A good amount of burnt tire flavor on this beer with a slight pumpkin sweetness. Leather and burnt rubber are the headliners in this beer. Not drinkable.

A: Pours a murky orange/light red with one full finger of just slightly off-white head. The foam lingers for a bit, but not for too long. There is minimal lacing as it drinks.

S: The nose is latex, tomatoes, soy, and burnt. Ugg. I’m not looking forward to this one.

T: Damn. It’s just like the nose. I get a lot of tomato juice right up front, mixed with sage like spice. It reminds me of a really bad bloody mary. As the beer moves to the middle it’s latex and tire fire. No good.

M: Light bodied beer. It hits the palate with thin nastiness and maintains that level of gross to the finish.

O: This is brutal. The off flavors in here are so off putting that I have to dump this down the drain. Four sips is three sips too many. Again, I know there is a lot of bottle variation with this particular beer, and it looks like I didn't win the lottery. Bummer.

750 ml bottle purchased in Indianapolis.

A -GUSHER! Not a slow creeper, an eruption upon opening. I lost half the bottle. No head, pours a murky orangish.
S - The best part of this beer, and that's not saying much. Some earthy funk, a hint of fruit sweetness.
T - I don't know where to begin. No funk, no sour, just a very strange earthy herbal quality. Undrinkable, and a drain pour.
M - Medium, fizzy.
O - Poor. Just a bad brew from start to finish, so avoid at all costs. I usually love Fantome brews, but this was a terrible drain pour.

Thanks Thorpe, served in a Fantome glass. Beer is amber and hazy with a thin lazy low white head of small bubbles, no lacing.

Aroma is vegetal and spicy odd, yeasty almost hoppy if the hops were boiled in cabbage.

Not a fan, this beer is pretty gross. It is corny, cabbage, boiled vegetable stock but something rotten about it. A complete miss for me. Will not be a repeat.

s beer is a huge gusher. Lost almost half the bottle.

The color is this unfiltered hazy peach orange.

The aroma has fermented apricot, tons of phenolic and band aids. Some funk in there.

The flavor follows with this apple cider sweetness, a bit of fermented fruit flavor, again the band aid phenols. There’s lots of spice and green herbal. Actually a bit of lemon tartness going on. An extremely weird amagalmation of fruits and chemicals and herbs and spices. Strange.

A weird beer. The flavors were interesting, but it didn’t work for me. I actually had to drain pour this.

Served in a Fantome tulip. Nose has some banana and spice and a bit of plastic, which ten comes more through in the taste. Dry herbal bitterness. Quite odd. I've had this one twice now and have not enjoyed it at all either time, though I've heard that others whose tastes I trust have had better experiences, so maybe the third time will be the charm.

750ml bottle into tulip.

A: Pours a semi-clear dark golden/light amber with a fluffy and extremely dense and thick off-whitehead that took forever and a day to slowly collapse into thick film.
S: I get funky notes of apple cider vinegar and tons of cooked squash. Smells like old vegetables with some mild spice and a touch of earth. Slightly medicinal.
T: Follows the nose but thankfully not as much cooked vegetable. Hints of lemon and earth in the finish. Mild tartness, earthy and mild spice, with light tartness and light funk. Squash is still noticeable but I wouldn't call it pumpkin. Slight medicinal quality in the finish next to some peppery spices. Candy like sweetness, iced tea, and anise flavors as well.
M: Medium full body, slick mouthfeel, low and fuzzy carbonation made of tight, tiny bubbles. Not super dry, slight greasy.
O: I didn't like it. Definitely tastes like squash but the nose is off putting and the tastes leaves something to be desired.

C

750ml into a tulip. Pours a hazed copper tang, orange tinged head is dense and retains nicely, plenty of lace.

The aroma is dominated by a peculiar phenolic combination of short circuited wiring, pcb and old sock - not in a nice way. Something nice lies below but the tulip is not its friend.

The flavor thankfully does not follow suit. Slightly tart, very yeasty, pleasantly musty. Grass and grapefruit, fairly dry with an herbal bitter finish which does have a tad of the burnt wiring at the very end. Slightly more than thin bodied prickly mouthfeel. This would taste better out of the bottle.
cheers
