3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle purchased at the Louisville beer store. The pour is a clear lighter golden with a one inch foamy white head that falls quickly. A bunch of effervescent carbonation bubbles float up from the bottle of the tulip. The aroma is soft lemon citrus tartness, along with mild funk sour and a general grass. The taste is the citrus lemon tartness right up front, along with a soft fruit sweetness, then moves to the more yeasty funk sour in the back. The citrus tartness shows back up in the finish. The palate is light bodied, effervescent, with fine active carbonation and a crisp tart citrus finish. Easy drinking beer, Champagne like with the effervescence.

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good for the style; a hazy golden blond with off-white hear that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes solid; tart and wild. Nice and lively on the palate. Good beer!

What a treat, thanks Santa! The carb on this is thru the roof, much likened to bubbly. Ya get some sweet fruit and a touch of sour, very quaff-able and extremely enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on 9/21/13 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle purchased at Louisville Beer Store. Pours cloudy yellow with a massive, foamy perfectly white head that slowly recedes to thin, bubbly lace. The nose is dry and funky, almost Champagne-like yeastiness with a touch of tart lemon pith, and a bit of a wheaty malt aroma. The flavor is very similar, with a tart, yet very lightly sweet preserved lemon, a bit more of a biscuity flavor than suggested on the nose, and plenty of dry, funky yeast. The body is fairly light with sparkling carbonation and a very long, faintly sweet, but very tart preserved lemon finish.
