Bottle courtesy of adnielsen. Thanks bro! Pours a clear yellow with big white head. Grainy, fruity, tart, peppery aromas. Ginger, pepper, fruity flavors. Interesting beer, a lot going on in this one. But it doesn’t do it for me.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bomber into a cute little flute glass. It is a cloudy, pale yellow with a ultra thin and bubbly white head. Smells first of funky/barnyard then of spices- pepper and cinnamon?, hard to say- then a citrusy scent. The taste is a new combination for me. There is a slightly tart front, pepper, light fruit taste and a great, highly carbonated palate. For some reason I want to say there is cinnamon in this brew but I’m not sure. Maybe it is the ginger they mention in the description.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Chalky blond and an effervescent white head. Tart, lactic aroma of bright fruit, ginger and pepper. Light to medium bodied with full flavor, still tart , but also malty and spicey. Nicely dry and lemony in the finish with just the right touch of ginger. I can’t tell what the other reviews were complaining about, maybe it needed the full 6 months in the bottle. It’s like a tripel with apricot. This beer is tasty, complex and well-structured.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2012 Bottle... Hazy yellow ale with a mid-sized, wispy, white head. Great retention. The aroma furnishes lemon with subtle undertones of barnyard funk and spicy farmhouse yeast. Light to medium-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor is mildly acidic and citrusy, but is a touch too sweet to really wrap my lips around. Finishes crisp and refreshing at first, then cracker malt sweetness lingers and nearly ruins the entire experience for me. More time in the bottle may improve this one... or not.

Bottle at Dadtoberfest. Hazy gold with a white head. Peachy sweetness, light peppery spices, with some funky/musky notes in the background. I don’t know what the hell is going on here, but it’s pretty good.
