PorterPounder (5881) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2010
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 750 ml cage corked bottle. Pours a urine specimen hazy dark golden with a bit of a puffy white head. Tart aroma with some slight hints of lemon and a heavy does of yeast. flavor has a heavy grainy presence and it reminds me somewhat of fruity pebbles. Yeastiness permeates throughout. Some lemony tart accents in the back end redeem it just a bit. Mouthfeel has some decent carbonation. Overall, just a tad underwhelmed.
