Tasting at Chez Bruce. Thanks to Bruce. Very light haze on this pale gold beer. Small bubbly white head. Light crisp palate, slightly dry. Very slight soapy note. Minerally lemon. Bitter floralness. Light dry finish. The sourness burns a little after the swallow.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Bruce. Pours mostly clear, orange-gold with a frothy, white head. Great aroma, lots of pale wood, peach, lemon. Light sweet flavor with some grass, lemon rind, a bit of rubber, soft funk. Light bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Lightly sweet to finish, oily, with more citrus, light rubber, hints of tart lemon. Smells good but the flavor and texture don’t follow on that well.

Bottle shared by westmeister at his house. Much funkier than the hop savant we just had. Dry and fruity with a bit of wood and earth flavors. Finish is dry again with lots of light tropical fruits. A little more entertaining and engaging here.

Cumming Tasting. On the heel of Hop Savant this showed an obvious lack of hops, but it was worlds different. Dry funk, brett, funk, tart, acidic, earthy vanilla wood. Very nice.
