3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours orangey gold with a coarse froth. Tart golden apple aroma, coriander apparent, slight champagne. Flavor is nondescript acidic grains, apple cider, vinegar. Mouthfeel is quite tepid, needs more carbonation. Near the end of the glass the chamomile emerges, giving it a strange herbal vegetal tinge.

Draught @ The Rare Barrel, Berkeley, CA
Pours orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of tart fruits, spices, wood, oak and yeast. Taste is smooth, tartish fruity and exotic spicy with some wood, sour vinegar, vanilla, grainy malts and yeast. Finish is smooth, grainy and yeasty with some sourish vinegar, tart fruits, oak and wood. Almost like drinking a mix of a sour saison and some green tea.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2014 Tap. Pours hazy golden, medium creamy white head, good lacing. Aroma is fruity, lemon, a bit peppery, floral, interesting spices. Flavor is light sweet, light tart, perhaps ginger and green peppercorn? Medium body, spritzy. Nice. Not really getting a lot of coriander, which is not a bad thing for me.
