3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle at Fort Wayne tasting - Pours cloudy, pale yellow. The aroma has obvious lactobacillus along with citrus. The flavor is tart and earthy and the light body is a little on the thin side. Interesting brew. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2013 Served from 750 ml. bottles at Brixie’s Spring Tasting in Brookfield, IL. Poured to my fluted fest glass, a fairly clear, light lemonade hue, with quickly diminishing, fizzy, white foam. The aroma was a hint of Brett, light wheat, lemon zest, tartness, but also a light touch of corn/DMS, and only in the nose. The flavor carried on the tartness and light funk in a light body, with fizzy carbonation. Disappointed with the aroma but will try again. Reintroduced to me on tap at Bigby’s Pour House in Addison, IL., dispensed to a flute with a hazed, orange/straw color, fluffy white head, yeast, tartness, and a touch of cracker in the nose, with green apple tartness, and a touch of pear sweetness in the flavor. Very effervescent, dry, and refreshing! +.3

I’m a little underwhelmed. There’s some nice citrus in the lightly sour nose along with some notes of rubber and beans. Hazy golden body is topped by a light white head that recedes to a partial cover and ring. Mild citrus and plenty of grain in the flavour but it’s really not tart enough. Undercarbonated for style with medium light and somewhat dry texture. Bottle sampled with Beershine, fiulijn and Oakes.

Bottle from CBX. Hazy gold pour with a fizzy short lived head. Aroma is white grape, apple, white wine and lacto. Nice sessionable beer. Lightly tart. Spritzy palate. Light funkiness and fruit. Decent, but i wish it was sour and not tart

Had during RBWG 2010. A nice sour kick with just enough grainy sour wheat. This is good stuff.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A very pale yellow color, lots of carbonation, topped with a thick pillowy white head. The aroma shows lemon, wood notes, pears, apple cider, some barnyard funk. Tart tasting upfront; lemons, lime, pear, but watered down and a bit empty and watery in the finish. Lots going on in the aroma but not so much in the flavor department. Light-bodied. Decent.

Bottle. Yellow pour, pretty clear and some larger white bubbles. Crisp sour aroma, light leather. Flavor is the same, pretty crisp, lemony and dry initially, but there is some sugar in the end.

750ml bottle. Pours a ugly piss yellow, cloudy with a wierd whitish head. Aroma is crazy. Wierd stinky blue cheese, horse blanket and that crusty bread aroma all their beers seem to have. Up front nice moderated lactic sourness with big grainy cereal notes. A little lemon zest and finishes with a modest dry sourness and lingering grain flavor. I dig this.
