TAR (2685) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Batch 2: Misty golden. Towering white crown of clingy meringue. Potently phenolic nose of medical tape, sulfur, white pepper and matchstick along with sherbet, pineapple marmalade, lemon verbena, grassy herbs, celery seed, perfumey hops. New-mown hay aromas lurk beneath. Slightly soapy. Expansive, feathery soft carbonation. Boisterously phenolic from the get-go, with sassy lavender and Russian sage sharpness swirled with brisk bandage- and sulfur-laden phenolics. Crackery, haylike pils malt gracefully restores softness as it blankets the palate with multilayered starches. Grain is supportive, throughout, and mostly clean with the exception of the faintest huskiness (burnt wood) exuding. Twinge of pineapple gorgeously dovetails with the zesty hoppiness and a lemon verbena imbued tartness. Late emergence of floral nectarine succulence couples with a brett-derived peach fuzz bitterness and citrus peel acid to add detail and some welcomed softness to the center. While the hops aren’t overly unruly, at times they teeter on an aspirinlike resinous edge which thankfully stops just shy of clashing with the stark dryness and robust herbs. Plenty of redemptive lemon and tropical fruit succulence beneath the hops continually beckons you to take another large gulp. Finishes explosively phenolic and dryly malty with notes of hay dust, lemon and sharp herbs. Nice effort here. Does need a lot of time to breathe in order to soften and coalesce, as it’s quite brisk and leans toward stark, early on. Aside from some subtle soapiness - which presumably comes from the coriander as it can take on that character when used excessively - this is very enjoyable.

Lagerboy (1957) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 22, 2016
750 ml corked and caged bottle, Batch #8 April/2015. Loud champagne pop. Unclear light pale yellow, huge firm white foam eventually settles and lasts. Aroma of fruity yeast, coriander, pepper spices and faint funk. Taste is citrus fruity, dirty earthy yeast, coriander and white pepper, mild funk, lean wheat malt. Higher carbonation, medium bodied, well hopped. Nice enough but overpriced. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

solidfunk (7696) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 20, 2016
Decent. Some bretta, some light oak. Some pine. Pours hazy golden with good head and lacing. Interestingly, this was called "Jolly Pumpkin Galaxy White" but I’m assuming that was a mix up. Tap at Churhckey.

jhgrantjr (469) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 13, 2016
On tap at the Beer Belly in Albany, NY. This is really a unique IPA. Pours a hazy lift yellow color, but the aroma is complex: lemons, grass, wheat, coriander, pepper...lots of stuff going on. Taste is more funky than IPAs...has an oak finish. But not heavy. Great IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CObiased (332) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - SEP 26, 2016
Bomber - pours a semi cloudy almost clear or opaque liquid with a very thick soapy white head that slowly dissipates. The aroma is slightly sour along with hints of tropical fruit and lemony hops. A unique IPA with flavors like lemon, funky brettomyces, floral notes, herbal grassiness, white biscuit malt and sour fruit.
