2.78/5  rDev +32.4%

A: Pours bright yellow with a white head that stays surprisingly well. Light orange that seems to glow. Leaves some nice lace.

S: Sweetish smell with hints of banana and orange. A slight sourness reminiscent of a geuze. Spicy notes include coriander and white pepper.

T: Oddly complex taste. Elements include banana, cheddar cheese, underripe cherries, apricots and even the sweet hints of plums.

M: Medium bodied. Slightly oily and overcarbonated.

O: Unimpressive. I've had much more impressive beers from De Garve. Beer got worse as it warmed up.

1.43/5  rDev -31.9%

340ml bottle 6,5% Abv.
Served chilled in a Brewdog Teku glass
No bottle date

Appearance: Very lightly hazed golden-yellow body, topped by a good sized white head that lasts pretty well, but leaves almost no lacing.

Smell: Holy shit, this smells disgusting! It is totally skunked!
Some real perseverance yields some pale grain, a touch of coriander, citrus and banana all hiding under the salty, sweaty, stale skunk aroma.

Taste: As expected, the flavour is totally skunked and tastes like old, stale cigarettes mixed with salty sweat. The banana from the nose is present if one is willing to look for it.

Mouthfeel: Light-medium body with a high level of carbonation.

Overall: I will rereview this beer as soon as the brewer bottles it in a brown bottle and adds a bottled on or a best before date.
