3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 11, 2016
From bottle late 2015 to present. Hazed gold body with a small white head. Good effervescence brings to life a lot of vivid peppery bubble gum esters with lemony, grassy hops and a mineral-heavy pilsner malt honey richness. Floral, chalky, sulfuric, salty, peppery, juicy. Rich and tart and fruity and dry and bitter and beautiful. Breathes a bit of banana esters as it opens. I will complain that it’s a little too rough / dry around the edges and in the finish, but otherwise it’s very clean tasting, no fusels, highly attenuated, and in fine shape.

Bottle. Hazy, dark yellow to gold, medium white head. Aroma of yeast, peppery, herbs, flowers. Taste is neutral, moderately bitter, a bit astringent finish. Peppery hoppy tones, yeasts, malts, herbs, touch of flowers. Medium body and carbonation.
Not my favourite, but still good.

ALLOVATE (3074) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 19, 2017
Into a Dupont chalice at just on cool. Misty, pastel orange body with very fine, streaming carbonation. Holds a Complex nose is fruity with a tinge of leavened bread dough and soft white cheese. Notes of banana, strawberry, salty preserved lemon, pink lady apples and Semillon grapes. Ultra dry, light and effervescent on first sip. Opens up to reveal a nicely sharp citric acidity in back. Lasting, rough, herbal bitterness in the swallow is matched by the fruit of the nose. The lemon is quite well pronounced, as is a bready malt profile to the front. A hint of vanilla and lavender builds as it goes. The body filling out somewhat. Alcohol is shy and irrelevant. Drinks with remarkable ease. Wonderfully balanced, lively and tasty number from this great brewer. Good stuff!!! (37,5cL, BBE 09/18, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)
