Hazy, summer bronze with big bubbly head. Intensely tart, candi-tart aroma with barnyard notes. Effervescent body with prominent candi-tartness and slight barnyard notes. Crisp, titillating, and mildly enjoyable, but overall, not my thing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750, capped and foiled. Thanks, Scrizzz! Pours murky medium gold. Thin fizzy white head. Nice big lemony nose. Watery fizzy body. Nice tart lemony mid-palate with a mild, slightly tart finish. Very clean, organized, and drinkable, even if it doesn’t inspire a heap of desriptors. Delicious and refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Courtesy of MCLK. Pours hazy deep gold with lasting white head. The aroma is fruity, sweet/tart candi then moving toward crushed aspirin tartness. The taste is tart puckering tartness then moving into additional tartness just for good measure. It ends dry and less tart than it started, thankfully. Overall this is too tart for my tastes but finishes up very nice and refreshing.

Big lemon and green apple aromas. Something light and sweet about it. Very tight, maybe a little to much. Hugely lemony, sour and full on. Very grapefruity, full on, good but a little over the top. Great little champagne carbonation with a saliva inducing sourness. Pretty nice but not as delicate as one would hope.

Had some of this (from the bottle) at a recent sours tasting. Colour... golden and highly effervescent with a frothy off-white head. Nose... delicately sour with a hint of yeast and apple. Palate... a burst of carbonation on the front of the palate, some brett, yeast, wood, citrus, pippin apple, and a very short, crisp finish.

Bottle, courtesy someone. Clear golden yellow pour, big cloudy white head and very thick lacing. Very bright aroma, yeast, grain, slight tart notes, lemon and lime. Flavor has sharp tartness, some brett, citrus, some sticky elements in the finish. Medium-bodied, complex and very drinkable. Delicious.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2010 Sampled at DLD ’09. Poured a hazy straw gold with a substantial and lasting white head. Aroma of yeast, grass, and fruit (peach and citrus.) Taste has just the amount of sourness built on a cereal base. Bubbly and dry. Great way to start the day. (Re-Rate after another taste at RBSG ’10.) I love this beer.
