wedgie9 (2633) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 3, 2014
From the 2012 Cellar Reserve
Tasted on 1/3/14 from a waxed and capped 375mL bottle, big thanks to adnielsen for being a great trustee. Pours hazy orange/golden with a thick white head that slowly recedes to average, sticky lace. The nose is super sour and funky/earthy with a bunch of citrus and white wine vinegar, and a very unique tropical and citrus hops aroma. The flavor is almost exactly as the nose would have suggested, with a bit more caramel malt and vanilla barrel character, but the same sour citrus, white wine vinegar, and tropical fruit hops. The body is medium with some nice barrel tannin, lively, nearly sparkling, carbonation, and a long sour citrus and tropical hops finish. This beer is really great, the only beers close I’ve ever had were Cuvee des Champions and Le Terroir, but I find this to be a bit more balanced than both.

Bootle at a ßar
Pours a lightly hazy yellow color with a nice head & good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is like lime zest & some melon along with the ol’ tried & true barnyardy things. Bright, funky & inviting.

The flavor is dry, very citric, fruit forward & lightly bitter. Lemony & plessntly sour with a nice fruity hoppiness. But Sheesh, it’s lime forward af!

Cool

phaleslu (9380) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2016
Bottle from Craft Beer Cellar-Clayton. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a small fizzy white head that settles into a ring and some spotty film. Looks somewhat like a carbonated white wine. Notes of pear, lemon, apple, white grapes, cheesecloth, yogurt, oak, and vanilla. Light-bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a clean, dry, tart mouthfeel. These guys are so consistent; this is no exception.
