3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Blind Tiger. Aroma is softer than the first two beers, nice spiciness and a soft grassy/straw flavour. Fairly soft with a nice light tartness. Flavour is decent. A soft lightly cooling minty character. Light tropical citrus with a bit of cherry and lean pale malts. Crackery and lean with a touch of lemony flavour. Nice beer... but I think I prefer the clausenii and lambicus versions.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught @ BTAH. Pours hazy light yellow, thin white head. Nose is light, bit of crisp wheat and citrus, and a very subtle, round, lactic sour note. Flavor is again light, with some very light grassy hops peeking through, crisp wheat a a hint of lemon, with the lacto showing up with a round, almost off-sweet lightly sour note. My favorite of three variants. Very subtle, but my god, I could have drank it all night, and been happy doing so. Light body, lightly reserved carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the Blind Tiger Goose Island Event: Pours a hazy light golden with a fading white head. Has a crisp aroma- sweet lemon peel, tart-ish wheaty notes, and a Belgian estery presence (No funkiness) Crisp and fairly light feel to the body, with a mild tartness in the flavor. Some lemon peel character, with just a brief lactic suggestion. The yeast profile leans to sweet esters, slightly bubblegum-like. The finish has a decent hop character offering a succinct citrusy bitterness. Not bad, it just didn’t have any surfaced funkiness or sour character. Middle of the road yeast character.
