interesting label .. . pretty darn spritzy .. . a bit floral, earthy, and well balanced albeit quite boring .. . the mouth feel was too much, other than that, decent .. . . i own a two in one animal, a cat bunny..

Bottle... Pours hazy and yellow with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Good retention. The nose is lemon-like and citric. Medium-bodied and abrasive with vibrant carbonation. The flavor is tart and fruity - citrus. Crisp, raspy, Mojave-dry finish. Bottle courtesy of 50belair!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared with Al and Mark, pours clearish golden with lots of head and carbonation. Notes of bubblegum grape candy, champagne yeast, Brett, traditional saison with a lemon or orange finish. A little too bubbly and spicy for me. Somewhat Fantome like. Drinkable but lacking as far as these guys are concerned

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ Pat’s. Thanks, Rich. Slightly hazed but bright golden pour with white foam. The nose is super tropical. Tons of pineapple, mango, and guava. Some lemon zest, yeast, and a whole lot of citrus juice. The flavor is much more sour than I had anticipated. Big time grapefruit and lemon juice. Some pineapple and mango give a bit of sweetness. Hints of peach, yeast, and crackers. Very dry on the finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy light yellow pour with a slight white head. Really interesting nose on this one, some citrus and pineapple funk. Light body, bright and refreshing with some slight bitterness in the finish - clean and crisp.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 750, into a Rasta Teknu glass. Semi-clear light yellow golden with a small white head. Nose is fruity, peachy sweet, taste is a blend of lemon and brett, just a tad funky. This is good stuff, with a nice dry finish.

T - A lot of doughy lemon zest, bread and yeasty brett funk with lemon and cool whip
M - Excellent body! Full bodied, insanely dry, great bottle conditioning so delicate.

Bottle shared by mendvicdog. Thanks Pat!
The beer is straw yellow and mildly hazy with a white head. Aromas include lemon, hay, grass, floral notes. Easy drinking and tangy with notes of citrus and Meyer lemons. Mild tartness. Light in body, but not thin. Tasty.
