Cloudy yellow soup. Horse blanket and pineapple on the nose. Thin and bitter. Not pleasant. Gross in fact. I canít imagine the scene where a brewer samples a train wreck like this and says, "bottle it."

Best way to describe it is a champagne sort of ale beer. I got a bottle in Chicago at bar $27 what not recommend it for the price.

Bottle - big pillowy head, cloudy medium straw color, nice light malt (almost like wheat) aroma and flavor, just enough sourness from the Brett to make it super refreshing, very good overall

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2014 I sure am glad I bought this, its just the sort of light funky beer Iím into these days. Very pale yellow hazy color, large foamy rocky meringue of a head. Very effervescent. Nose is funky bretty, soured cream, blue cheese, damp straw. Dry herbal, bready, light cheesy funk, no acidity, maybe a hint of hop but not really more than a lingering bitterness at the dry finish. Fizzy almost carbonic mouthfeel. I have no idea what they mean by post-prohibition style ale. I wouldnít call this a speciality grain either, as its no more speciality than any lager that uses corn and rice, neither of which do anything here other than lighten the body. Having said that Iíd have no idea what to call it in any case, not that it is important anyway, just rambling on at this point.

Draught at City Beer in San Fransisco.
Huge, white moussy head. Clowdy yellow color. Small lactobacillus aroma with a bit of stable. Fruity (pear and apricot) taste with a small acid to freshen up the beer. Plesent dry with a small fine bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber into footed glass. Hazy lemonade yellow. Strong bright white head that settles quickly. Nose of tropical fruit (papya?) and some barnyard funk. Fairly carbonated in the mouth. In the mouth, tart but fruity up front -- reminds me of biting into fruit without the sugar, Funk comes through in the mid, and Iím almost getting a smokey hint like a rauchbier? Weird. Finishes very dry, almost acerbic, like pitting into the pith of a lemon or grapefruit. Suggestion of pepper too. Unique, with lots of unusual flavors for a beer. Iíd be interested to see what it does with food, maybe sushi?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Caps & Taps. It pours a very pale yellow color with a white head. The aroma is nice and bright with lemon and grapefruit citrus, mild wheat and peppery spice. The flavor is minerally and herbal with some pepper and a little soap. Citrus grapefruit bitterness with more dank herbs in the finish. Tasty, but a little too aggressive for me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting.
Body is hazy light to medium yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, corn starch), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs), with notes of lemon juice/zest, sour apple skin, light note of band-aid.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter.
Light to medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation.
An interesting beer, although I canít help but wonder why this wasnít all-malt instead. Itís quite attenuated, almost overly so...the finish is so dry as to almost be unpleasant, but as I always say, itís certainly better than being too sweet. Could make a very nice saison without the adjuncts, and just a teeny tiny bit more residual sweetness. Saisons should be thirst-quenching, not make you parched and *more* thirsty.
