TRVE Brewing Company Axioma
What the brewers say
"A blend of 1- and 2-year-old traditional spontaneous ales."
What our panel thought
"Complex aroma that is rich and funky with barnyard, lemon, and hints of tar. Similar complexity through the finish, just short of the line of being harsh despite restrained sourness."
What our editors thought
"Phenolic smoke and tire rubber dominates the nose like a peaty Scotch, with some citrus fruit undertones that soften the intensity. The sip is strangely subtle by comparison, and the lower carbonation offers an experience akin to Grand Cru Bruocsella."
