3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Sim rate (on tap at Beachwood BBQ, Seal Beach): Lovely, lovely beer, and I promise it’s not only the just-arrived-in-LA holiday high. Aroma is sour with a real woodiness, barnyardy and funky. Tastes similar, with a sherbert sweetness that tops it off. Really enjoying it.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Monk’s Kettle. Deep amber-tan pour, slightly tart lactic aroma with a soft malt sweetness. A touch of light soft fruitiness. A bit of raspberry and woody sort of vineousness. Some light earthiness and a touch of soft spice. Really thirst-quenching. A little bit of cherry as well. Delicious.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy, lowly carbonated orange color with almost no head. Nice fruitiness to the nose. Interesting peach aroma, strawberry, melon, and a fair amount of bread and straw. A nice citrus quality to it overall and moderate tartness. Tastes strongly of peach yogurt and melon. A nice sourness, some mild straw, oak, and malt sweetness, too. Good citrus flavor, too. Pretty nice, actually.
