wedgie9 (2568) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 20, 2013
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.

Kita (1757) - Koper, SLOVENIA - MAY 1, 2016
Bottle, 0.50l. Initial pour with an explosion and 1rd of a beer spilt :( Hazy deep straw color with thin frothy white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma is vinous, yeasty, citric and funky with brett note. Taste starts sour citric and light sweet grainy, following is vinous, funky, mild peppery and smooth lacto, mouthfeel is crisp and dry, while finish is mild bitter. Light body, thin texture and average carbonation in palate. 7% ABV not felt at all, very refreshing...
