Sampled at an esbls tasting. Brett is prominent in the flavor. Softer fruit and some mild bitterness. Earthiness. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a slightly hazy orange yellow with a fizzy three finger head that settles and laces fairly quickly.... on the nose its funky but subtle... barnyard earthy spice and hay, bubblegum, cinnamon, citrus. Good carbonation with a medium to full mouthfeel fading into a slightly watery but bitterfunk finish. The palate is well balanced with a complex array of grassy citrus hops played well off funky yeast. Tasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Poured orange with a white head. This beer really under-impressed me. Lots of hop tones, cascade and citra came through especially for me. Citrus and piney. The mouthfeel felt dry and over attenuated. Some light fruits and yeast spice. Sort of meh.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
FC Nordsjælland vs. Chelsea FC Champions League football night tasting in Odense, October 2012. Hazy golden with a lasting white head. Funky aroma with grapefruit and tangerine peel, some leather and barnyard, a hint of pineapple, and undeniably a touch of urinals... Dry and bitter with some green leaves flavour, pineapple, grapefruit and pine. Not entirely in harmony

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours dishwater gold with a slight off-wite head. Aroma of fruit and citrus with a fair dose of sour. Med minus body. Flavor is citrus, earthy, sour over light caramel, with a rebound to something like a citrusy IPA. Finishes with light sour all over. Very light.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours dirty golden with a modest off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a very fruity flavor over a thin slightly sour pale malt base. Not much carbonation. Refreshing but not particularly interesting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at OL&R. Hazy gold, wispy white head with floating thin ring. Nose is light toast with heavy candied orange, bubble gum sweetness but held in check to add pleasant balance. Heavy toast and iron front and mid suppress experience, light orange and oil bitterness through the slippery finish, soft body allows for strong elements to dominate, but enough present to create an experience.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Stockholm Beer 2012: En ganska torr och trevlig doft med tydlig humle. Smaken är lite mer tillbakelutad men det är en frisk och trevlig öl.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at SBWF 2012.
Hazy orange with a small white head. This was a special one. Brett and citrus both in the aroma and taste. Also yeast, fruit, some spices and cellar. Quite refreshing in a strange way. I was not totally convicted but it certainly had some charm.
