Draft at the Thirsty Dog tasting room in Akron. Pour was light orange with a one finger head. Aroma of coriander, spices, and yeasts. Some floral notes as well. Taste was rather bland compared to the aroma. Yeasty and floral, but not very well balanced. Carbonation was popping. Mediocre.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Rare beer. Had this side by side next to monkey king, much better. Rather clear in teh glass, must be filtered. On tapat the bocktown. Barely any aroma but what is there is clean. In the taste I do immediately get some of that tart farmy feel in there but it is riding in the back seat. Some beldgy yeast in the background but never becomes totally out of the box. Finish is not bad. If 2 is my average, pretty good overall, at least when compared to monkey king.

Sample at Acoustix Cafe in Akron. The beer is a hazy orange color with a thin white head that recedes to an outer ring quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of dank fruit, spice and malt. Medium body with flavors of ripe fruit, yeast and mild hops. The finish is citrusy and a little funky. Above average overall.
