Bottle thanks to trade with jdb288! Pours a hazy yellow with bubbly white head that lasts. Aroma is awesome, kiwi and tropical fruit notes over funk. Taste follows with wheat accents, wow, smooth. Really nice!

Bottle (09/2014). Pours golden with a moderately lasting white head. First pour from the bottle was clear; second pour was opaque. Distinctive HF yeast aroma, some light citrus. Lightly tart; light and bright lemon. Light bodied; average, but lively carbonation; refreshing.

Pour from a 750 at the dirty fib kbs bottle share. Slight tart, touch of sour. Lots of farmhouse, grass, hay, lemon. some say horse blanket, but this was more like being at a petting zoo. Slight pepper. More barnyard, farmhouse yeast than most HF saisons. Nice.

Clara is a thing of yeasty, funky glory. She pours golden yellow with lots of head. The effervescent, fizzy body is like that of a Lambic, but the long-lasting, big head is what you’d expect from a well-made Farmhouse Ale. It’s no great surprise, then, that Clara smells and tastes like each. Smell has sour funk, bright yeast, bread, and citrus. Taste features vinegar, earthy and fruity yeast, sweet malt, lemon juice, and some black pepper. Mouthfeel is smooth and slightly crisp. Clara packs a ton of flavor and complexity into her 4% ABV body. She’s a purist’s dream. People who love yeasty brews owe it to themselves to try Clara.

(Thanks Adam "AdamJackson")
A- Vinegar, citrus, lemon, champagne, tart.
A- Golden orange color, cloudy milky liquid, white head.
T- Vinegar, citrus, slightly sweet, tart, effervescent, subtle spice.
P- Light body, average texture, high carbonation, tart finish.
O- This was about 7 months old and probably would have been even more amazing but I wanted to save it for my 600th rating. Sure glad I did. Lots of vinegar and citrus on the nose and palate. Looks like someone cracked an egg yolk in the glass with the nice milky appearance. I probably liked it better than my rating shows. Very well done beer. Hard to believe this is only 4% abv.

Bottle from my buddy Pat, thanks man! Cloudy yellow colour with frothy white head. Aroma is dusty white grape funk, citrus, and grass. Taste is light tart funk, citrus, a hint of bitterness, with a juicy tart finish, medium bodied. Very quenching, with an exceptional amount of flavour and complexity for a beer that weighs in at mere 4%, solid body as well, wow.
