Cheers to Al from the Great Northern Hotel in Carlton for squirreling away this offering from Garrett Oliver and sharing.

Pours a cloudy gold with a slight rosy tinge. Opaque, slight bead. Head dissipates quickly, doesn't leave much lace. Interesting but could see some improvement.

Nose is quite funky, with spice and lots of vanilla sweetness. Some sweetish floral notes, caramel and honeycomb as well; interesting. Decent tart character, but could still use more to cut through the sweetness.

Tastes very sweet: caramel and buttery notes on there, gets a sour note late-mid with funky organic tartness and a hint of berry. Barnyard character as well, but then very dry and boozey on the back. Rummy character finishes off, sweet and syrupy with a big hit of ethyl alcohol. That acidity on the mid-palate is pleasant but it needs to last to the back to cut through. Very flavoursome, but I like that sour character best and I wish it were more of a hero here.

Decent body; bit fluid and very dry on the back.

Bit heavy overall; I hate to keep harping on about it but I just feel something's needed to cut through that big boozey body.
