4.2/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

i thought this one was really delicious. not sure why the meh reviews. pours a mildly hazy, peachy burnt gold with a white head that holds and leaves tons of lace. nose carries a lot of spicy yeasty notes along with some fruit and bubblegum notes, a touch of flower, a bit of fresh-bready malt and a subtle brett character. would like to see where the brett takes this beer in six months or so. taste comes off in very good balance with spice, hop and malt blending effortlessly. soft cotton medium body with a mild tingle and pleasant bitterness. alcohol is there and helps amp up the taste, but is barely noticable as a component itself. good brett presence in the finish. no unpleasant aftertastes. solid, enjoyable brew from the twin. (738 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a cloudy light lemony yellow with a finger high foamy white head. The head dissipates quickly and does not exhibit much lacing on the glass.

S: Aromas of a natural root beer with hints of citrus and funk.

T: The flavors are peppery with a lemony medicinal taste. There are herbs and citrus notes with ginger and rosemary present. Also, there is a hint of the taste of root beer.

M: Medium bodied with low to moderate amounts of carbonation and a very slight hint of dryness.

O: Extremely surprised by the hints of root beer in both the aroma and the taste. I enjoyed the beer but I do not feel like it is very sessionable. (635 characters)

A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color and poured with a finger high bright white head that quickly died down and consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: The smell has aromas of natural flavored root beer along with hints of funkiness, lemon citrus and spices.
T: The taste has flavors of ginger, lemon citrus and rosemary along with some hints of root beer.
M: The beer is light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate to high amount of carbonation. The finish has a bit of spiciness but lacks any dryness.
O: The beer is rather easy to drink and has some refreshing properties. (608 characters)

3.56/5  rDev -10.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

500 ml bottle. Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a cloudy gold color with about an inch and a half frothy white head that stayed around for a long time. There's also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like hay, bready malt, peppery spice, lemon peel, and some green apples. It tastes like bready malt, lemon peel, bubblegum, peppery spice and some fruit and herbs. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick and has moderate/high (but soft) carbonation which helps make this easy to drink. I think this is a solid overall brew, but it's not my favorite of the Evil Twin beers I've tried. With that being said, I do think it's worth trying. (654 characters)

I had this on-tap at Max's. Poured into a sample glass.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden color with a layer of white head that fades to a ring around the edge of the glass.

Smell: Sweet from the malt and more fruit notes than herbal notes.

Taste: A mild sweetness with some citrus notes. A slight tartness blends with the herbal undertones. The finish is bitter.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with mild carbonation and a slick finish.

Overall: I felt like this beer didn't know if it wanted to be sour/tart, or herbal. That being said, it was pretty good, and I would have another if given the opportunity. (605 characters)

3.7/5  rDev -7.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Arrives with a cloudy golden color and a moderately-sized head that leaves some splashy lace

Smell: Herbacious, with lemon, green apple and pepper elements; rather yeasty

Taste: Herbal, up front, with lemon and green apple flavors; by mid-palate, the pepper and the Brett and balsa wood elements take over to create a spicy sour profile by mid-palate; while the sourness persists, the fruit lingers underneath into the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Interesting beer, but not particularly well-balanced, as the lemon, Brett and balsa wood elements just don't come together for me (638 characters)

First had: on tap at POPE, Philly, PA

Evil Twin's Ryan and the Beaster Bunny beer with Brett yeast from Jolly Pumpkin.

Served in a stem glass, this beer poured a misty golden color with peach tints. A dense, white head receded to a patchy layer of bubbles that left some pleasant lacing behind. Spicy yeast aroma with tender hints of citrus and spice. Nice and smooth on the palate, lemon zest and grapefruit, Belgian yeast, and peppery spice, all in excellent balance with crisp herbal and floral hops; not too overbearing in any department. Medium-bodied, very tasty, and very drinkable. (591 characters)

on tap at pope in philly

Pours a completely clouded golden color with some yellow hues. Thick, frothy white head retains well on top, fading into some layers of film with some rings of lacing on the glass.

Spicy and citrusy on the nose. Some lemon peel and cracked pepper with a hint of orange sweetness. Barely any alcohol with some soft brett funk and yeast.

Splash of floral hops up front with peppery spice. Some herbal notes followed by citrus juiciness and lemon peel. A little sweet in the middle from the fruit. Hints of bretty funk and Belgian yeast, but not quite tart. Finishes a little spicy.

Medium body, higher carbonation, refreshing and tingly on the palate. A solid saison, although I was hoping for more brett presence. (752 characters)
