4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice and unique! Pours a very cloudy golden with a huge fluffy head. Fun and lively aroma, with a touch of sour-apply doughy yeastiness, a touch of old barn funk and quite a bit of tropical fruit, namely mango and pineapple. The flavor starts out with some fluffy sweetness with notes of pineapple and banana, and doughy yeastiness, blending into a medium acidic middle and dry finish. High carbonation gives this a little extra sharpness and moves things along nicely. Fine beer!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy yellow gold hue, with a frothy white head, yeasty, fruity nose of star fruit and lime, with a juicy floral hop citrusy accent, a subtle tartness and mustiness, even some brettanomyces, great! in a good way, in my case, with a mild hop leafiness accent in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a zesty, yeasty, citrusy lime character, with a nice spicy herbal hop note, with an acidic fruitiness, hint of wild yeast tartness, a bit grassy, leading towards a citrus, dry leafiness hop bitterness finish.

Bottle. Hazy golden pour with huge white head. Frothy like a Belgian saison. Spice aroma, not full. Taste of citrus, spice and hop, not much malt. Spicy, citrus finish, again much like a Belgian.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2009 12 oz. Bottle, pours a hazy yellow like a golden lemon juice with honey and orange scribbles, a huge head of white foam appeared on top, I found with aging the bottle the head was subdued a little, the bubbles still are thick, foamy and dense though even after storing for about six months, sour citrus scent, a faint malt fragrance, lemon, grapefruit and orange fragrances, faint spices, yeast and wood scents, I noticed a funkiness on the nose after the ale approached room temperature, taste is sour, tart, grapefruit and orange citrus with grape skins on the tongue, faint wood flavor, faint soft malt flavor and pepper in the finish, very dry on the palate, mouth feel is very bubbly, lively and playful on the palate.
