From notes. Pours golden straw, thin fizzy white head. Nose is tart and sweet, almost Chardonnay like. Flavor is of sweet fruit with some funk, green apple, apricot, mango, a bit of tart mild vinegar. Light body with high carbonation. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Private pour at EBF lecture session. Hazy Light copper with a light tan head. Lots of fresh tropical fruit (although no idea what paw paw is but I would guess that is what it is), bit of funk and definitely Brett. Good strong carbonation, medium body, tart and sour, very dry, mango sweetness towards the end to balance things out a bit. Very nice.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, big thanks to Aaron for the pour! Pour is hazy orange with thin white head, aroma has notes of pineapple, biscuit, mango, some slight caramel notes in there as well, hints of funk. Taste is a really nice mix of pineapple, lemon, lactic acid, hints of biscuit and bread, touch of tropical fruit, finishes a bit sweet, tart, and fairly dry. Nice stuff!

This poured a semi cloudy darker yellow color with a white head. Aroma was lots of tart citrusy and fleshy fruit, light brett and funk too. Flavor was much the same, medium tartness, a bit grainy and fruity.

Bottle Ö Mostly clear and golden with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. Spicy, fruity bouquet Ė apple, pear and apricot Ė some paw paw as well. Medium-bodied and coarse with prickly carbonation. The flavor is tart, fruity and a bit yeasty. Paw paw is like the official fruit of West Virginia. Itís never caught on, but Iím a fan.

22 ounce bottle that pours a hazy yellow color with a soury/tart aroma that had a touch of citrus funkyness. Flavors of tart, sour fruit, and a touch of spice. Interesting beer that after each sip made me wanting more.
