Backlog bottle thanks to so many good ratebeerians. The smell is sour, tart, acidic. The look is yellow in color, white fizzy head. The taste is tart, fruits, not too sour.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ Bobby’s house. Shared by GT. Hazy golden pour with a white head. Really funky nose. Sulfur, sawdust, grass, and brine. A bit of must and damp straw. Flavor is a bit tart and lactic. Pretty funky. Lots of grass, sulfur, sawdust, and green apple. Some must, straw, and a touch of hot dog. Not a big fan.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL from La Bodega. Pours a clear, light golden. Weak foam. Nose is salty, sulfury, dishwater- volatile notes clean up over time to some solid peach and saltwater. Taste is peach, chardonnay, apricot, fairly juicy. Palate feels a bit soapy and thin.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 2013 Batch 2. Pours a light orange with a light white head. Smell is light funk and citrus but very mild on both counts. Taste has a bit more action -- lemon, tart, funk, hay, wood. Bright and clean with nice white wine notes. Lightly carbonated, fairly lively on the palate. Nice palate-cleansing dinner beer, it was great with some vegan soul food.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From 10/18 notes. 750ml bottle, batch 1. Has a nose of tart apple skin, light funk, also getting some melting plastic aroma. Mouthfeel is well carbonated and crisp. Taste is sour, oak, apple, citrus, more plastic notes. Finish is tart, sweet apples, woody. For me, it’s a bit strange.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to Hertie for sharing! Pours a light cloudy dull yellow with a nice white head. Smell is leather, wood, tart sourness, pepper, grass. Taste is dry tart wood, leather, dry Riesling - super dry ending. As the beer sits it mellows and become very approachable. Light body and active carbonation. An interesting brew.

I thought it was a Faro but it is not, obviously. Really funky barnyard taste going on here, whisked us away to an Italian rustic hideaway. Can’t wait for ABL to do the Led Zep thing. It won’t involve fish probably.
