4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by Adam Jackson during the RBNG. Hazy pale yellow color, still good carbonation level. Aroma of tart lemons, moldy oak, sour grapes.
Flavor is much the same as the nose with a sharp acidic sensation in the back of the taste buds. Very dry texture. I guess everybody goes nuts over this because of the rarity. It’s a great sour if you’re into that sort of thing.

Big thanks to Adamjackson for the share on this. Your typical Adamjackson whale tasting. Nobody showed up because they all asked around and heard Adam only has whale tastings. Really nice sour that smells fantastic. I get so much in this; lemon, tropical fruits, grapes, oak, white wine, leather, and basement. Taste is moderately tart with more fruits and funk. Overall great stuff,

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
2010 Bottle, 750 ML split a stupid amount of ways.
A - Straw yellow appearance. Small whisp of the head and leaves a nice 1 finger head that fades fast.
S - The nose is huge! A very acidic, lots of grape skin, hay, rope and leather. Super funky with lemon as well.
T - Taste is even better. I get a hint of butter but really, it’s a lemon lime funk bomb, a lot of rope, minor fecal taste (yes seriously) and I get a really great grapefruit rind, ropey and sweet.
M - Insanely dry, super bright carbonation and mouthfeel. Really excellent. This makes the beer amazing.
O - Well, I didn’t hype this one up too long or sit on it forever. I traded for it to enjoy on my 2,000th beer rating and BOOM enjoying it with some nice friends from RateBeer. Excited to have this with you all. Thanks!

Sampled at Woodshop 2011. Pours a hazy bright golden color with minimal head. Aromas of grapefruit, lemonade, acid, medium funk, overripe lime. The palate is nice and drying, but not overly acidic, with flavors of tart peach, pink lemonade, slight funk. Well balanced.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This one poured a hazy darker yellow to orange with an off white head. Aroma was very bright, lots of sweet bread, orange zest, lemon, mild funk, and wheaty yeasty. Flavor was similar, lots going on here, overripened peaches, coriander, cracked wheat, light white wine, light funk quality too. Very nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour is golden yellow with a bubbly white head. Nose has very faint barrel with hints of acetic acid, notes of leathery bret and orange peel with a nice vinous quality. Taste is very drinkable, sour white grape skins and citrus with hints of oak and vanilla. Faint leathery bret and a touch of citrus towards the back of the palate. Lighter body and strong carbonation (shocking) with a dry and lightly sour finish. Very delicate flavors and pretty well done.
