4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A: The pour is a slightly hazed golden straw color with a massive white head that clings to the glass.
S: A very nice earthy aroma to this beer providing some grass and hay notes. Lightly sweet malts with a bit of a cracker thing going on. A touch of fruitiness, but certainly some lemon zest that is very pleasing.
T: This one starts out with a very light tartness (of the lemon variety). Grass, hay, and leather give this beer a fantastic earthy character and really dry it out. A hint of of spice (white pepper) and a bready malt base completes this one.
M: The body is medium with plenty of carbonation and a very dry finish.
D: Just fantastic stuff. Glad to have an extra one of these sitting at home.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL wild version at McKenzie for RBSG 2011. Pours a hazy golden with a healthy white head. Doesn’t come off immediately as that funky to me. Acid mash wheat beer and Berliner Weiss come to mind in the nose with more lemon and wheat starch in the nose than citrus, Brett, funk, barn. Nose opens up to green apples and cinnamon. Taste is very doughy, lactic tart, and pretty much straight Berliner Weiss with cinnamon green apples. Better than tap version. Still sort of an oddity. Would like to try again after the bottle has a little more age.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by Kan, thanks! Pours a cloudy pale gold with a large white head that dissipated quickly to the edges. Aroma has a bit of spiciness and funk with a nice grain note and a bit of fruit and floral notes underlying. Flavor is a bit more earthy with a nice malt note with some brett and floral notes. There is a bit of spiciness that rounds out the beer nicely.
