3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Tustin Brew Co. Pours a lightly hazy yellow with small white head. Aroma is lemon kitchen cleaner forward and somewhat off putting. Mild funk but nothing that really dominates like the Pledge odor. Taste is lactic lemon and fruit. Some dry white wine notes but again, an almost fake lemon going on here.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy golden orange with a finger of white head. A very good lactic tartness. Plenty of lemon, some white wine, green melon, and a soft citrus note. Very mild musty funk, some straw, and a bit of grass. The flavor is well balanced. Moderate lactic tartness with some lemon peel, melon, and a light unripe strawberry note. Some hints of oak and vanilla, a touch of white wine, and a little grass. A really nice acidity on the finish, nice and dry, too. Reminds me a lot of Temptation.
