[ Keg ][ 6oz ][ @GI Clybourn ][ $4 ][ Snifter ][ 11.17.14 ]
Tepid, hazy translucent straw, thin white ring. Dusty nose, hoppy paper, light lactic, lemon too heavy. Spritzy front palate is heavy lemon, estery dough mid and not enough grain, faintest lactic way too low alongside high sweetness, acidity low in short, flabby finish, watery and thin despite biting carbonation with light minerality.

Labeled as with lactose and Brett. Poured a hazy straw yellow with a white head. Aroma was of lemon juice, wheat and light Brett. Flavor similar, light lemony grainy and refreshing.

TheAlum (6991) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2012 Draft on tap at Goose Island Mini Golf Event (Chicago, IL). Pours a rich vibrant glowing golden yellow hue, good haze, some straw elements. A frothy brighter white head laces small as it films. Aromas are tart and fruit. Gentle lactic presence, some pear, crab apples, and lemons. Some bready sweet malts, touches of banana. Pretty fruity. Initial is smooth and creamy, a lighter body but fairly vibrant in fruity elements. Some banana, apples, and gentle vanilla, yogurt really comes firmly. Gentle sweetness grows, a touch of dryness. A lot of 312 mellow sweetness still shows life, with mellow fruity pear, apple, touches of yogurt grow further, creamy and gentle lactic, but just gentle tartness, like a natural yogurt. Backend and finish is touches of lemon, crisp bready malt dryness, grains. Not bad, but seems to be lacking as far as the style. Mellow dry influence. Mellow tartness, yogurty lactic elements. Ok, but as far as the style seems a bit behind the pack.
