3.93/5 rDev -2.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Poured from their 12oz bottle...
Appearance - Poured nearly 3 fingers of light khaki eggshell foam, body is a perfectly transparent copper amber,
Smell - Toasted malts, nearly burnt toffee, some rich sweet dark fruits, pumpernickel bread.
Taste - Starets with sweet toasted breadcrusts, minerals, burnt toffee, pungent floral hops, and then herbal hops like coriander and a touch of cilantro, and something else there, almost like rye. I get some grapefruit pith long into the finish with burnt rye crusts.
Mouthfeel - Medium mouthfeel, carb is nearly medium and quite smooth, but gets some edges near the back of the tongue. Fairly easy to drink, although it dries out (somewhat chalky feeling) near the end of each quaff.
Overall - A very unique ale with nice complexity, balance and unique flavors. Definitely a good one to seek out if you want something a bit different.

4.1/5 rDev +1.5%

Pours very clear light amber with sediment that looks like I shook up a snow globe, except the snow is just suspended, probably the most unusual pours I have seen... and I like it. 2" fluffy head with great lacing. Smell is alcohol and sweet coriander. Tastes like the smell except not a huge alcohol flavor. Well balanced grapefruit, malt, and hop. Mouthfeel is smooth and sweet with a light bitter at the end.
Overall, this is the last beer from a case I got last spring. An excellent beer I should have drank up fresh. I don't think the age has done anything for this one and possibly has hurt the flavor. Still it's very good today, but my next case will be gone before the the 4th of July.
