4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750mL thanks to brainlair. Pours a clear straw with weak white foam. Tangy citrus nose with lemongrass, spice, candied ginger, anise, butterscotch, buttercream frosting on carrot cake, rum flambeed bananas. Geez. Taste is tangy, salty, doughy. Very soft and sweaty. I really like this. Soft, funky, quenching and complex. House yeast strain has a lot of potential. My rating: 4.1 Fiancé rating: 3.9

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted at a bottle share in a hotel room after the most recent Jackie-O’s bottle release. Hazy darker golden color. Hazy with tons of fine particles in the body. Thin white head. Some loose dots of lace. Funky bruised fermented citrus aromas. Bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick. More sweet than sour. OK wild ale. A lot of yeast character.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Small rim over fully hazy yellow beer. Liqueur, perfumey, but in a very good, slightly vinous way. Fruit as citrus, banana; vanilla, maybe even Bourbon. Citrus˛, like drinking a sweet(ish) lemon, would that exist. Again vanilla. Sharpish feel, faint astringency, light to meidum body. Very good one! Many thanks to Don!
