Live review.

12oz bottle given to me by schwaeh and poured into my Duvel tulip. Thanks Steve, I owe you one... Well, a couple.

Bottle date of... something or another, something or another, 2011. Terrible place to put bottle dating, Weyerbacher.

A: Pours a nice orange-ish amber color, nice 2 finger, off-white head settles into a thin cap, leaves some spotty lacing that sticks around and doesn't want to let go. More lacing after every sip. Not bad.

S: Odd. What is it I'm smelling? A hop, I'd think, but one I'm not familiar with yet. Spicy, earthiness up front, with a small whiff of orange citrus and slight caramel sweetness. Nice overall aroma, but damn, it's just... odd.

T: Okay, this is better. Starts off a spicy, bitter hop, then slightly piney, grassy and floral, then switches to a subdued sweetness and slightly toasted note, and then goes back to a citric, bitter hop. Alcohol? Where? 6.2%? Hmm... Could have fooled me. Finishes slightly oily, slightly bitter, and very cleanly.

M: Oily, decent body, and nice carbonation doesn't get in the way. Sticks around the palate well.

O: Damn, surprisingly good. I think this is only my... 3rd beer from Weyerbacher, I think, and it's a damn good one. I'd gladly buy this one again. I would have passed straight over it since I haven't had anything from them that wowed me before this, but this one has me rethinking that. Good job from Weyerbacher.

Taken from several years old notes.

A: 1/4" off white head that fell to light lacing. Clear copper body.

S: Toasted bread, caramel, and bitter hops.

T: Big bitter hop bite, toasty & pale malts with a hint of caramel all wilt under an onslaught of bitter hops. Not much other character to the hops though.

M: Medium-light body, fairly aggressive carbonation. Bitter, lasting finish.

O: Hugely bitter, which normally I like, but here, there's just not enough else happening. Just ok.
