3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Cloudy as hell, unlike the bottle. Yeast heads rejoice. Medium creamy yellow beige head that almost looks like dirty sea foam. Aroma is funk, yeast, lemon. Flavor the same, light sweet with some unidebtifiable fruit, medium tart. Medium body, almost chalky mouthfeel. Decent, but i bet the bottle its better.

12 ounce bottle from Nugget in Woodland, CA. The aroma on this is very attractive with sour, lemony character. Light acetic, and light floral notes. Very quaffable stuff. Moderately hazy yellow-golden body with a smallish white head, and fair lacing. Starts moderately tart and acidic. Becomes quite fruity with almost a cider-like flavor. Light floral flavors later, and a light cheesy finish. Moderate tartness. Really nice stuff.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from The Davis Beer Shop. Pours brilliant gold with a white head. Aroma is sour fruit (must be persimmons) with some spice. Med body. Flavor is sour, then spicy, then a bit sweet. Finishes off with some astringent oak. Very nice sour. A few minutes have passed. Vinosity is now very noticeable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours with a hazed golden hued body with a small white head that fades relatively quickly. Aromas are of white wine, ginger, crisp, earthy persimmons, light tropical fruit, kumquats and something savory I canít place. Medium Brett. Very vinous. Flavors are dry, tart and crisp with a bit of ginger spice notes and juicy white wine vinous character, good oak, nice fruit character, dry, a bit jammy moderate funk and good acidity. Cleanly lactic. Excellent. I prefer this noticeably to the FR#1, despite thinking Iíd like that one more going into this. Lively bubbles, nicely tart, low spice, crisp and quenching.

375 ml. Bottle. It pours a light orange color with a small white head. The aroma is pleasantly mild with persimmon notes, hints of ginger. The flavor is lactic, tart... more like a Berliner. Light body. Not much funk but hints of wood in the finish. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yellow gold with a quickly fading gassy head. Peaches, caramel and sour/lactic notes are all present in the aroma. Flavor is tart stone fruit and a bit of sulphur - though not unpleasant. The fruits, vegetables and spice used in the brewing do not directly transfer to either the aroma or flavor of this beer. Smells and tastes like a nicely made gueze.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft release for Sf Beer Week.. Solid. Above average quality, clean and focused. VERY TART citrus fruit, clean, with buttery nuances from the barrel... mouthwatering and refreshing. Worth seeking. Berliner Weisse and Geuze come to mind.. Though this has it's own personality. Yum!
