3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pouring at session one of EBF in Boston. Pours a barely hazy gold with a thin white head. Light funk, hay. Touch of sweet brett. Smooth, wood. Like sour funk, tangy and wooden. Impressive, especially given what I recall the base beer being like.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cisco Lady from the Woods - tart lemony nose. Dusty w hints of corriander and spice. Oak barrels as well as white wine maybe. Hazy yellow golden pour fizzy white head. Tart oaky almost sour. Wit spice, orangey flavors and some coconut lemony tartness and dry wood in finish. Funky a little buggy. Fizzy big carb. Thirst quenching enjoyable. 8 3 7 5 15 solid.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap at Track 84 - Warwick, RI. This beer was assaulting to the palate. The intense herbal qualities of the base beer mashed up against the acidity of the barrel to make for a coarse combination. Overbearing tart lavender-like qualities run against citric barrel edges. Not really drinkable, in my opinion.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This one poured a cloudy light straw almost white color with a large white head. Aroma was tart citrus fruits, some mild spices, and intersting camomille notes too. Flavor was all over the place, in a good way. It started out citrusy and tart, followed by a slight funk, finishing with a coconut flavor and some lingering camomille.

Big thanks to Andrew at the Pgh RB gathering 12/09. Somewhat tart aroma. Pale yellow and clear. Winelike to a certain extent. Spicy and unique with very little carbonation. Weirdly sweet in its own sugar substitute way. Woody and slightly sour on the finish. Nice beer tasting experience.

Bottle at 12/19 Pgh tasting, thanks to Andrew!
Gold with a white head, this has a nose of orange, citrus, light chamomile, and barrel. The flavor shows more spice and balance, but less refreshing citrus. Moderate body. An odd one that’s difficult to place, possibly because it marries so many different elements so well.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thanks to the Pittsburgh Christmas tasting 09. Pours a clear golden hue with a medium white head. The aroma is funky citrus, like fermented papaya. A sweet funky flavor, chamomile, orange peel. Interesting. Nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly cloudy gold body with a tall white head. Nose of spices, some chamomile, pepper, and citrus. The oak was very subtle, soft and drying. I was hopping this might pick up some funkiness, but none really. Rather so-so overall.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light and pale straw golden that is slightly cloudy. Whispy white head that leaves some lacing. Citrus, wheat, banana, bubblegum, chamomile, white peppercorn, light vanilla sweetness with hints of oak. Lively but loose effervescent body. White peppery notes with tart lemon and banana blend, dry woodiness kind of plays underneath along with some vegital notes. Great idea with a good nose and mediocre execution. Thanks Alex fo another interesting beer.
