Cask at SmallBar Fullerton (Chicago, IL) for BeerMapping’s 5th Anniversary. Pours a murky glowing golden yellow, some darker notes, huge frothy cakey whitish head laces ok, stays huge. Aromas scream of a Wit base, coriander and orange peel mix with wheaty grains, light brett and tart lemon, mellow tangy cactus pear, flourishes of dust and light lactic acid, white pepper, still quite green around the edges but getting there with a decent touch of tartness. Initial is light bodied and mellow, touches of lemony tartness, mellow coriander spice, wheat grains, light tart sourness, lemon and cactii, cereal, bread, light tartness. A touch prickly with gentle spritzy carbonation. The cactus pear melds well, a mellow fruit with some funny sweetness, a wit base, light tartness and lactic character. Ok.. We’ll see what more time does with this one. Wheaty and lightly spiced, younger tartness. Still, hope to see what this bad boy does.

Cask pour at smallbar Fullerton... Pours a hazy peach hued pour with what started to be a medium fluffy white head which quickly dispersed... Semi-soury aroma but more of an earthy bent along the lines of soft pear and an apricot sensibility. Was expecting a bit more acidity slash tartness overall... Flavors are more on the earthy muted side with lighter dried fruit accents, pear I guess but not too distinguishing. Seems like a wheat base with an almost banana sublayer which diminished after awhile. Carbonation was more active than I expected for a cask ale to be. Def not as sour or tart as it should be and it served much to be more subdued overall.
