3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, old gold pour with a 2 finger, soapy off white head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing. Strange aroma, banana esters, lots of fruity and floral notes, some interesting, earthy, citrus and fruity notes that are pretty hard to pin down, maybe the Feijoa fruit? Flavor is tart and fruity up front, with a sort of green wood tartness and acidity that lasts, lots of tart floral notes that remind me of rose hips, some sweatiness and that lingering green wood bite. Medium body, with a dry entry leading to an astringent, tart (very vitamin c like acidity) finish. Weird beer, I actually enjoyed it a decent amount, but it took me a while to wrap my head around what I was tasting.
Looks a bit like apple juice. Very little to no head. Aroma of hibiscus, floral, and tart apples. Kind of a tart and tripel mux, although the tripel aspect is subdued. Kind of a weird concoction, but its not terrible. BuckeyeBoy (8281) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 23, 2016
On tap at bier thirty. Pours out a hazy cloudy gold topped with a white head. Nose is pepper spice a nice fruit mix apple grapes and some yeast esters. Taste is more of the nice fruit mix it blends well with the spice malts. djd07 (15342) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 9, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy gold with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is fruity malt, cherry and apple skin. Medium mouth with sweet fruit and yeast, hides alcohol well, very good. Sammy (12610) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2016

April 13th, 2013 - I like sour ales. I like brett. But sezchuan pepper? I’m so uncultured I’ve never had sezchuan cuisine, let alone its ingredients in my beer. But the mix is curious. The aroma is is heavy with citrus and peach, with an oak edge that often appears in brett-fermented beers. Rivulets of pear juice also run in the aroma, and the light peach and pear remind me of a popular fruit flavor common in Japan, appearing in drinks and candies. I also smell something that conjures images of shredded carrot and raisin salad - tangy and sweet at the same time, but softly sugared. The flavor begins flat and surreptitious, and then rises up to a louder churning of carbonation, before fading again into a wistful blend of pear and white peach. The mouthfeel is soft across all the transformations, and gets lighter the more you consider it. The sugar is disciplined, opting for an soft, pillowy fruit sweetness that I first tasted in Unibroue’s Ephemera. The aftertaste (well after the final notes of fresh pears) tastes more like chewing on dry, granular pear skins, and is actively unpleasant. But overall this is a fruit beer that takes a gentle approach to the style, and I rather like it. By the way, where’s the pepper? Cweade (33) - - NOV 5, 2014
