3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml. bottle. It pours a nice, clear pale yellow with a disappearing white head. Lots of effervescence. The aroma jumps out with notes of sour white grapes, pear, peaches and a touch of white vinegar and pepper. The flavor is sharply acidic with a lot of the same flavors as noted in the aroma. Very light body and lots of fizziness that gives the impression of soda water without much malt or hop character. This one is all about the mixed fermentation. I would have liked a bit more funk, as it’s not noticeable at all. A bit lacto heavy and on the simple side, but pretty enjoyable.

750 c&c from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours slightly hazy gold with a slight fizzy white head. Aroma is funky and fruity. Near full bodied. It really is winey and peary, with some follow on lemon. It’s also rather mouthsmackingly earthy. Very refined. Finishes funky/grapey. Amazing ale.

Hazy gold pour, white head. I love the mix of funk, light hops, great yeasty qualitites, lemony notes and fluffy mouthfeel. Really a damn solid beer that I will be happy to drink more of.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours an intensely cloudy straw color. White head that starts off quite vigorous, but ends abruptly. Nose smells like the ghetto of funkytown... Intense funk, cheese, KC and the sunshine band. Taste reveals this to be light on the sour but heavy in the funk. Some grape taste, some white pepper, some sweaty balls, but really, really funky. Not quite sour enough for my preferences, but seriously funky. A beautiful beer, no doubt.
