3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (375 ml). Thanks to Mark for this one! Slightly hazy yellow golden with a medium persistent white head and good lacing. Aroma is lemony (and other citrus) with brettanomyces, cheesy notes, wheat, light spices and light bitterness in the finish. Taste is also lemony with acidity from the wheat, brettanomyces and light spices. Light body, watery. Low carbonation. Dry mouthfeel. It’s a borderline Witbier/Sour, but it’s a good beer. Very dry. Super drinkable, quite refreshing and tasty.

On tap at the taproom. Pours a pale hazed yellow with a white head. Aroma of funk, citrus, mild spice. Nice brett and mild tart notes in the nose as well. Flavor is funky, dry, with some mild sweet citrus juice and spicing. Somewhat slick bodied, with spritzy carbonation. Finishes funky, with earth and spice notes. Interesting, pretty fun too.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I assume this is 2013 version, but not 100% certain.
Pours a light lemon ale wit a interesting pattern of white sheet atop - takes on a cheetah look with near concentric circles of break in the foam. Smells of manure, funk, soil, clay, hay, and some paper. Flavor is lemon, soil, tart, some of that minneola is coming through, some wit yeast and some light wheat character. I’m refreshingly surprised with the flavor here. Very light bodied with light prickly carb and an off dry finish. Fucking interesting beer. I know Brett isn’t supposed to form much acidity, and maybe it’s from the fruit, but damn this is refreshingly tart. A really excellent beer I was hoping would be only moderately tasty for the sake of my billfold. Great beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at the goodbye jcwatts rating adventure. Poured a not so good looking milky yellow body with a smaller foamy white head. Aroma was soapy, with some citrus notes, green olives from the brett. Tight bubbly carbonation over a medium mouthfeel and a fizzyness overall round up the palate. Flavor is probably the best part about this one, nice brett funk, oak, dry breads, toast, lemons, band aid and medicine. Not bad.
