3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Capped 750 from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours hazy dark gold with a slight foamy off-white head. Aroma is a strange earthiness mixed with citrus. Med body. It’s earthy, and citrus, but it has a rather strong dose of phenolics. I don’t think this is infection - not a nasty sour thing - but rather unusual. Maybe it’s the rye reacting with the yeast.

Draught at Churchkey, recommendation from Sam. Clear orange, white edge head, good lacing. Aroma is sour orange peel and bubblegum, very nice. Taste is disappointing, sour start followed by unbalanced sweet bitterness. Oh well.
