3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I’ve been wanting to try this one for over a year. I love me a good dry-hopped Brett beer, and this is one of the greats of the genre. So, imagine my happiness when I popped the cap, poured it into a glass, and smelled all of that barnyard funk goodness. Then, imagine how confused I got when I actually tasted it. The flavor starts off good, with funk, leather, and earth, but it finishes with a big note of ... fish. Weird. I’ve heard Nelson Sauvin described as giving a "cat pee" taste before -- is that what I’m getting? Whatever it is, it’s pretty unpleasant, and it torpedoes an otherwise really good funky beer.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy straw yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma is funk, spicy and peppery yeast, citrus, and this is the first time I can clearly see what is meant by "barnyard" - makes me think of a horse, but in a good way. Flavor is softer on all counts, with some funk and barnyard standing out. Has lively carbonation and a medium body. Nice.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Brett and a huge load of Nelson Sauvin hops means that ’Merica is one dank yeasty, funky beer. This yellow-gold brew smells like... Well, if the rain forest exhibit at your closest zoo had sweaty, nasty sex with the local feedlot, this is the type of smell you would get as a result. It’s attractive only in the upside-down world of disgusting aesthetics. The flavor works that way, too. It’s a weird mix of tropical, barnyard, and earth. Bone dry citrusy finish. It’s a remarkable brew that absolutely shouldn’t drank immediately after enjoying a bomber of Anchorage Love Buzz by yourself (unless you want farts that could usher in an apocalypse).

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
on tap @ Vino Bellissimo - Lima OH --- Clear bright light golden amber, off-white head that sinks to a thick cover, full lace curtain. Taste is mild malt, mild carbonation, and light sour/bitter in a somewhat short finish. A lot of abv in small brew. Not so effective.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Old Town (2016 bottle with new label). Classic prairie nose with some grain and dry brett on the nose, some dried pineapple, lemon zest and apricot as it warms. Lots of brett on the palate, with more pineapple, wheat and lime. Some pepper on the dry finish. Very quaffable and refreshing.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle into a tulip. Pours a hazy light yellow, with a big white head that lasts. Nose is bubble gum, banana, and cloves. Taste is dry, slightly tart, with a long, long finish. Variation on the classic saison taste. The wine yeast and Brett give it a very well-balanced, juicy taste. Touch of funk on the finish tops it off. Outstanding.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Biervana. The wine barrel and the farmhouse are strong with this one. Aroma of white wine, stables, wine yeast, spices, aroma hops. Medium body with a very lively carbonation propelling the soft sourness. Tart sour dry finish. Well done!
