Blind tasting @ home. Milky light yellow appearance with a thin white head. Kind of spicy / herbal / yeasty nose. Tart orange / citrus fruits. Some floral elements as well with some coriander. Dull carbonation. Tart tropical / citrus fruit (orange / lemon / guava). Bready / yeasty / wheat flavor. Low bitterness and low sweetness. A bit twangy / tart / lactic finish. Definitely get the salt on the finish. Kind of neat.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tart, juicy, filmy / syrupy, sweet, quenching acidity. Some banana taffy and cotton candy and gummy apple cider sorta flavors. Glycerol film in a long acidic finish that creeps into heartburn stomach acid territory. Lacto reminds me of malic acid in cider. Can I use the word refreshing in a rating, is that still okay? I like it in the same way that I like Fentiman’s ginger soda, the sour / sweet play is nice

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2013 Draft. This one just didn’t do it for me. Very salty and just an overload of wheat, but what I do know is it is better than 312 and people will indeed dig this.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, corn starch), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of lemon/lime juice, sour apple, ginger.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
To be blunt, it’s pretty much like soda pop. To quote an amusing Snapple line from Seinfeld, "too fruity". Lots of citrus and apple with a gingery sorta note just makes it seem like a lightly malty 7Up or something. Nothing really wrong it, but it’s just rather novelty-ish.
