Nice dry tart, sour, mouth-puckering beer here. Super light and effervescent. Medium to mild funk. Nice light fruit flavor.

Tap @ Upright... This was far better than the regular Lactovasilios. This version a blend of barrels that once held Fantasia and Sole Comp Barrel Aged 5. A bit sharper and slightly more acidic. Vinous wine like tones with citrus and lactic acid. Refreshing and much cleaner than the straight Pinot aged version. A significant increase in quality.

Shared with Shawn at his flat. Thanks, man. Pours a golden metallic with a trimmed whitish ring. Aromas of buckwheat, barnyard, cucumber, biscuits, and apricots. Tastes of everything described, with the addition of cotton, Greek yoghurt, ginger syrup, and Saltine crackers by swallow. Buttery.

Bottle courtesy of GT2, thanks for making sure I got some of this! Poured a slightly hazy yellow-orange color. Light, slightly tart, citrus notes, in the aroma. Flavor is tart, slightly funk notes. Not bad at all! Really liked this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Trransparent gold, puffy white head that falls off quick. Sticky nose of vanilla, light lemon, not enough grain or lactic balance though light scents of milky grain with warmth. Some pedio kicks up with stirs. Light flavor, slight mineral, milky dough front and mid, lemon throughout, more grain and gravel in finish with toast lasting long. Nose needs more balance, softest Berliner flavor I’ve ever tried.

Bottle. Pours cloudy yellow gold with quickly dissipating white head. Nose and taste of tart lemon, banana, wheat malt, light soured citrus, lactose, saison yeast and light peach breads. Body is on the lighter side of medium. Refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Clear golden ale with no head. The nose is tangy, woody and a touch buttery. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavor is tangy - not quite tart – and offers some nice fruitiness. The tangy, lightly buttery finish leans toward the flat and mundane. The diacetyl is distracting, but not a total buzz-kill. Good beer overall. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!
