3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear gold into a tulip. Bright white head with little retention recedes to a soapy mess. Sweet dough, hay and citrus aromas. Smooth with sweet lime, bread and grapefruit upfront turning flat in the lasting bitter spruce finish.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the 12.7 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is golden yellow with a tremendous white head. I am not sure what to think of this aroma. It is very odd. I feel like I’m sniffing cheap perfume or cologne. Yeah,. there’s some pale malts in it but the perfume is more predominant. The body is light and refreshing. The taste is tainted by this strange perfume aroma. I get a little toasted biscuit malts and a slight spice character but I can’t get around the aroma.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a medium golden color with a finger of foam. The nose is a vast array of citrus, spiced orange, ginger, peppercorns and a hint of bubblegum. The palate follows the noses complexity with a lot of citrus spice... not that citrus spice makes any sense but its the only words I can describe. There is a tea like earthiness, some cereal grain backbone, lots of grapefruit bitterness on the tail end... very different yet intriguingly drinkable.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells almost exactly like Lemon Pledge. Flavor is very, very citrus and tart, almost like a high alcohol shandy. Unpleasant, medicine-like finish. I know it’s an experiment, but this is one they should have left in the beaker.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the brewery.
Pours a pretty damn clear light golden color with a smallish white head that dissipates almost instantly. The aroma certainly has a lime bite to it. Light pepper and coriander, and a hint of pine sap, with a sweet almost honey like malt and bitter pith round out the aroma. The flavor is light honey like malts with a huge spruce presence that almost feels like its smoked countered with a bitter pithy grapefruit flavor. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick sweet mouthfeel. I was really getting into the keffir up front, but the spruce and grapefruit flavor contrasted just a bit to much for me.
