Pours clearish golden with white head. Notes are cardboard, pool water, and medicine. Insanely dry and bland like a homebrew or something. Thin and not good all around. Not sure what the intention was here

Clear golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, slight lemon, earthy, woody tones but pretty subdued. Taste was a mix of earth, spice, some wood, hints of biscuit, bread, dough, finishing slightly grassy, spicy.

3/9/14. 22oz bottle from the brewery, enjoyed at home. Hazy yellow pour with a small off-white head. Funky aroma, lightly tart, sweet tarts in a way, some breadiness. Lightly funky and tart flavor, a touch of a sort of vegetal aspect, and hints of minerals. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle. $14 from Party Town. Shared with Alden & Shelly. Clear golden orange color. Minimal white head, no lace really sticks. Light to medium body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Moderate sweet taste, but not as sweet as in the dark edition. Nice mild tartness is easier to appreciate in this version, a little more zesty too. A little more hazy and yeasty in the final pour, leaving nice head, and better lace.. Going to choose to judge from this final pour. Yeast is good, in this beer.. Nice citric, tart yeasty quality, brett does well here. Some good complex character in this final pour. Liking it significantly better than the dark version. Not quite worth the price, though.

Thanks to drowland for the share.
Pretty much a pilsner with a slight sour kick. Didn’t quite work...Big yellow pour with lots of yeast. Kolsch-y grainy aroma, but with a nice floral presence The tart hits in the taste and, for me, works against the malty and doughy body creating a weird synthetic taste. The cypress woodiness is there, but not a huge factor. Interesting idea, but no cigar.

They were dabbling in funkiness with this one. I'm not really a fan of pilsners but using the wild yeast (which I just found out is cultivated just down the road at Four Roses distillery) adds a pleasant dimension. Smells like a pilsner and tastes like a pilsner only filtered through a horse blanket. Barkeep says it's an intro to funkiness. C'mon boys...take off the training wheels.

Draft. Slightly sour orange, barley malt, and hay aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Lightly sour/barnyard, lemon/orange, and barley malt flavor. This was delicious - didn’t know how wild yeast would go with a lager but worked well.
