3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle to snifter (thanks StFun). Looks good for the style; a hazy lemon gold with lively carbonation and white head that steadily dissipates into thin lacing. Smells solid; tart and wheaty. Tastes like it smells, only better, with some lacto and a touch of lemon. Tart and lively on the palate. A good example of the style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Poured clear, straw golden with a tall, fluffy, sticky white head. The aroma picked up fresh lime, salt, and light woodsy sourness.. very clean, and it smelled like it was going to be refreshing. The flavor found sour lactic notes and lime on the tip of the tongue, with fine carbonation rolling it nicely through the mouth.. salty on the edges and finish, and very dry the whole way through.. almost champagne-like effervescence on the crisp, refreshing finish. Light-bodied with fine carbonation on the palate.. great balance and almost unstoppable drinkability.. excellent stuff!

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours clear golden with dense white head, leaving behind irregular lacing. Nose is funky-tart, citrus, and a little vinous. Taste brings out toasted cereal grains. Tart / acidic. Thin, water texture; light body, ample carbonation. Overall: great aroma and appearance, but a little let down by the taste and texture.

Bottle shared by Chaney. Thank you Brandon.
The beer is light golden and transparent with a thin, pure white head. The aroma offers grain, pilsner malt, fruity esters. The flavor is ok. Cereal grains with a hint of sourdough bread. A bit underwhelming. Zesty carbonation with fruity hop notes. This was ok, but I don’t see myself returning to this beer again.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours pale straw color with a billowing white head that recedes slowly. Aroma is yeasty, tart and spicy...enticing! Flavor is slightly mellower than what I remember from the ’unplugged’ version of this beer, but still the sour/tart wheat beauty that I remember. Incredibly easy (actually, too easy) to drink...medium to high level of effervescence but incredibly smooth on the palate. Yum!
Plan to do a side-by-side with the unplugged soon as I have about 4 of those left...can’t wait!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours real hazy straw yellow with white head. Aroma has a pleasant white grape, some oak, touch yogurty lactic thing. Flavors have a balance of tart and sweet, white grapes and lemon, lactic. Mouth feel is highly carbonated, big spritzy champagne feel. Refreshing.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle. Clear pale gold with a delicate white head. Nose is chardonnay, lemon and vanilla custard. Crisp and creamy with a sour bite and prickly carb. Taste is between lemon and lime perfectly sour and slightly sweet. Hints of white grape with a dry oaky finish. Beautiful stuff, no fruit required.
