5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Straw colored, a bit hazy, small to moderate sudsy white head, little lacing.   Tart nose, oakish, slightly vinous in a white wine sense.   Has a soft wheaty aspect too.   Sour on the tongue, not brash, just about the right amount.   Seems pretty simple, not a lot of depth.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   As it warms I get a soft white grape like finish, with a little bit of oak.   This one, while simple, was pretty tasty!   Thanks Bill!

Sperine (283) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Bottle. This beers balance of tart, funk, and fruit is the stuff of my dreams. I received this in a trade and really hope that it reaches distribution out here in PA because I would stock up on this like crazy. I'm seeing Jester King around a lot more these days so things are looking good.

rodenbach99 (3078) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
Bouteille de 750ml. Bière blonde dorée avec une mousse blanche. Un nez intéressant de bois mouillé, de lambic et d’acide lactique. La bouche est sèche, ce qui la rend d’une digestibilité remarquable. Elle n’est pas trop acide, facile, très désaltérante. Elle offre un côté boisé blanc qui se mêle au blé de grande qualité. Par contre il y a une certaine âpreté en fin de bouche. 7/10

SlovakSniper (3036) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 27, 2013
Une bière dorée et son anneau mousseux volatile. Un nez de plantes et d’animaux, de peau de raisin, de poire dure et de pomme verte avec des effluves vanillées et un chêne qui perd des arômes de coco. Des saveurs aigrelettes, délicatement mordantes comme un jeune raisin blanc et bien acidulées comme une petite pomme surette qui pousse à l’orée des forêts de la belle campagne. Une bouche soumise au concept de la buvabilité. Une finale fruitée, aigre et boisée. Une bière facile à boire et amusante.

SudsMcDuff (5792) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - JUN 17, 2013
bottle- pours out amber light orange .. . medium headring, light refined lacing .. . mild sourness/tartness .. . tart hay, mild lemon rind, grain, and light odd dough .. . mouth feels alright, not super solid but something feels slightly off .. . drinks very easy though, enjoyed my bottle! .. . . I hate how spiders just sit there on the walls and act like they pay rent!

Hazy golden pour. Citrus and funky nose. Sour, but not overbearing - some fun elements of vanilla and spices in the taste.
