3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, at brewpub. Pours a clear copper tinged amber body with a one finger frothy beige head that fell to a thin ring. Slightly grainy earthy malt dominates the nose with a lighter accent of farmhouse funk. A little bit of horseblanket and mushroom soil. The flavor is more funky than the nose though, it has an over-ripe mushroom note that doominates the farmhouse character. Some light yeast and dark malts. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, a little heavy for the style in my experience, with a slightly clingy finish. Overall this was decent, without any real flaws, but it just doesn’t do it for me.

( 750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) Pours very murky rusty orange with huge fluffy lasting head. Nose is funky and fruity. Taste is apricot, alcohol, creamy with a great sweet linger. I also find that it has a good crisp hop kick at the end.

Bottle shared at Moosetoberfest. Poured a honey amber with a thick large foamy mostly white head. Aroma was vinous with chardonnay notes, wood and apple cider. Full foamy bodied. Slight metallic notes on the initial flavor, grains and rust over top some white grapes and vinegar. I was rather underwhelmed by this and once again Bullfrog seems to be more Bullshit and hype then good brew.

Draft at Capones. Pours an amber body with an off white head. Citric, candy, fruit punch and something that reminds me of a juice box. Apricot dry with a light spice note. Great beer.

750 shared by vferg. Pours a hazed honey amber- a bit muddy with a huge carbonation and a dirty yeasty big head. Aroma has a sharp sweet-tartness to it, with weird fruity esters esp as it warms- almost a grape and strawberry ester presence- with a muddled yeasty and dry crackery malts. Flavor is yeasty, phenolic, fruity, dough, dirty muddy yeast, toffee, light sweetness with a hint of tartness in the finish. A bit messy and really looks kinda bad next to the Haverhill BdG. This is a definite miss for Bullfrog.

750ml Bottle: Aroma of light tart fruit, light yeast, wheat bread crusts, grains, spices, cardamom, earth, slight citric acid, slight sour-apple, and slight fruit. Poured muddy brown in color with a large, loose, tan head that lasted throughout. Cloudy. Very sparkling. Flavor is complex, lightly sweet, and slightly bitter. Tastes of dirty malts, light spices, yeast, slight sugary fruit candy, slight citric acid, slight mushroom, light hops, and slight wood. Light to medium body. Dry, slightly chalky texture. Lively carbonation makes my cheeks expand. Malt, grain, light hop finish is dry and slightly chalky. 7.2%ABV is completely hidden.
