3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler from TheBeerSommelier, thanks M. Opened with a good burst of carbonation rushing out so that was a good sign. The pour was perfect and you never would have known that this was from a growler that was well over a month old and had been shipped several hundred miles. A deep solid red/orange body sits underneath a large full foamy white head. Aroma is grainy and bready with notes of Belgian yeast, some rotting fruit and pepper. Fuller bodied with average carbonation and a dry finish with some lingering flavors. Flavor is dry bread, hint of lemons, light pepper, Belgian yeast. Good stuff and then considering the way this one was served it bumps it up a notch or two.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A couple pours of this from a 4 oz. taster glass.
4.5 A: Clear medium orange color. One finger of creamy beige head with average retention and tons of lacing.
4.5 S: Lots of pepper and clove spiciness. Peach fruitiness and perhaps a touch of apple. Moderate barnyard funk. Really nice.
4.5 T: Again, lots of clove and pepper with peach and apple fruitiness. Mild barnyard funk. Touches of hay.
4.0 M: Ligher medium body. Good active carbonation. Could be creamier though.
4.5 D: Really good beer. That is all.
Serving type: bottle

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy golden amber color w/ a solid white head. Plenty of yeast in the nose. Also aromas of citrus, bread and grain. Crisp carbonation w/ smooth medium body. A little syrupy, but not cloying. Familiar belgian yeast flavor dominates along with a fruity sweetness, w/ notes of pepper and some hops. Slight bitterness in the finish. Excellent beer and I’m looking forward to this brewery once they get up and running.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Savannah, Ga - The Distillery - on tap. Very dark orange, murky with a sticky white head and a nice generous coat of lacing. Aroma is sweet with some licorice and cinnamon. Flavor has a lot going on. Some candied sugar notes permeate the back end, hint of sweet bourbon, nekot wafer candy and a hint of bubble gum. Thick, sticky mouthfeel. Pretty decent.
