[ Bottle ][ ˝ of 35.5cl ][ Tasting ][ ][ Tulip ][ 11.25.14 ]
Transparent gold, huge puffy white head, dense lacing. Sweet green grape nose, skin but plenty of sugary flesh, light lacto drowned in sweetness, a little green. Faint paint thinner and greenness at front palate, doughy grains with light toast mid, cleaner lactic finish, still considerable sweetness, fizzy in the contrast and thin, sparkling minerality with the short finish leaving lightest grains.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle from trade. Thanks. Pours a hazy yellow color with a big foamy white head that has excellent retention. The aroma is tart with lemons and a trace of sour green apple. The taste is more mildly tart citrus with lemons, limes and most interestingly the foamy head has a semi-sweet meringue effect. This beer is quite literally to drink a lemon meringue pie. The palate is light but effective and the carbonation is lively. Finishes long and sour. Overall: Thanks to whoever sent me this, I’ve done so many trades in the past few months that I’ve lost track. Gonna have to start labeling the bottles.

Yellow body with a big white head. The aroma has apple, citrus, funk, and a bit of acidity. The flavor is similar, very nice and refreshing. A nice malt character comes through as well. Lots of carbonation and a dry, tart finish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle split with adnielsen. Not a gusher, but big foamy pour. Hazy hay appearance. Aroma is slightly cheesy. Taste is thankfully none of that...but nice bright tart fruits. Bit of wine grapes and dragonfruit. Not super puckering, but a definite pleasant tartness that lingers on the back of the tongue.
