4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draught. Pours a slightly hazy tan color with a small white head on there. Nose is sour and fruity, with a nice bit of funk to it, and seems very fresh. Taste is slightly sour with some great farmhouse elements, and again is light and fresh. Very smooth. Me gusta.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at BeerMongers, who knows when. From notes. Pours hazy gold, min ring of white head. Aroma full on vinegar (like, straight white - no, maybe cider. Still, something out of my kitchen cupboard). Overwhelms anything else. Maybe some funk / blanket / manure beneath. Taste: lightly toasted cereal finish. Vinegar is light (surprisingly). Lemon, oak tannins, some light fruitiness; lactic. Palate: light body, soft carbonation. Overall: this is interesting - wish the nose and mouth agreed a bit bitter, and there was a bit more carbonation, but nice. 7/4/7.5/3/14.5

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at SB. Pours a cloudy medium amber with a loose white head and lots of stringy lace. Bright tangy nose, showing juicy orange notes along with some subtle minerally counterpoints. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Orange pith and peel on the mid palate, along with juicy sweet oranges, minerals, and subtle candied lemon as well. Crisp clean finish. Wonderful beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at World of Beer. Appearance: finger white head, light cloudy, straw color, light lacing. Aroma: floral hops, oak, light funky yeast. Palate: light body, average carbonation, bitter finish. Taste: sweet fruit into tartness with oak and floral dry hop finish. Overall, super unique, complex, but not a truly impressive beer despite this. Slightly watery and somewhat overdone. I enjoy regular Opal more.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2014 bottleshare thanks to Beechner224. At the splash down party. Very sour. Tart. Slightly floral. Ok. (7/4/7/3/15=3.5)
Rerate thanks to a bottle from Justin. Nose is amazing citrus and light tartness. Taste is light citrus with a floral note. Not as sour as I initially rated. very enjoyable. The citrus really shines with a bit of zest and pithiness, a light tannin and woody note as well. No chest burning hurt...yet. good stuff!
