3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Bottle. Amber brown pour, with a ton of head (overflowed out of my Unibroue tulip, actually). Fruity aromas: raisin, apple, pear. Flavor is sweet, with some caramel notes and malts. Smooth and velvet-like on the palate. Recommended.

Bottle. Pours a gorgeous copper with a big fluffy white head. Aroma has rust, lots of yeast characteristics, ester, lemon zest, pretty rural with the farmhouse yeast. Taste is quite malty, caramel, hayish, rural and a lot of yeast characteristics, esters, lime. Pretty decent.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Despite, or perhaps correlated with, this bottle being a gusher, this beer looked great. Big ass lively even creamy head with a crystal clear reddish orange hued body. Became a bit cloudy when I pushed the pouring thing. Toasty biscuity malt nose. Subtle. A bit creamy. A hint of fruit. Not awe inspiring, but not bad. A full lively mouth. Small even bubbles. The flavors are pretty much in step with the nose. Big toasty biscuit malt. Bread. A good bit of fruit. Some alcohol sneaks out. A bit of tannic stuff going on. The style seems to support less alcohol usually, so it’s a it odd here. Significant hops, floral. A bit of acidity. Not a huge fan, but not a terrible beer either. Interesting at least.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a slightly hazy copper with a small layer of foam and some minimal lace. Aroma of pennies, diacetyl, and amber malt. Tastes oddly sweet - almost sickeningly so at first, but then the hops kick in and attempt to balance the finish. Lots of diacetyl, some alcohol. Thin creamy body, low carb. Not a fan.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle served in a tulip. The active yeast urges the foam out of the bottle even before I had a chance to put it in the glass. Pours murky amber-brown with a short head that stays on top as a thin film. Medium sweet aroma of multiple dark fruits, toffee, soy, and bread. The flavor is not as sweet as the aroma suggests. Medium body, thick-oily texture, fizzy carbonation, and a somewhat fruity, moderately dry finish.
