Bottle at RBWG. Hazy to cloudy yellow color, white head. Aroma of lemon, white pepper, raw sourdough bread. Taste is softly sour citrus. Tasty.

Bottle, generously shared by Dice along with both of the batch 2 versions at a tasting in October. I’m putting my complete notes here for all of them.

1. Brett only. Batch 1: cloudy hazy gold. Offwhite minimal head (only one of the 3 where head remains). Cider, muted taste - flowers, botanical. What I think of as brett isn’t huge ... Muted all around, but totally tasty beer anyway. Medium body, average carbonation. 7/4/7/3/14. 2. Batch 2: pours so gross - gushed the dregs to the top, now it looks like shake shake. Similar to 1 -- more floral, very floral. Mineral, lemon ... But for the most part, pretty muted. 7/2/7/4/14 3. Batch 2 lacto: ... aside from the gushing, this isn’t too different from the other batch 2. Or batch 1 for that matter. 7/4/8/4/15

Bottle sample thanks to phaleslu during the post Grand Tasting bottle share in our room. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have Brett, grass, citrus, some mild tropical fruit notes, dry, farmhouse funk, decent though I would like to try this again in a different setting.

Lukaduke (2374) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle shared thanks to JBPortland ! Pours a hazy pale golden color with a finger or so of white fizz. Soft delicate creaminess with a malted wheat backbone and layers of horsehair, straw, earthy yeast, some dusty lemon zest and wet wood. A bit light handed and foggy on the flavors but fun o try and easy to drink !

JBPortland (930) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 24, 2014
750ml bottle pours hazy semi-clear pale orange yellow with a finger of head. Nose is funky lemon, orange, wood, wheat. Taste is dry woody lemon funk, citrus, brett, subtle yeast. Body is light and crisp. Finish is bone dry rustic citrus funk which drops off quickly into lingering bretty barrel wood and wheat notes.

Bottle shared at the CCB Brewpub PreHunahpu Tasting - Pours hazy yellow w/white head. Some slight citrus notes and yeastie in the nose. The taste is somewhat bland - a little yeast, a little brett, and slightly malted. Not too thrilled with this one.

[ Bottle ][ RBWG Afterparty3 ][ 750mL ][ Globe ][ Free ][ 2/8/14 ]
>> Thanks phaleslu for the share. Pours a full haze, glowing gold with weaker foam. Nose is light peach, fresh bread, dough. Taste is sugary, cantaloupe, dried pineapple. Palate is powdery, sugary, a bit sticky and mealy.

Bottle generously shared by Peter the Phallus during the post-grand tasting muff party at RBWG. Loads of pineapple flavor with lemon zest. Mildly tart, fairly tangy. Very drinkable.
