3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium golden yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white pillowy head that receded slowly for about a minute down to a large puddle with medium collar and excellent sticky sheets of lacing.
The aroma was of a light grain malt and a mild funky Brett yeast with notes of overripe pineapple, pears, citrus (lemon) and a touch of spice.
The taste was lightly sweet and acidic with notes of pineapple and citrus throughout with a nice dose of a tart yeast and a slight bitter spiciness towards the end. The flavor lasted only a short while with a tart yeasty spiciness left behind.
Mouthfeel was just above light in body and very mildly dry in texture with a medium carbonation.
Overall a mildly tart yeasty brew that reminds me more of a Belgian Ale than a Wild Ale...

Bottle share at Proof thanks to jbruner. Clear pale yellow color with swirls of thin white head and a medium collar. Aroma is super grainey and light malt. Taste is very faintly grassy, and then some light malt sweetness. Not much else to this one. Thin watery body, light carbonation.

Pours a slightly cloudy yellow from the growler with thin white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is really bready biscuit, a hint of mushroom earthiness. Taste follows, biscuit on biscuit on grain. Meh.

1.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Alright, supposed to be a BFD.
Pours a near crystal golden ale with dissipating white sheeting. Smells of manure, straw, mushroom, pear juice and unleaded (the good part) no indications of lemon for me. Wowza, sweet estery juice. Lots of sweet wheat character, yeast and saccharine like sweetness. Sooo sweet. Where did this even come from?! Hints of straw and yeast with a little lead character. Full bodied for the style with low carbonation. This beer is a disaster. I’m giving this an overall 1.0 despite any other ratings because the beer is composed poorly. Drain pour. What a disappointment for two renowned breweries.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bomber into tulip. Pours a straw color with a lasting white head. Slight pineapple/grapefruit on the nose but at the forefront of the aroma here is puke. Like actual vomit. Luckily there’s none of that in the flavor. However, there isn’t much of anything in the flavor. It’s kind of vaguely saison-ish, with dusty grains and mild esters and a sort of soft tart body. Mineral water and dust in the finish, maybe a rubbery phenolic tinge. Tastes and feels dirty in the mouth.

Bottle, shared by Greg. Thanks? This was uniformly described as some variation on "pineapple and grapefruit left out in a garbage can on a hot summer day. Incidentally, the following day when I dropped my son off at daycare, I noted that the daycare diaper-change area instantly reminded me of this beer the next day. Truly awful.

Draft in shaker. Ugly, yeasty, translucent. Sour, fruity nose; lemony sour milk taste. Okay, but not interesting after the first few sips.

22 oz bottle, aged for approximately a year and a half- Pours slightly hazy golden with a thin white head and loads of carbonation bubbles. Aroma is white wine grapes, vinegar, floral and fruity. The taste is like a sauv blanc grape, very floral and somewhat fruity, dry finish. What is really disappointing is not getting much if any brett, no basement flavors or dusty old books or barnyard funk. Very disappointed.

On tap: The aroma consists of Belgian yeast, citrus, and light lemon peel. It’s a transparent golden-orange with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a thin ring. The flavor starts with some Belgian yeast and some sweet honey notes. The finish has light-moderate citrus, light lemon peel, and a touch of lemon. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, a little too much on the sweet side for my preferences.
