1L Swingtop growler...Aromas of must and barnyard funk , followed by hints of fruity farmstand. Smells reminiscent of a traditional gueuze, they’ve hit the nail on the head here. Hay, banana and peach tastes are present, followed by a citrus acidity and a light enamel burn, likely from the lemon The taste is subtle and warming, experiencing lots of lactic acid, a faint yoghurt essence is present in the finish. Dealing with something very special here. Big thanks to Brad at Jackie O’s for this one!

One of my favorites from the One Funky Afternoon Fest. Hazy gold pour with a fluffy white head and drippy lace. Aroma is lemon zest, funk and pedio. Loads of funk, lemon zest, Acidic and very reminiscent of a nice lemon aid. Dusty dry finish. Winner Winner

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the One Funky Afternoon Release. Served in a tulip.
Pours a light apricot color with a good white head and some lacing as it goes down. The nose has a good amount of funk along with some slight sourness. Citrus and a bit of lemon rind couple with some light grain and a good Brett presence. Taste brings moderate funk and slight sourness plus some slightly-tart lemon skin. Mild stone fruits in the background. Good light feel with a crisp, dry finish that is lightly acidic. A really nice and drinkable brew.
Serving type: on-tap

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sample at One Funky Afternoon at Jackie O’s on 04/02/2011: This beer is a slightly cloudy orange color with a thin off-white head that burns away to nothing rather quickly. Spotty lacing. The aroma is very lemony with touches of yeast. Medium body with a citrusy lemon flavor and something...else. A pox on JaBier for muttering the words "pool water" because there is definitely an aspect of chlorine. Slight malt presence too. The finish is more of the same. A rare miss for Jackie O’s.

This poured a cloudy yellow color with a white head. Aroma was just straight lemon and chemicals. Flavor was straight lemon pledge, not good.

Sampled during One Funky Afternoon on 4/2/11. Hazy orange pour with no head. Aroma of lemons, a bit of sweetness and lots of funk. Sour lemon flavor with a bit of malty sweetness and a character that I can only describe as chlorine.

On tap into a sample glass. Appearance is hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is lemons and brett, a tad herbaceous as well. Taste is sour initially fading to a nice lemon taste. Lemon isn’t the super bitter, shocking taste you get when you bit into a lemon, but more the sweet taste that follows the initial shock. Medium bodied and pretty quaffable.

From Kan at RBSG 10. Thanks! Pours an orangey burnt gold with a fluffy head. Nose is firm citrus and earthy grain notes. A touch musty and Brett filled. Could use a bit more Brett depth. Leather and Acid. A suggestion of vinegar as well. Mostly lactic. On taste, sharp sourness that is faded into a leathery earthiness. Pretty well balanced. Solid Sour.
