4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy yellow with a thin white head. Lots of lactic cheese hay aromas. Lots of that tart lemon, lactic, earthy and hay flavors. The tart and juicy lemon notes are balanced really well. Dry lemons in the finish. The acidity gets strong as it warms up. But this is a solid sour.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared thanks to scotchzi! Pours a slightly hazy yellow with thin bubbly ring of head and no lacing. Aroma of sour lemon and light tropical fruits. Taste is a funky sour fruit bomb with a bubbly dry finish. This is a home run for a brewery I have not liked in the past.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear, bright solar yellow; whitish head doesn’t stick around for long. Aroma has a strong, fruity, wine-like overtone. Flavor is more like a white wine than a beer, strongly fruity and tangy, definite notes of grapes and fruit, puckeringly sour. Firm texture is quite smooth and fizzy, leaving a tart fruity finish. If you like wild ales, I’m sure you "wood" like this one!
