4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Rob for the trade. Shared with Smelliot, Jackson and Adza. Pours like blended lemons with a thick white head which lasts the duration. Nose is lemon curd central - massive lemon and zest with a moderate sourness with plenty of brett focus to it. Taste is very lemon curd driven, clean and refreshing, very bretty and zesty. My first impression was overly zest driven but as my palate gets used to it, the brett starts to drive the beer. Summer in a glass. Very good

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Khyber Pass. Very hazy yellow gold that started with some fizzy white foam that largely disappeared. Lots of pleasant lemon juice, pith and zest. More sour than expected but not over the top. Nicely juicy. Mild toasted wheat beer flavors in the background. Only a touch of farmhouse funk. Largely a big full citrus, mostly lemon, glass of goodness!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2014 Obtained in a trade. Thx! 750 ml. bottle split by 4 @ “The Tasting formerly known as Mons RBBAG I (2014)”. Bottled on 07/2014. Hazy citrus with no head. Nose is citrus, lightly tart, brett, sour bacteria, very HF, unique mix. but not best possible one. Taste is straightforward, lightly sour, tart citrus, tad lactic sorbet, wheat, lemon drops, brett, strong wheat presence,… Low carbonation & very easy to drink. Quite lovely but overrated all the same as usual.

750ml bottle. Hazy golden with a one-finger white head. Funky Belgian wheat aroma, slight citrus. The flavor is nice and wheaty with lemon and funk. Mildly tart. Fairly full carbonation with medium body. Good beer, as expected!

This poured a hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma was of light lemon acid, wheat, earth, and sand. Flavor was lightly spicy, Belgian whit character, some wet rocks and light ability. Pretty solid.
