geophagus (244) - Lubin, POLAND - AUG 7, 2013
(Can 0.355 l / 1/3 of a can) Pale yellow, untransparent and very hazy. Small, white, very fast falling head. Light body, moderate carbonation, watery a bit oily texture. Very pleasant, moderate sour mouthfeel. Aroma: First a bit shocking yeasty notes, dominated by cooked eggs and sulphur. Definitely funky and moderate sour. Quite complex. Next citrus, spices and herbs. More interesting than pleasant. Taste: Refreshing and definitely better than aroma. Citrus, light and very pleasant sourness, spicy and herbal. Medium long, moderate sour finish. Definitely interesting beer.

boFNjackson (4140) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Can... Poured dense, cloudy, pale yellow with a thick head that dissipated rather quickly. Aroma had noticeable yeast notes that came off as sulfuric and eggy. Tasted of vibrant and bitter lemongrass and orange peel along with bitter hops. Had that bitter rind quality in there. Some earhty floralness, black pepper spice, and estery spiced yeast notes in the finish. Thanks goodness that awful aroma didn’t come through in the flavor.
