3.58/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a golden colour, clear and dull. Head, though, is something else - cream-coloured with a yellow tint, massive generosity but beautifully clumpy, with nice lacing. Looks good.

Smells a bit phenolic, and quite metallic with touches of melon, orange and brown sugar. Sweet in parts, kind of Belgian in other parts. Not bad, but not quite sure what to make of it.

Taste is also somewhat Belgian, or at least phenolic. Big loads of medicine from the get-go. Big, malty with a touch of toffee underneath it, but otherwise spice and yeast. Pumpernickel, pepper, clove and cardamom. Melon, lemon and some bread yeast notes as well which is a shame. Sort of dries up a bit but it's OK, pretty decent I guess.

Smooth, pretty fluid. Quite pleasant.

I guess decent, but it doesn't quite wow me in the flavour stakes. Just kind of mild with a slight phenolic edge.

Purchased this some time ago, but I'm not quite sure where from. Shared with @LaitueGonflable and @tobeerornottobe.

Pours a pale golden colour with a fine and initially intense head of white, that froths up on pouring. This forms a mild, solid white crust atop the beer. Decent lacing forms as the head collapses. Overall, a decent, if not spectacular brew.

Nose is earthy, slightly vegetative and slightly grainy, with rustic, but solid elements coming through. Grassy celery, some earthy roots and a strained greenness. It's not bad, and it has those clean but dull English characters to it. But yeah, that's not super interesting.

Taste is similar. Light grainy malt, fresh but dulled English hop characters, and a mild, muted bitterness on the finish. Smooth feel helps a lot, and gives a cleanness to the palate. But it feels pretty dull and pedestrian overall. The only thing I'll genuinely say in its favour is that the 7% is completely unnoticeable.

It's a bit disappointing for such a big bottle release from Yeastie Boys. It feels like a very dull effort overall. In some respects it's pretty solid, but seriously, you guys do crazy shit! Give me some of that!

Pours a hazy golden hue with a two finger head and little lacing,the smell is flowery perfume,white grapes,bready malts and floral earthy hops,the mouthfeel is abit too light for me and only light bodied with tastes of lemongrass,fragrant flowery hops,fruit salad,a touch of biscuty malts and finished with a light bitterness and overall nothing flash and would not buy again.
