King_Alex_II (432) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Golden cloudy color. Light funky, saison like smell. The taste is salty, spicy and a little to much lively carbonation bubbles. Very dry in the aftertaste.

tightslice (330) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is musty, old wood, meadow, white wine, grape skins. Taste is mild white wine, some grapes, light lemon, dry oak. Interesting but was hoping for a little more funk and depth.

Zymurgeist2 (1234) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Well I had to get the cork out using my teeth! After that, aromas of meadow with sporadic wildflowers. Slight lemon and pepper became more apparent as it warmed. Hazy golden-orange with full white head of soapy bubbles that are retained. Taste is moderate spice and citric squeeze of lemon. Slight grittiness of sheathed wheat field. Finishes nicely dry. A little bit of barn but not too much. Very pleasant to drink.

Suttree (5423) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Geez, that cork was wedged in there tight. Hazy yellowish orange, with a smallish white head. Smells grassy and yeasty. Taste is nicely tart, with some citrus and some winey notes, and grassy hops finish. I liked it...

BeerandBlues2 (10606) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 26, 2015
Bottle at the brewery. Pours clear gold with a medium, frothy white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is citrus hops, pear esters, raisins, pepper, wheat malt and earthy yeast notes. Flavor is lightly tart citrus and tropical fruit, light crisp malt, pepper, raisins and a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Mesjasz (184) - Lodz, POLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Hazy orange color, almost no head. Aroma is acidic, funk, vineous. Taste is light acid and dry, some bitterness and tartness at finish. Flavor is funk, citrus, grapes, bread, herbal. Aftertaste is tart, dry, bitter with citrus character. Medium body, thin texture and medium carbonation. Bretts do the work. Very good.

SinH4 (729) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 18, 2015
Hazy orange color with big white head. Grapey, fruity, funky fresh aroma. Fruity taste, dry, high carbonation, vineous, spicy. Even a little bit salty. A nice one, okay-priced as well! Quite complex.

Bottle poured at a blind tasting. Thanks Eugene. Pours a reddish orange color with a short fizz head. Slightly sour tropical fruit aroma. Sweet gummy fruit flavor with hints of spice.in the finish. Interesting. Nice beer here.
