3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours cloudy golden with a huge, resilient, pillowy off-white head. Thick lacing. Aroma of lemon pepper, wheat, bubblegum, barnyard funk, and sweet bread. The taste is quite bland when compared with the aroma. It’s a little sweet and yeasty, but that’s about it. Medium bodied, ever so slightly dry, fluffy carbonation. Kind of boring.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Pours watery orange with a large white head of tight bubbles. Easy 4 on appearance. Good retention and lace. Nose is feathery yeast, and noteably dry. Light sweet flavor of dried grass. Tastes just like the aroma. Light body, prickly carbonation, and a dry finish. Minimal sweetness throughout. Good but lacking complexity and the yeast isn’t that compelling.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Jennifer Gottlieb, the cutest woman on the planet. Pours a dense, thick cheddar orange with a freakin’ huge head of white. Aroma is field hay, barn must, and light flower bread. Flavor is buttery hay and berry wth subtle straw and musty grass notes. Thick, oily mouthfeel. Better than average, yes, but not spectacular.
