2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from the rotter. Nose is light fruit, tropical, citrus zest. Light hay and funkiness. Very clear pale yellow with a small white head. Taste is immaculately bland with just a faint tartness and a light acidity. Very thin, watery. Very disappointing flavor.

The pour was a clear medium yellow with a small wispy white head. It possesses hints of a musty Brett yeast, tropical fruit (mango & papaya) and a touch of white wine. This brew has a nice tropical fruity taste upfront then sliding in is a slight vinous presence and a bit of funky sourness right at the end. All I can say I is YUM!!!

Pours hazy apricot. Aroma is mostly sour apple, with hints of yeast and butterscotch. Flavor is fruity plus butterscotch and malty hints. Texture is OK, average viscosity and minimal fizz.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Pours lightly hazed and yellow with a small, fizzy, white head that’s gone faster than you can say “quick.” The aromatic standouts here are nice, fruity notes of mango and guava. I don’t particularly like guava. It’s a weird fruit. I’m picking up some fresh bandages as well. Is that a faint smoky component? The nose ends up being pretty complex. The flavor is basically the same as a Berliner weisse - grainy, citrusy and tart, but no moreso than any of the hundreds of Florida Weisses I’ve tried. Tasty and enjoyable, but not a fantastic beer. Doesn’t have to be. But the price… Bottle provided by biggsbowler!

Bottle spilt with Jenny during our snow day and Scream marathon. Clear, crisp, golden pour with moderately light white head. Really nice nose of hay, pineapple, oak, tutti frutti gum, orange juice. Flavor is funky with more reminders of tartness from fruit than actual tartness. Chardonnay, guava, pineapple. Almost an amarillo hop like finish, which makes me think dry hopping this bad boy would be awesome. Funky and tangy fruit finish. Great stuff!

3oz on tap at the downstairs taproom. Labeled 6.6%. Wonderful kind of cake-like malt to this. White cake. And a nice, citrusy juicy tropical fruitiness. Moderate-plus sour taste. Nice lighter sweet balance. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Light slick finish. Medium-plus body. Clear golden, slight orange color. Pretty much no head. Fantastic, balanced, easy-drinking yet bright, flavorful and punchy sour.

Thanks, Carl! Excellent sour blonde. Clear golden pour. Huge tart aroma and lots of tropical fruit abound. The taste brings in the white wine barrel presence with again a heavy dose of the fruits (mango and pineapple especially) and tarts. Just a minimal bitter finish. Light bodied and good carbonation.

On tap at the Funkatorium. Yellow pour with a white head. Sour fruit aromas. Lots of sour "tropical" fruit notes here. A bit one dimensional. Good body and mouthfeel.
