3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a bright, bubbly golden with a big, frothy white head that lasts a long time. Aroma is more subtle, with floral and citrus notes. I get mostly orange and grapefruit. The impressions from the nose translate to the taste, with the taste being a bit sharper. Here, I really get the orange flavors. Some lemon also. I do get some yeastiness as well. Light in body with some good, fizzy carbonation. Aftertaste lingers and consists of that tropical orange along with yeast. Not bad, and pretty refreshing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Erupted. Dirty bronze, little light protrudes. Big pile of foam. Earthy nose, bordering on the sour. Drinks with a funky essence without seeming infected. Not what I’d expected. Without a date stamp, I’d call it "rural." (#6143, 2/27/2016)

This is okay. My father rated it a 3.9 (luvystypotables) and I disagree. It’s light it’s boring it’s commercial. Very drinkable. Very lights.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a 330ml bottle on 2/1/2015. Pours a murky dark golden with a biggish head. Has a light aroma of caramel and biscuit malt, along with a bit of fruit. Flavour wise, there’s some sweet citrus fruit which is quickly bludgeoned into submission by a very firm, quite salty bitterness. Not much else is going on. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A bit blunt and agricultural. Quite disappointing.

Bottle to tulip
This bottle exploded, despite my careful uncorking, so it poured a cloudy amber with a huge 5cm, very frothy off white head with some staying power.
Aroma is hay, grass, rye, and some light tropical fruit. Taste is sour and bitter with grassy notes.
