Tasting at Bruceís pad. Thanks to Colin Theydon for this one. Pretty hazy gold - amber beer. Little pale cream coloured head. Softish palate, semi dry. Light carbonation. Light seltzer minerals. Nice mango syrup, as if poured from a can of tinned mango. A little fresh orange. Very light sourness and white wine. Whisper of vanilla. Light dry finish. An approachable sour which drinks well below itís abv.

Bottle at Culmination Fest: Poured a orange color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was sour citrus fruit. Taste came on strong with sour bitter tart citrus fruit, but finished with a fresh grain pop at the end.

Steasy66 (883) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Amber blond with fizzy white head. Aroma is muted with a bit of funk. Flavor is sweet and a bit tart, really clean and refreshing. Body is thicker than expected. Good beer overall.

arminjewell (6176) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Pour out of 750 ml bottle, thanks Stephen! Hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of lemon, oak brandy, earth, slight white grape, hints of grain, slight yeast. Taste is a mix of dough, yeast, grass, some peach, pear, white grape, slight grainy notes, finishing fairly sweet. Nice.

adnielsen (9108) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2014
Bottle @ What the Funk Denver 2014. Pours a golden orange appearance with a thin cream colored head. Pretty strong aroma. Definitely some cheese and funk in the nose. Plenty of earth as well. Flavor was a bit strong. Some citrus and a lot of barnyard funk. Light cheese / parmesan. Again, kind of strong but kind of fun to drink.
