Bottled 750ml (PBF)
Golden, slighlty hazy color, small white head. Hayish, peppery, fruity aroma. Light bodied. Light grassy flavor, fruity flavors, fizzy carbonation (!). Probably good with food but as a session beer just too lame.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A: The pour is pale straw in color with a big, fluffy, white head that slowly dies down but clings to the glass.
S: There are some decently spicy esters to open up, but that quickly gives way to a more wild character. Lots of grass and lemon, particularly lemon zest. Quite a bit of lactobacillus notes to it.
T: This is surprisingly tart, mostly from lemon zest and lemon juice type of lactic flavors. Grassy hops and a very slight bitterness to the beer. Just a bit of pale cracker malts as the base. This is very dry, almost always good.
M: The body is light to medium, appropriate for a table beer. Quite high in terms of carbonation with a drying finish.
D: I quite liked this. Surprisingly strong in terms of the lactic traits, but I enjoy that. Quite complex and interesting for a "table" beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Capped 750 from Malt & Vine. Pours lightly hazy gold with creamy white head. Aroma is mostly sour and citric. Second shot gets some funk as the head melts away. Med body at least. Flavor is a little tart, a little citrus, some gummy funk. Very dry. Not getting the nobility of the hop, but that’s ok. Tastes great.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured a hazy yellow color with a large frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate floral, herbs, citrus and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy complex sweet flavor with a medium to heavy spice sweet finish of moderate to long duration. I would recommend this to a friend.
