M82 (469) - Kansas, USA - MAY 17, 2015
A heavily hazed, opaque second pour, vibrant pineapple juice body supports a tall, frothy-tight white head which slowly dissipates to a frothy ring with a rounded falling peninsula of lace

Aromas and flavors are very complimentary with smooth gradation and medium intensity, mild tartness, bright and juicy tropical, funk of the dusty basement variety, white grape skin, cantaloupe, subtle white pepper, mineral, and leafy hop accents, all on a soft, frothy-creamy medium body showing rounded, tickling carbonation which leads to a mild burst of juiciness, residuals of the previously mentioned components, the tropics shift a bit to introduce mango and nectarine on the residual which work further into the flavor and aroma with warmth, very enjoyable, 12 more servings please

1 pint .9 Fl. Oz., labeled as 7.5% Alc by Vol., bottle code 00241A2 16:14 01615 served at 45-55º into 14.7 oz Zwiesel Cognac snifter

yngwie (16378) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle. A milky yellow-orange beer with a small, white head. Lots of grapefruit and funk in the aroma, some pale malts. Juicy flavor with grapefruit and loads of funk. Some vinous notes, yeast hints in a nice way. Lots of bitterness. Full body, soft and smooth on the palate. Lasting fruity finish. The brett makes it feel a bit simple, but it’s damn tasteful and moreish anyway. Would sure be nice to repeat this one. 150513

You can tell even when the beer’s inside the bottle that this liquid is going to be as hazy as mud. In a glass, this holds true -- the apricot-colored brew lets almost zero light in. In a tulip, hyperactive carbonation creates a pillowy head of pure white that’ll make you think someone’s covered your beer in goose down. White grapes are in the aroma, but more pronounced are notes of dried lemon, lilac, peppercorn, and urine -- but not in a bad way. Good urine. In the flavor, the crackery crispness of Pilsner malts provides a worthy backdrop for Nelson hop bitterness and funky Prairie yeast. Here’s the ’Merica I’ve been searching for -- a madhouse of homegrown funk, provided by a truly all-American culture. The yeast blends notes of hay, pepper and farmhouse funk with the lemony bite and gentle grape sweetness of the Nelson hops. The haze is not just for show -- those extra particles in the glass provide more body than you’ll usually find in a saison. The second pour from the bottle is made downright chewy by yeasty sediment. Alcohol, which is fairly high at 7.5 percent, is noticeable as it causes a mild case of heartburn on the way down. Peppery carbonation perks up the big body a bit, but overall this is a bit out of style in the mouthfeel. Nice blend of off-beat flavors, though.
