Draft at The Farmers’ Cabinet in Philadelphia, PA. Pours a cloudy, pale golden yellow color with a two finger frothy white head that has excellent retention, only very slowly fading into a lasting ring. Chunks of soapy lacing left behind. Funky, slightly herbal aroma with a musty barnyard quality along with acetic vinegar, light fruit and herbal tea notes.  Lots of lemony citrus and dark tea leaf. Medium bodied with a tart, puckering mouthfeel and a decent level of sourness without being harsh or acidic.   Lots of sweet citrus with a strong lemon peel presence countering the and subtle funk and earthy tea flavors.  Really refreshing and easy to drink with a prominent herbal tea leaf presence toward the slightly dry finish.  This beer pulls off the tough task of being really unique while remaining flavorful and sessionable.   I’m excited to try the other variations in this series.

glass from Farmers Cabinet. Poured golden with a thin white head. Aroma of lemon citrus, earthy, brett. mouthfeel was crisp with flavors of lemon, light orange citrus, and a nice sourness. Perfect amount of tart for me which made this very drinkable.

Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Unexpectedly nice derivation of an Asian tea. Bit of honey fruit mixed in. Unexpectedly crisp.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 Underwhelming. (6th of 8) Pale, slightly hazy orange-yellow. Thin white, fluffy head. Spotty lacing. Nose is soft orange, peach, lemon (like all of the others) with not much else going on. Hints of acidity in the nose. Flavor is similarly benigh. Medium to light bodied, mild carbonation. Assertive, but not overwhelming sourness.
