4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2014vintage bottled on 04/23/2014!! 750 ml bottle thanks to willrunforbeer, nearly clear gold with a good amount of carbonation still left. Aroma is dusty yeast, pears, subtle lactic acid and tart hints. A very deep inhale gets me a note of flowers.
Flavor has strawberry seeds, lime with traces of a sour kiwi finish. Pleasant tartness with very subtle sour. Very interesting and it ha held up very nicely after 16 months of age. Nice sipper.

Orange pour from glass at home. 22oz bottle. It was so tart I had to pour it out. Not saying it is bad. Just not my thing. Tonite. I guess. Meh

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bottle dated 6/23/2014.
Aroma is initially a bit poopy, but as that blows off you get a nice kiwi and strawberry character. Some light floral notes form the hibiscus. Some moderate wheat notes and a light berry character. Light citrus and moderate acidity.
Pours a slightly hazy bright golden color with a hint of a pink hue and a small, thin white head that quickly recedes to the edges. No lacing and faint legs.
Flavor has a moderately strong acidity with some lemon and citrus acidity. Finish has a light sweetness with a moderate strawberry and lighter kiwi note. Some medium light floral notes. Some lingering strawberry notes.
Mouthfeel is medium light to light bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a surprisingly nice beer. i don’t know if the early batches had problems, but this turned out well. Nice strawberry character without any odd phenolics. Kiwi and hibiscus contribute nicely.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thanks to WillRunForBeer. About a year old. Clear amber pour with a small fizzy head that fades to nothing. Aroma is big strawberry, flowers, some light musty funk, and light kiwi. Tastes awesome. Moderate sourness, moderately tart. Tons of strawberry and kiwi (because I was looking for it), light juicy lemon, moderately acidic, some vinegar, and just a nice hint of sour funk. Medium body. Very easy to drink. Awesome.
