GABF 2012. Multiples pours over the first two days. Pours a clear pink appearance with a pink head. Juicy watermelon jolly rancher aroma and flavor. Fairly tart, but this impeccably tasted like a fucking jolly rancher. Kind of cool.

Generously shared by brystmar over lunch. Batch two.
Poured a pink jolly rancher color with a sweet and sour smell. Taste was sour, sweet pear with a watermelon jolly rancher finish. This is my first try at freetail and am left with One of the most unique flavor profiles i have tasted in a beer. Would def like to see what a few yrs of aging does to this one

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
22oz bottle pours a hazy, grapefruit pink color with one ring of white head. Nose is weird, rhubarb jam, bread and butter pickles, dill, watermelon. Flavor is the same, dill pickles, vegetables, cucumbers, carrot, vinegar. It’s like drinking pickled rhubarb. Acidic finish.

Rubay amber pour with a thin white head. Grassy watermelon, loam, and hints of cider dominate. Very candy like throughout. In a word: Watermelon Jolly Rancher. Medium palate, high levels of carbonation and a dry finish.

Thanks to nimbleprop. Hazy ruby/orange pour. Nose is quite vegetive, but the flavor brings more nice watermelon, grass, manure, and sour Warheads. Quite crisp, effervescent palate, still very sweet. Not bad, but not awesome.

Bottle shared by nimbleprop. Pours clear strawberry with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with no lacing. Aroma is watermelon, strawberry, wet grass, light straw malt and low hops. Flavor is fruity, seedy, grassy, light malt, low bitterness, lemon, and a dry finish. Light body, low warmth, and medium carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
transparent ruby grapefruit, thin white large bubbles ring. Nose is tangy, sharp fruit with grapefruit, light egg and salt. Flavor is sweeter, more juice through finish, odd salty sardine notes in nose with warmth. Fruity, light, sweeter but pleasantly sour.

651mL thanks to nimbleprop. The pour is a glowing, hazy rose. Small white head. Nose is 100% dill pickle with the aceto vinegar, dill, mustard seed, everything! Uncanny. Taste is mild cherry, bit acetic vinegar character. Mild graininess and mash. Eh- not a big fan.
