PhillyCraft (3636) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle, pour hazy golden with ultra fluffy white top. Awesome looking beer. Aromas are pineapple, grapefruits hops, lemon skins, and funky wheat. Flavor was most of the same with a lactic lemon-peach finish. Medium to higher carbonation. Further solidifying their reputation of quality at SARA.

[ Bottle ][ ½ of 75cl ][ Tasting ][ Trade ][ Snifter ][ 9.26.14 ]
Murky hay-yellow color, large-bubbled gravity white head dies ultra fast, tepid with no effervescence, still otherwise, cider-like stillness. Really husky nose, grainy with considerable lemon, acids prevalent but none stand out, too watery. Light-mod body, low effervescence but ultra-slick, front is tons of soft grain, lactic acid dominating. Middle is still soft, faint yogurt with crackery malt that continues into the finish, watery with a rough envelope glue patch. Very pleasant, a few off notes, the thin body is the weakest aspect, the profile very balanced and sessionable.

cpetrone84 (1588) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Pour is a transparent pale yellow with a white head that dissipates immediately and then sits still. Nose is a bit sharp, loads of dustiness, moderate lacto, and a fair bit of lemon. Taste is a bit more lemony, lacto mid palate but gentle, slight bitterness in the finish. Still fairly dusty up front with notes of grains. Lighter body, a bit slick mid palate, strong carb.
