4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to Saucer Sam for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a yellow color with a few white bubbles. The aroma has a good bit of leathery funk to it, as well as some lemon notes and a bit of wheat. The flavor is similar. The funk notes are fairly strong, but I also get some tart, acidic lemon character. There is also a bit of leather, as well as some biscuit and oranges. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared thanks to sleepydave ! Pours a orange hazed golden color with a half finger of gaseous bubbles. The nose is fruity with hints of lemondrops, unripe mango, dusty funk, some moldy hay and old shoe. The palate is a bit flat but still easy to drink. Weird roundness with a cutting acidity, some spot on funky sour fruit and wet wood but the overall beer is just a little to wonky to really enjoy.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Looks nice, a hazy golden, very minimal head. Nose is great! Lots of lemon, wet hay and other funk. slight sweetness with more and more citrus. Taste is nice but not great. Lots of hay and lemon...wheat body and some spiciness. It’s pretty good but truthfully, very one-sided taste, and not a great mouthfeel. Glad it’s not hugely sour.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with thick frothy white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is a strong funk, oak, and lemon zest. Thin mouthfeel with nice tart lemon, nice funk, lingering sourness. Crisp, easy to drink, very impressive.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle with thanks to dbuckingham! Pours hazy golden with minimal head and basically no lacing. A lot of sediment in the bottom, so its possible to get a murky pour if that is your thing. Aroma is fruity, light tart lemon, oak, woody, some funk, musty basement, horse blanket. Medium body, basically flat. This is a pretty interesting beer.

Big ups to atlaggie for sharing this one. Lots of tartness here and you get the idea on first whiff of the aroma. Touch of cherry and lemon fruit in the flavor. The tart lip smacking texture though comes through and dominates the palate again. Bit of funkiness. Would like a little more depth and complexity.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle via notes from an office tasting a year ago. Pours a cloudy and frothy yellow to orange with moderate white head. Aroma is barnyard and hay. Taste is more of an acetic sour that overwhelms. The barnyard again comes in and is one of the better horse blanket bruery beers.
