciness, fruity sweetness. Weird and too funky / yeasty for me. Taste - Bit of a yeasty mess. Mid sweet. Fruity & Spicy - Fairly sweetish, sticky apricot fruit taste, which is one quite nice thing about it, and some fresh spiciness. Bit woody. Peppery. Fairly strong solventy alcohol taste; bit off-putting & sour. Med-heavy body, with a dirty-feeling yeasty palate. Med bitter finish, with some weird, tangy, peppery spiciness & tartness on the tongue. Bizarre, too yeasty and not that easy to drink. There are some intriguing fruity, spicy flavours, but there’s too much weird stuff going on that doesn’t mix well and ends up unpleasantly odd.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Murky toffee color. Big off white head. Lacing. Sugary floral aroma. Some spice and pepper. Taste is flowery and slightly sweet. A bitterness in the end. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. A fairly wacky beer. Apricots, coffee, malt and spices all present in the flavour before a funky spice finish. Interesting and original.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, 330ml at West Country Ales, Cheddar, Somerset. Clouded brown with cream head. Quite a jammy type flavour, tartish apricot with a heavy yeastiness, some burnt bitterness. An interesting beer rather than a totally drinkable one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Light amber, cloudy, average to large and mostly diminishing head. Moderate malty – lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish aroma, light roasted malt, light fruitiness and some spiciness (cinnamon, pepper). Body is medium, malty – lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish flavor, light roasted malt and light fruitiness, light citrus and some spiciness. Finish is to average, malty – lightly wheaty and dryish, light roasted malt, light citrus with some sharp spiciness. Interesting one - in the finish spiciness gets bit too sharp.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at CPK, London. It pours a hazy deep orange colour with a medium off-white head. Aroma is quite sweet and Belgian with notes of rye, spices, apricots. Little funk and some flowery hops. Taste is mildly bitter with some fruity hoppiness. Some sweetness with caramel and apricots and little final tart kick with some brett and spices. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Strange brew but definitelt a good one.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of apricot pie, a sort of pastry note with tart apricot. In addition there is a touch of citrus, and an earthy backbone. The beer is pretty cloudy with a passable head. Flavour adds a lingering tart note with some peppery spice

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hmmm...I was hoping for a fruity saison with some funk. It poured a murky orange / brown. The head was colossal and took a while to settle. The aroma was spicy, fruits and sweet. The taste was like lasagne. Savoury and slightly sour. Nice enough to drink but I wouldn’t buy again.
