3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a glowing golden straw with a huge, fizzy white head that settles to a thin layer. Huge pineapple nose explodes from the glass. Flavor is more pineapple, coconut, banana, light farmhouse character, hay. Ridiculous and unlike anything I’ve ever had in the best way possible. I’d give it a 5 if it had a little more tartness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle. A sour beer that doesn’t do much for me, very sticky but dry odd presence.

Une saison équilibrée mais complexe que j’aurais préféré moins sucrée. Les bretts et les zests de fruits manque la fin abrupte souhaitable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2014 750mL bottle, pours a cloudy dull golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out loads of funkiness, some white wine, and some feint peaches. Flavour brings loads of peaches, white wine, funkiness, a champagne spritziness, and some dry white grape skins. Extremely complex, finishing champagne-like and a bit fruity. Remarkable depth to this, with all elements in perfect harmony. A wild ale of wonderful elegance.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
