Mora2000 (5705) - McKinney, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2014
On tap at Pinthouse Pizza. Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has some tart lemon and wheat notes. The flavor is very similar. The lemon notes go well with a bit of grass and yeast character. There is also a bit of cherry in the flavor. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

brenn79 (1522) - Idaho, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Free draft fill at Enoteca - Pours hazy golden with a massive white head and sheeting lace. Aroma is strong in brett, lactose is there, funky and tart. Taste is similar, only less intense, nice okay character. Body and mouthful is a little thin and carbonation is soft, but massively drinkable. Awesome!

kidmartinek (3655) - austin, Texas, USA - SEP 10, 2014
5oz pour for $6.50 at Pinthouse... hazed, multihued gold. Foamy white head is 3/8". Aroma is banana and white oak. Flavor is banana and.white oak too with a browner banana and a spicy finish. The palate carries a pleasant fizziness. A great desert.

DesertDevil (528) - Arizona, USA - SEP 9, 2014
12.7-oz. bottle. Sour green apple highlights the aroma with spicy pear, white wine and light French oak. Pours very light and crystal-clear yellow (like Chardonnay) with no head. The taste features a fruity and mild spicy blend with green apple, sublime vinous white grapes, sweet vanilla bean, a heavy floral bite to finish. Light body. A decent wild saison.

slowrunner77 (2131) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Stunned at how much was going on in this low abv beer. The barrel character alone was so complex (think Cigar City White Oak, chardonnay and a splash of bourbon). tropical fruit and rustic funk/twang on the nose and flavor. Deeeelicious. Velvety smooth feel. Seems like past incarnations were 3.8-4.3%, but man, this was just about perfect. Glad I got to try it."

phaleslu (6509) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Draft at Kaiser Tiger. Pours a hazed orange-gold with a finger of barely off-white head. Notes of big bretty funk, oak, lemon, florals, grass, bread, white grapes, vanilla, straw, and apricot. Light-medium bodied, with a funky, mildly tart mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Drier and sweeter than expected, which balances out the funk and tartness well. Really well crafted.

Hazy gold pour with a white head. Tart, acidic, lemon, wood, and cheese. Great palate, sour, citrus, lemon, funk and yeast.
