3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft... Pours clear and golden with a large, creamy, white head. Good retention. Subtle bouquet of cereal grains and citrus fruit - key lime, lemon and light woody funk. Light-bodied with a thin mouthfeel and dancing carbonation. The flavor is lightly fruity, mildly tart and as bright as high-noon in the Mojave. Crisp, clean, refreshing finish.

Sampled April 2014
A steady pour into my large Tripel Karmeliet tulip glass produces an almost three-finger thick, pale tan colored head that leaves some nice lacing on the sides of my glass. The beer is a pale amber / honey color that shows a bright, but hazy, orange-tinged, straw hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells of herbal lemon zest notes, Meyer Lemon, or perhaps mandarine orange. This is backed and accentuated by a solid tartness, and a funky, not quite ripe cheesy, but definitely oaky / woody character. The aroma gets more complex the deeper you dig with lots of mustiness, toasted oak, summer baked straw, and woody leaning soft pepper notes.
The beer has a light tartness up front that accentuates some fruit character, but finishes with a balancing, funky, sort of woody, medicinal leaning phenolics that linger pervasively on the palate long into the finish. Denuded peppery, spicy aok charactermusty, funky woody notes, slight curing plastic flavors, . There is a solid bite of bitterness to the finish that is accentuated by the funky, phenolic yeast notes. The body of this beer makes this impressively quaffable, yet not overly light or watery; there is just enough viscosity to give this some texture, and the oak character definitely contributes a tannic heft. As the beer warms up there is a solid, pale malt cracker like character that also accentuates a dried hay like character.
This is a really nice beer; funky, yet soft, complex, textured, tartly quaffable, but not overly sour, nicely malty, even some hop character. Not as tart or funky as I might have expected, but it makes up for it with its balance of flavors and complexity.
