Ontape (150) - Valley Village, California, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Bomber. Good not great, but very solid for a 4.5% ABV brew. Pours an opaque light orange with light head. Smell has considerable funky yeast and bugs -- right up my alley -- plus a hint of whiskey. Taste doesn’t quite deliver on that promise, more of a light saison with a moderate funk and sour but nothing serious -- not a ton of flavor here. A bit watery and pretty thin. This would be a good noon beer on a hot Saturday, drinking it after a DIPA on a chilly autumn night was probably the wrong idea -- oh well. I’ll probably pick up another one and try to do it right next time.

jstraw (1900) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Murky orange with big, flotsam, white head, fine lacing / Delicate nose of orchard, citrus & tropical fruit, straw, spice, brett / Medium body, delicate fruit and lightly sweet, somewhat watery, solid but not dramatic hopping, but dry in the middle, with good bitter finish / Mild flavors of pineapple, orange, apple, straw, coriander, light barnyard / As with most of these low abv things, the weak body ultimately lets the whole thing down, with the nose the highlight of the experience. Not sure really what the point is of a low abv 750. Make it the proper gravity, and share if need be.

Bottle, smell is citrusy , color is hazy yellow gold, taste is crisp citrus with a little sour, finishes clean with a little sour lemon lingering. Nice summer beer but wish there was more substance to it.....it just seems a little bland.

jookos (1522) - FINLAND - SEP 28, 2013
Bottled. Orange hazy. Fresh sharp citrus, malts and wheaty notes. Fresh, a bit acidic body. Dry with some peppery spices in the finish. Ok, but not really my thing.

RexTalionis (2117) - FINLAND - SEP 27, 2013
Bottled version. Pours dark hazy orange with a thinnish head. Funky, sweet, some wild grass and wild strawberry notes in aroma. Wild strawberry sweetness, some light grassyness in flavor. Really smooth mouthfeel. Easy drinking and quite nice tasting brew.

Jow (1862) - New York, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Grabbed a 750ml with dinner at Hoppy Monk, El Paso (one of my new favorite places). Pours orange tinged yellow with white this head. Nose of tart lemons and fresh grass. Lightly tart not overly puckering and you get citrus, brett, barnyard, white wine, woodsy, herbal, grassy, and white pepper. drying finish and very refreshing and wonderfully drinkable

Thin white head that sorta sticks around. Hazy, gold hued brew. Nose is a lil spicy, tart and earthy. Body is lightly medium, spritely carbonation. Nicely tart, woody and citrusy notes. Whisky keeps you off balance wonderin wtf it is. apply and juicy, catches you after awhile. Neat brew. Sip it up. mikeyg83 deliver shtis one, thanks bro!
