3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at The Farmers’ Cabinet in Philadelphia, PA.
Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a half finger white head that immediately settles into a thin ring. No lacing.
Slightly funky floral aroma with musty brett, floral teas, dry oak and sweet citrus notes. Tea is really prominent as is the brett character. Slight acetic vinegar presence but it doesn’t interfere with other elements. Really interesting nose.
Tart, puckering mouthfeel with lots of musty, bretty funk along with a strong floral tea presence and sweet lemon/citrus flavor. Lingering acetic vinegar in the finish had me salivating for more. Really complex with sourness, funk, floral tea flavor and sweet citrus bouncing off of each other. The grapefruit, lemon juice and tea notes form a nice combination of flavors.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Farmer’s Cabinet in Philadelphia. Pours a slightly-hazy bright straw-yellow color with a nice white head and a bit of ringy lacing on the way down. The nose carries some notes of lemon and pineapple plus a bit of light acidity. Flavor has a touch of acidity as well, though is mostly straight Brett fruitiness with just a bit of grain in the background. Light body and crisp finish. Very easy drinking.

On draft at Farmers Cab, pours a medium bodied straw yellow, thin white head and sporadic lace. Aromas of apples, lemons, earthy flower tea, spice, berries, and soap. Finshed on the dry side. Pretty good, but not my favorite of the night.

Pleasant but mild. (5th of 8) Pale, slightly hazy orange-yellow. Thin white, fluffy head. Spotty lacing. Nose is full of orange, peach, lemon but relatively muted compared to the better representatives in the series. Flavor is similar to the nose with orange, peach and lemon taking center stage. A light floral tone is also present Medium to light bodied, mild carbonation. Assertive, but not overwhelming sourness.
