4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Shared with a few brewers at Allagash...Pours a slightly hazy blondish yellow color with a finger or so of white noisy fizz that leaves quickly. Aromas are rustic horsehair, straw, touches of barnyard funk and a little tart lemon citrus. On the palate this beer sing to me... yes in tune and finely balanced I feel for this bottle. So much going on but it takes your attention to find the details... sour tart fruit mingle with wet basement touches and farmhouse funk ! YUM... gonna have to find more CO people to trade with !

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle shared by pineypower. Poured a hazy straw yellow with a smaller bubbly white head. Aroma is awesome, loads of sourness, old lemons, burnt rubber, eraser shavings, fruity, barrel and acidity. The body seemed watery on first sip but upon having a few more sips and slight warming it’s more of a medium body with average to slightly stronger carbonaton, lingering acidity on the end. Flavor of sour lemons, fruity, wet hay, acidity. After realizing this one is only 4.2% it makes me say wow.

Bottle shared by levifunk...thanks Levi! - Pours hazy pale yellow with a ring of white head. Tons of fruit on the nose--mango, pear, kiwi--just a melange of sweet tropical fruit. Light tart vinegar sourness. Taste is much of the same fruit, lots of mineral, drying sourness and a nice tart finish. Medium body with a lot of carbonation. Great stuff.

Tasting courtesy of dschiller. Pours a lovely light straw color with a nicely carbonated head. Aromas are barnyard, moss, grass and spices. Flavors are very reminiscent of a saison, with Belgian style spice notes (clove, coriander, etc) that fade nicely into a salty, lemon and grass aftertaste that is very refreshing. Palate is nice though a lot of the carbonation seems to fade before it hits the tongue which is somewhat of a letdown. Overall this is a stellar easy drinking beer that would be awesome for hot days in Arizona.

Cloudy pale yellow, white head. Very tart aroma, chalk, roasted lemons. Flavor is light, fluffy, yeasty, very light sour and funk. So easy to drink.

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Lemony, tart, funky, dusty, medium acidity, and a wheaty base. Very nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle via trade. Pours out a pretty clear golden color with a solid amount of carbonation and a small fading white head. Aroma is of lots of funk, sourt tartness, lactic acid, horseblanket and some light oak. Taste is very complex for such a low ABV, a nice funky sour taste with a solid amount of acidic tartness, light lemons, hay, barnyard and some oak. Great beer

Sour but fruity aroma. Cloudy subdued appearance. A pleasant ’sour’. Almost too pleasant for a sour. Hmmm...

Sample at Papsoe’s courtesy of adnielsen.
Looks like pear juice, no head. Smells of pear and lemon. Quite sour, lemon and peark, crisp and clean, really nice beer.

Bottle courtesy of James at his November 2012 tasting. Pours a bright hazy golden yellow with no head. Aroma is tart funk and lemon. Mouthfeel is tart and puckering with notes or sour fruit, zesty lemon, funky citrus. Awesome.
