4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle shared. The beer is a bazy vold color with a velvety head of white foam. The aroma has a juicy funk to it, that comes across with a lot of tropical fruit and a bit of floral bite. The taste has that juicy sweetness and some very mild tartness. Not really sour, but it seems as though it wants to be. Medium carbonation with a velvety, yet spritzy mouthfeel. Medium body.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
16.9 ounce bottle, julian date of 13515 printed on the bottle (May 15, 2015). Well, this one was a gusher. Served in a Prairie Teku, the beer pours a hazy gold color with about a couple inch white head that fizzled away quickly. Aroma is nice but subtle. It smells like lemon, hay, and white grapes/wine. The taste also seems muted to me. There was also some pear and earthy flavors noticeable. Itís a nice tasting brew, but I just wish the flavors (well, and the aroma) were stronger. Mouthfeel/body is light, and it has a good amount of carbonation. It has the makings of being a pretty good brew, but for whatever reason the flavor and aroma just seemed weak. Iíll have to try another batch of this in the future. $9.99 a bottle.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to Jon for the bottle share. Pours a hazy yellow with a one-finger soapy white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Lots of barnyard and musty hay aromas with some lemon zest and light pear in the background. Active carbonation with a light body. Light tart finish, crisp and refreshing. Fairly one-dimensional but a winner.
