Yes, Jon. Aroma is mulled apple cider. Or applesauce with pork and sauerkraut. Flavor has a great sour with an acidic kiwi note. Very lactic but has a great balance. And biscuit. Definite biscuit.

Sampled during RBWG 2013. Hazy golden pour with a small offwhite head. Light fruit, doughy malts, and lactic tartness. Not bad.

Served on-tap at the brewpub. Reviewed from notes.
A - Pours pale, cloudy yellow with a one finger tall white head leaving little to no lace at all on the glass.
S - Smells of day old wheat bread, dulled Kiwi and Lemon fruitiness, some dry yeast and a bit of lactic sourness. I just wish the fruit came through a little more.
T - Taste is very similar to the nose. Kinda bready up front, Kiwi and lemon are a little brighter here, combining with the light lactic tartness to make a nice finish.
M - Light body with moderately low carbonation. My only problem is the feel, it is kinda watery from the start and it doesn’t improve.
O - It is very easy to drink and it has some nice flavor but the feel just kills it. With a little refinement I think this one could be a very nice beer.

Growler provided by mixylplik3, thanks for the opportunity Matt.
Pours a deeply hazy straw color without much of a head. Smells of funky and citric fruit with a bit of kiwi thrown into it. The flavor is lightly tart with a nice citric and kiwi thing going on with a hint of funk and a sulfur rotten fruit flavor that luckily doesn’t dominate or stick around very long. Light body with a lightly tart puckering mouthfeel and a moderate level of carbonation. This is a light easy to drink beer that would go great sitting on the deck when it gets a little warmer.

Growler shared at RBWG! Pours a hazy golden yellow with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave light lacing. Aroma of tart fruit, some tropical notes, a little bit of wheat. Taste follows, some citrus with a bittersweet finish. Good stuff.

From two different growlers at RBWG, one filled a few days before the other. I think Markwise had one, not sure who brought the other. Pours a hazy yellow straw with a small fizzy white head. Nose is lemon, kiwi (i was super impressed with myself that i found this without knowing it was there), light tropical fruits. Flavor is lactic and mineral-like, nice spritzy mouth feel that most closely resembles a dickinsonbeer Berliner. Tasty, easy drinking.
