750ml from State Line. I’ve not had the base beer, but comparison aside this one was really intriguing. Lively pale gold pour with crisp, prickly carbonation such as you’d get with a gueuze. The nose has a promiment, oaky chard thing happening with hints of dryness, tartness coming on. It’s acetic enough to give it some sharpness on the tongue, but not as in heat. Taste is dry white wine, slight woody funk, and just a hint of citrus and lactose. Kinda like a second-tier Brute or Temptation but that’s still pretty sweet.

Pours a cloudy/milky straw yellow, with white head. Tart, lemons, floral, light wheat sweetness, fruit (kind of tropical), light spice, brett funk, and oak. Really nice refreshing, bright beer. I love it.

SilkymuthafuckinTodd popped this late in the day at bas release and it was a fantastic choice for late in the day. Bright hazy light amber with small white head. Nose is bright sunshine and polka dot bikini at the beach on a 19 year old coed. Taste is tart heavenly goodness and a flowing summer skirt as the sun sets over the pacific. Love it.

Crisp sour bretty nose with a touch of spice beneath. Whitish tinted yellow, whispy white above. Berliner weisse looking. Crisp, sour flavors...remarkably clean and refreshing, seriously...even a touch salty around the edges...way more a super sour berliner than a witbier...I mean, I think I detected some of the spices in the nose but flavorwise is all crisp clean sourness...citrusy, lactic, bretty...this is a god damned fantastic beer. Thanks to lushawn for the bottle.

A: The pour is a very pale straw color with a large white head. S: Smells interesting. Mild tart with a heavy hand on the lemon aromas. Quite a bit of floral qualities to it with a mild funk and oak, perhaps a little lacto. There’s plenty of oak and a touch of white wine. T: The flavor is not too shabby. Heavy on the grass, hay, and lemon zest. Fairly funky and rather strong on the oak. Mild wine and vanilla, some hints of fruit in there as well. Maybe a little bit of pineapple. M: Fairly light in body with a high level of carbonation and a dry finish. O: This was surprisingly good. While all of the barrel aged beers from Cisco have been enjoyable, this one was a bit above the rest.

Bottle. Poured into a Snifter glass a slightly cloudy pale straw yellow color with a slight white coastered white head. An interesting aroma, some peach, pear, and spice. Tart apricot peach flavors in the flavor. Minimal spice as well. The oak is there but pretty minimal. Much more fruit forward than I thought it would be. Light mouthfeel with some carbonation. Ends with a lingering drawn out dry apricot taste. Refreshing, great for summer.

750ml bottle. Poured a medium and hazy yellow color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of stale lemon rinds, steaming pile of manure, earthy, woody, and funky. Tastes of lemons, oak, brett, funk, and citrus. Lightly sweet with a nicer tart finish.
