cheap (4017) - 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.

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.

Beerenberger (1425) - Fischer, Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2014
The dominate aroma is wild yeast - polite barnyard funk with suggestions of spice. A hazy golden amber pour with a white ring and no lacing. The palate is subdued barnyard, hints of cherries, oak, and white pepper. Light body and crisp dry carbonation. Overall, refined, tasteful and quite enjoyable.
