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.

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.

12 ounce bottle courtesy of GhostFace. Thanks! Pours a hazy orange color with a medium sized foamy off-white head. Good head retention and solid lacing.
