3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750, corked and baled. Thanks, C! Pours a murky dark goldenrod. Dense creamy white head that sticks around. Big eggy nose, super funky, showing earthy minerals. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Earthy, caramel, a bit of salt, some lemon, and lots of egg yolk on the mid palate. Long earthy eggy finish. Still very crisp and refreshing and approachable once you get past the eggy intensity of the nose. Lovely beer. Would drink again and again.

Bottle shared by Jim, thanks! Pours a hazy deep gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a really nice funky note with underlying grapes and a touch of earthy grains. Flavor starts with light fruits with sweet grains and has a really nice funky finish.

Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a huge fluffy white head. Aroma is musty with notes of oak and lemon. Taste is Brett and citrus with an earthy finish. Palate is incredibly dry and practically evaporates in your mouth. This is nice and funky without being over the top.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Pale, semi-opaque gold with a firm lasting head.
N: Plenty of earth, pine, banana. Some mustiness. Lemon and oak. Very well balanced with its floral and wood elements.
T: Soured and quite bitter. Really falls apart for me here. Wood adds another bite. Too many hops, not enough malt balance. Yeast and funk are prevalent.
M: Crisp, but biting. Feels like this is stretched out too far on the tongue.
O: Not my favorite example of the style. Leans too far towards the funk and oak without any balance to bring it back to enjoyable.
