Bottle, thanks Paul. Cloudy creamy yellow with big white head. Sharp funky aroma, nostril burning, citrusy, smells salty if that’s possible. Taste is sharp lemon funk and then slightly earthy in the finish.

Cloudy pale yellow with a good bright white head. Aroma is gym socks, cheesy funk (Brie rind), citrus rind. Medium-full bodied, complex on the palate with umami overtones, hint of sourness fading into a tangy sweetness on the finish. Taste is Brie, persimmon, orange peel, Greek yogurt, lemongrass. Yum!

750ml bottle shared during #bottlecherwednesday at Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach. Poured into a tulip. Golden-yellow slightly hazy appearance with a thin white head that quickly fizzes down to nothing. Aroma is lactic funkiness, citrus, tropical fruit, bready malt, and oak. Taste is tart/sour tropical and citrus fruit, grassy hop bitterness, oak, buttery, and vinous on the finish. Medium-light body, smooth, thin texture, fizzy carbonation, dry finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an opaque straw colour. Complex raisiny, horsey aroma. Clean, without too many phenols. Came out over-carbonated, at champaign levels, but after sitting for a while it calmed down. Nice long bitter finish.

750 ml bottle to taster at RBWG (thanks Carl). Looks good; a hazy lemon with ample foamy white head. Smells funky and barnyard. Tastes like it smells with a pleasant mouthfeel. Good beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle. I busted one bottle, so I bought another! Worth it. Pours a very hazy orange/straw color with a large, slightly over-carbonated white head. A nose of straw, citrus, some yeast. This is a wonderful beer: hay, straw earthy grains, robust lemon and citrus bitterness, light lactic sourness, fluffy palate. The overall drinkability is very high. The palate and the soft sourness make this just wonderful. Like a Berliner Weiss.

I believe Teri Fahrendorf brought this to share, so I have her to thank! This was opened by DH, Nate and another fellow at Country Boy with a threaded screw and pliers, which was quite a spectacle. Nearly lemonade yellow pour with a small white film. The nose and flavor were vibrant and young- lemon, cheesecloth; acidity is not negligible. Palate is light, slick and flat. Reminds me of Tilquin Gueuze a bit.
