reebtogi (4363) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 15, 2014
750ml corked bottle (2013 - Bottle #7274) pours a slightly hazy golden color with a huge white head that retains quite well and leaves some spotted lacing behind. Aroma is lemons and lemon zest with some grains and woody notes. Taste is a lemon sourness with a malty and fruity sweetness finishing dry. Medium bodied with generous carbonation leaving a nice tingle on the palate. A good brew for the style.

joet (2222) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JUN 5, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2014 Golden with transient white foam, slightly hazy. Dried hay, earth, rustic aromas. Lemon and grapefruit. Soft acidity. Really opens up with increasing temperature. Very full aroma. Some woody character. Light astringency perhaps related to tannins. Dry, refreshing, drinkable. Finishes lightly sour. This is an amazing blend. In an evening of many other top notch beers, this was a great standout.
