2.75/5 rDev -20.5%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2
Single bottle (no dates I could interpret) poured into a tumbler.
Appearance: Orange-brown in color but when held up to the light the orange shades are stronger. Pale white foam (1/8") across the top of the glass with plenty of lacing when drinking it down. Nice.
Smell: Earthy and loamy - reminds me of first spring dirt. There is some hoppy smell in there, but it's unusual. It's not doing it for me.
Taste: Earthy flavors again. Some metallic tang and bitterness combined. Again very unusual but for me unbalanced in the bitterness direction. I'm still not getting it.
Mouthfeel: Plenty of carbonation otherwise nothing special.
Drinkability: No...I'm not liking this one. It didn't go well with a meal and the taste isn't something I can see sitting and sipping, or even having alone. Maybe this one is past freshness?
Serving type: bottle
