ryecatcher (779) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 2, 2014
375 mL bottle. Pours a pale straw gold, nice fluffy white head with good retention and okay lacing. Nose is fruity, big and barnyard funky, like George Clinton in a Stetson, some hay, Brett, spice, chardonnay, white pepper and earthy goodness. Mouth is dry pleasantly tart, lemon zest, oaky, long lingering bitter undertones, some vanilla pokes it head in near the finish. Very nice.

cheap (4029) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2014
HAH, pretty funny for a 99. On tap at the magic tree. Oddly sweet aroma. Slight haze on a pale beer. This taste is very nice initially. Fun easy tartish beer fer sure. Better tasting than the smell. Has a slighter bitter medicine feel to it as the session continues. Could be a little more well behaved.

Hazy gold pour with a nice lasting white head. Aroma is funk, tart green apple, and spicy. Taste is tart citrus, funk, spice, and light lacto. Soft carbonation. Really nice beer.

This is quite the beer. Great balance of bretta with some light citrus. Light sour finish, but mostly kind of tart. Pours blonde with good head and lacing. Ingredients are subtle but excellently tendered. Tap at Churchkey.
