3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - A very unusual beer. Poured a cloudy amber color with thick dark yeast in the bottle. Head lasted a while and was fairly thick. Spicy yeasty aroma. FLavor is sweet with a sour finish. Like a cross between a wheat beer and a mild lambic. Very tasty.

Bottle. Thanks to Kkearn. Pours a deep hazy golden body with thin head. Aroma is light grain, wheat, spices. Flavor is bland and bbitter, grainy, slightly acidic. Spices were subdued.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 1/20
Looks murky, hazy, gold with bit of white head that sticks around forever. Smells like lemon and lots of vomit. Palate is nice with good carbonation. Tastes like lots of puke, getting stronger as it warms. Think this one might have gone bad, but given the lactic acid bacteria, not entirely sure. Either way, this is going down the drain.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at HDG. Part 3 of an indetemerinate length ratings miniseries entitled "Getting back beastiefan2k’s buddyship." A very cloudy pale yellow brew with a slight bit of head. Aroma full of coriander with a hint of lactic tartness. Taste very much echoes the aroma. The light tartness is very welcome. Couldn’t quite dig out the salt that was in the description, though I’m not sure if that’s a bad thing. Has a light, spritzy mouthfeel, great for these summer months. An interesting beer for sure, and I must say, a good one.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
16.9oz bottle. Hazy orange-golden with a moderate off-white head. Really nice spice, lemon, yeast, earth, caramel and honey aroma. Flavor is a bit disappointing based on the aroma. Malt, spice, yeast and orange up front, with a dry, lactic finish. Yeasty and thin bodied. Really unique.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy pale golden with a small but lasting white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is slightly acidic with notes of wheat, coriander, and light citrus. Taste is slightly tart and has a mild lemony finish with a hint of salt. Medium thin mouthfeel and mild bittterness. Good.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Slightly musty on the nose with hints of bread and salt. Pours a nice rich amber with decent carbonation. Lightly roasted malt on the palate. I could taste the salt on my lips minutes after I took a sip. Very subdued flavor. Creamy on the palate.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Coles Buffalo NY. Strange brew. sweet, sour, citrusy. Almost white wine-ish. Hard to describe. Salt flavor not as evident as description would lead you to believe.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ HDG 2nd Anniversary. Poured into a 7 oz goblet. Color is a very murky, deep, thick yellow with no clarity. Amazing how a color like this could hide so much of the beer. Small head faded into nothingness and made the beer look absolutely dead. Aroma was strong, particularly on the lemon aspect.with a light tartness. Taste definitely had a salty aspect, seemed like mineral-saltiness. Plenty of lemon in there and a tea-like aspect (damn you JoeMcPhee, its got to be coriander). Its a very light and refreshing beer yet far from watery. Feels very nice on the cheeks, present but not overbearing. The tartness peppered throughout the beer is not acidic at all. Very quaffable and if I could get fresh bottles of this I would probably drink it all summer long.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle; poured a clear, orange-amber with smallish white head. Aroma of salt, citrus and and caramel. Really different flavor and palate combination. Medium body with high carbonation. Flavor was salty, but not a turn off in itself. Strong malt flavor; mostly caramel and honey. A little tartness, but not too strong. Dry finish. Don’t have too strong of feelings either away; not bad, but not something I’d actively seek out again.
