3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Lightly-hazed golden ale with a huge, frothy, white head. Small, tight, long-lasting cap. There’s an awful lot going on in the aroma for such a small beer. Complex notes of juicy, fruity hops are interwoven with fruity, clove-spiced pear and apricot-like esters and phenols. Light to medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and airy carbonation. The flavor is a well-balanced blend of pale malts, fruity esters, spicy phenols, and bitter, rindy hops. Crisp, peppery, dry finish.

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. This is filled with orange, green apple, brettanomyces, hay, slight mint, earthy. This is fantastic. I love the session wild ale. Big fruity and rustic character.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Gold with a large white head that lasts well. Aroma of oranges, lemon, hay, flowers, mild funk, some shoe polish. Tart first with sweet oranges underneath; earthy and a little herbal, dry with zingy brett and a fair bit of bitterness at the end. All good stuff, but it’s very high contrast and comically unsubtle. Sediment in the second glass reduces the HULK IMPERIALIZE ALL THE NUANCES factor a bit.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Yellow-gold with massive, flotsam, white head / Dry, elegant, floral nose of citrus, coriander, truly big manure / Light body, a touch thin, with otherwise excellent balance, beautifully dry and bitter / Floral, perfumey flavors of orange peel, pear, passion fruit, coriander, manure / Weak of body, but at 4.7% it’s probably a direct result. Great stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Total Wine, Naples. The pour’s light gold with a discreet white head that quickly fades. The nose is mild farmhouse yeast. Hints of banana and spring fruits. Marshmallow. The taste is super dry white grape, apple sauce. A bit of barnyard funk. Light zippy yeasty profile. Just a hint of brett. Quite dry on the finish. Light body, plenty of carbonation. Overall, a pretty good beer. Very drinkable.
