3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Visual: Warning! Super gusher for a minute or two, have a glass ready to catch the 99% head. Pours cloudy orange-brown with a ridiculously large ultra foamy head, lots of sticky lacing, several slow streams.
Nose: sour barnyard, minor tangerine/orange citrus (lvl-5)-pungency.
Attack: foamy head, fizzy-tingly mouthfeel, incoming sweetness
Mid-palate: balanced (lvl-6)-sweetness, medium sourness/tang, brightness, (MAIN) (lvl-3) non-invasive barnyard, lemon, seltzer, apricot, stonefruit malts
Finish: bitter hops, mild oak exhale
Summary: Initial sips had a metallic flavour from the bottle cap but subsequent sips were clean. Extremely balanced sweet-sour-tang-flavour profile, with sweetness tipping the balance slightly. Great structure with the only minus being the metallic off-taste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
hazy orange, puffy white cap drops but laces well. Sweet fruit nose, edges with some dusty brett, peppery esters but almost so acidic it’s bright. Lightly stinging fruit at front, dusty, earthy mid, tons of wheat before the metallic, lightly cheesy, heavily hot finish that burns jowl. Fizzy carbonation body too full, leaves stomach blasted.

Bottle thanks to Matt! Pours a hazy orange gold with a large white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a nice light tartness with a bit of flora, funk and barrel as well as a touch of dry grass. Flavor starts with light sweet grains, flora and with a good amount of woodiness and a light tartness. A touch of dryness in the finish as well.
