3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Bruce. It pours lightly hazy gold with a small white head. The nose is musty, dank, barnyard, manure, sulphur, spice and fart. The taste is crisp, tart, lemon, grapefruit, sherbet, alka seltzer, some soap with a dry, citric finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Smells a bit musty, but the taste makes up for it. As with the other version no great depth, but pretty tasty.

Bottle cheers to Colin. Pours hazy bright orange with a small, firm white head. Nose is Brett forward with pear, straw, zest, pepper, sherbert and light sugar. Taste is big and bright citrus fruits with moderate piney hops under a funky but clean citric sweet base. Mild grass and spice comes through the tarty funk. Touch sugary. Nice stuff

Thanks to Allen for the share on this one. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is some sweet citrus, some earthy brett, some pineapple, and some burlap with lingering citrus. Flavor is similar with earthy brett, barnyard, some sweet citrus, and some lingering sweetness on the finish. Light to medium in body and a nice wild overall.

Bottle thanks to Armin, pours a hazy gold with a thin head, aroma has touches of citrus and barnyard at the same time, a little bit of funk mixed in as well, the flavor is really tart on the front end with some brett and yeast in the finish, a little bit of must and dirt as well, the citrus comes through as well with the fruit, really nice, I need to track down the summer in a few months.

(This is summer, barcode got it wrong)Hazy off golden color with tiny white lacing. Lemon sour nose with funky wheat, brett. Taste starts with lemon at the back which opens up all around your mouth in to a nice dry tartness, also on top of that there is earth, funk, grapefruit, citric acid. Finishes dry and tart, refreshing. Beautiful, I want more!
