3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours a muddy dark orange, thick white head. Nose was predominately fruity like apricot, mandarine orange, and cherry drizzled with complimenting notes of vanilla and oaky wood. Dry, woody, alcoholic fruit flavors...apricot/orange/nectarine...pretty boozy and very oaky with vanilla softness and essence of apple in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thin, off-white, sloppy head of varying sized bubbles. Minimal carbonation. Nice complex aroma. A slight bit of funkyness in there along with lots of vinuous white grape aromas, some herbs, a hint of bret and some soft grainy malts. Color is a slightly hazy dark copper. Flavor has a little zip to it from the funky tartness that accompanies the spicyness from the mustard seeds. The tartness keeps the mouth salivating and begging for more while at the same time drying out the palate. More white grape with only a minor alcohol presence. Some belgian yeast and a tad of straw round out the late palate portion. A pretty good brew that will not be a hit with everybody.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled sample consumed at Avenue Pub. Gold in colour with moderate yet spritzy carbonation. Aromas are of sour citrus, oak, liquor (maybe white vermouth), and mustard. Flavours are of more sour fruit, wood, white grapes, vanilla, and a bit of balsamic vinegar. Round mouthfeel and a bit boozy. Not bad.

750 ml bottle @ redlight redlight. Funky oaky aroma with sour mustard aromas. Pours a hazy orange with no head. Oaky upfront with hints of mustard and hints of brandy with some citrus and apple notes as well. Very smooth and sweet. Very interesting and different!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Acquired in a trade with phaleslu! Pours a cloudy golden-orange color with white head. Aroma has loads of fruit like apple and peach. Some spice is there too. Taste is sweet with some underlying fruitiness and a little spice. Medium bodied and smooth. A little alcohol burn is there. Really pretty awesome and it exceeded my expectations considering the mustard seeds.

4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Cloudy, half-set honey with a fade from straw-gold to tiger orange all topped with a creamy crest - picture perfect. Lemony Belgian yeast aromas mingle with a bandy burn on the nose. Smooth and sleek on the tongue carrying puffy wafts of sweet and sour. A tiny detection of light hopping and a spirituous richness that sticks in the throat. An amazing beer.
