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.

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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle from jlruthven. Thanks Josh! It pours a very pale yellow color with a large white head that shrinks quickly. The aroma is very pleasantly tart with lots of lactic lemony yogurt and wheat. The flavor is light and refreshing with a perfect amount of tartness… very lemony, yogurt and wheat in the aftertaste. Huge lactobacillus presence without a whole lot else. Effervescent mouthfeel. Wow. Probably one of the best examples of the style I’ve had.

Thank you beerbaron! Champaign of the north for sure. Pours a transparent yellow with a medium bright white head. Not much aroma, light tart lemon and apples. Taste is tart apple, grape, and straw. Bubbly and very light body. Refreshing.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2015 Very subtile, very plain. Slight sour but not strong at all. Almost like the made a watered down sour. 3.1
Just noticed I gave this 3.1 a couple years ago. Did the beer change, or my tastes change? Maybe I didn’t get what it was back then. Tart, crisp, refreshing. Bought a 4 pack last week at the brewery. Wishing I had a lot more.
