3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle.The pour was a murky golden yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that dissipated down to a thin film and had some fair spotty lacing.
The aroma was a bit musty with a light grain malt, some citrus hops and a funky scented yeast with notes of citrus (lemon), green apple and apricot.
The taste was a little sweet and acidic with notes of lemon and apricot in the beginning but became sour very quickly with a big note of green apple and being a bit acetic towards the end. The flavor lasted a good long time after the swallow with a strong sour fruity ending.
Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a nice prickly carbonation.
Overall a great sour Blonde Ale with a nice apple peel bite at the end...

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours light pale yellow, cloudy, thin film of foam. Aroma is yeasty, feels saisony but also soft and fruity-creamy. Taste is sour with barnyard and berries. Bit of bitterness and that is left also later and keeps lingering. Dry and tingling the roof of my mouth. Combined with fruitiness and subtle sour, this one is really multy-layered and actually keeps growing on me. Solid.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottled on June 2015, surprisingly smooth even though it’s only been aged for 6 months. I am really loving this; pours pale yellow with white head, it has aroma of clove and dough. the flavor is a blend of citrus and cheese; it’s very delicious and well balanced.

Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with big fluffy white head that dissipates slowly to leave good lace. Aroma of funky gym socks, barnyard hay, and sweet citrus. Taste is more toward the citrus and funk. Just plain amazing, funking awesome.
