3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very light tangerine color with big bubbled white head. Aroma is wine, cheese, bread, hay and ginger. Taste is the same to a lesser extent with a very forward tartness. It’s very light on the palate and finishes pretty clean with a mild but persistent barnyard note.

750 corked n’ caged green bottle- Pours slightly hazy golden with a thin white head. Aroma is very herbal, tea, mint, lemony, tart and vinegar. The taste is tart, the tea is dialed back compared to the aroma, lemony and ginger is strong, acidic and vinegar. Good, wasn’t sure about this one, not bad at all.

THANK YOU Kraddel. Long time want. 750 ml. bottle sampled @ “The RARE Tasting”. Hazy golden, creamy white head. Nose is super milky with massive funk, raw, barn, raw lemon, vinegar, raw intense strange funk. Very milky vinegary taste, basic lactic & lemon sourness, lightly watery, lactic, very straightforward sourness. Funk is massive & strange but otherwise it is surprisingly very straightforward, funk is largely in the nose, very lactic sourness, very strong in the finish with vingar. Pretty decent, can pass for a decent USA sour.

Pours unclear yellowblonde, nearly no head. Smell is funky, some spice-like aspects ( guess its the tea) Taste is funky, very dry, sour, some lactic sourness, sourness isn’t too well balanced or complex though. the tea shines trough in a very herbal, spiced way. Nice, but not great to me.

A thin white film quickly fades away, leaving a glassy surfaced, hazy pool of glowing, golden-orange liquid. There is no lacing, and the carbonation appears to be almost nil. The aroma is quite unique, showing notes of tart apple, tangerine, and lemon, with both citric and lactic acidity. There’s a lightly cheesy, yeasty funk, along with hints of white grape skins and wild scuppernong. The nose rounds out with some fresh cereal sweetness, along with notes of dusty cinnamon and herbal white tea. Not all of those complexities play themselves out in the flavor, but the lacto-citric acidity is certainly there, as is the light cereal malt, crisp lemon, and floral-herbal spicing. The stuff is pretty darn tasty, and the light, sharp edged body is about as refreshing as it gets. A light tingle promulgates the lemony acidity throughout the mouth. Damn, surprisingly good. A perfect summer beer for Florida. Fans of Berliner Weiss, lambic, and tea alike will enjoy this stuff. 3/10

Bottle, at Novare Res, Portland, Maine. A hazy, pale golden beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma is fresh and lightly fruity, with some lemony sourness. Lemon, some funk, leather and barnyard in the flavor, it’s tart, thin and pleasantly carbonated. Long fruity and lightly sour finish. Very refreshing this one, quenching and quite flavorful. 150609

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear golden with a thin fizzy white head. Odd aroma thats vinegaresque with a sour earthy leafy aroma that I wasn’t too keen on. The flavor was fine, a bit tart and bubbly with a semisweet leafy flavor thats sour and slightly lemony with a medium light body. Glad I got this on sale because if I paid $11 for this I’d have been upset.
