corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Draft at Farmersí Cabinet. Pours a hazy golden straw color with a one finger white foam head that quickly settles into thin ring. †Spotty lacing left behind. Slightly funky, earthy aroma with †musty farmhouse yeast, grass, straw and citrus fruit. †Strong lemon peel/citrus presence with a touch of sourdough bread. Medium bodied with tart, puckering mouthfeel thatís pleasantly sour without being acidic/acetic. †Funky with some musty brett and lactic funk. †Wheat elements noticeable with zesty spice, bread and crisp, sweet citrus. †Lots of lemon zest giving off equal parts spice and sweetness. †Crisp but dry and lightly sour. †Lingering sourness with subtle vibegar in finish. †Really well balanced and extremely quaffable. †

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - APR 13, 2012
Tap at Farmers in Alexandria VA with the brewers. Brilliant white SRM with acid cut foam. Awesome tropical dry hop nose with fresh limeade and strawberry daiquiri. Great nose. Taste is excellent- clean and quenching with full lactic sourness. Amazing session able. Could easily drink a pitcher of this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DeputyAndy (636) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2012
Draft at Farmerís Cabinet with friends. Pours a clear straw yellow with no head. Aroma is just like slightly old peaches that have been left out. Taste is nice and crisp, mildly fruity, and very dry. I thought it was a lower alcohol percentage than it is. but itís still very refreshing.

phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - MAY 12, 2012
Tap @ CBC, courtesy of Terry. Pours the same color as citrus juice, small white head. Aroma is full of pungent grape fruit, lemon juice, green apples, lime, tropical fruit juice, pineapple - amazing! A bit of lactic yoghury notes, but the fruitiness steals the spotlight. Taste opens with huge passion fruit and peach - pineapple and lime. Amazig fruitiness. Nice tartness similar to passion fruit, and a bit of lacto acidity. So well balanced. A bit of mineral saltiness in the finish. Drinks pretty fucken good.

Sample @ Cbc. Pours light yellow, almost green, with a white head. Elderberries and vinegar notes in aroma. Very sour with notes of elderberries and pear. Dry finish that reminds me of currant seeds. Refreshing.

deflagro (106) - Lund, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2012
Draught at CBC. Pale yellow, slightly cloudy. Amazingly tart and refreshing with nice citrus notes. Really full-bodied despite its low ABV. The biggest (positive) surprise of the festival.

Very well balanced and massively drinkable.
