look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
22 oz. bottle served in a Southern Tier Tulip. 2012 vintage, bottle #100/312.
A: Pours a hazy lemon color with a pure white head forming on the pour. It recedes quickly to a thin ring. Some splotchy lace is left down the glass.
S: Slightly lemony with a sweet malt backing. Puckering with some grass. Slightly sour with some berry flesh fruitiness.
T: Sweet malt with some chalkiness. Pale malts, sweet fruit flesh with some light puckering lemon grass. A mild funkiness to the finish.
M: Light and dry with a chalky mouthfeel to it. Medium high carbonation.
O: Solid overall, a little to chalky for my liking and I'd like to have a little more complexity to it.

Bottle 26 of 216
Appearance: Pours a murky apricot color without much of a head and, what there is, fades quickly, leaving a few dots and dashes
Smell: As the beer warms, the paw paw aromatics come through, bringing the subtle hints of banana, lemon, passion fruit, star apple and guava; plenty of Bretty funk, too
Taste: The malt bill of an APA underpins the explosion of fruit and sour flavors that build in the middle; before the tart flavors, the paw paw really delivers with banana, star apple and passion fruit until it gets overwhelmed by lactic sourness; funky Brett flavors develop in the aftertaste, but the finish is primarily sour
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with low to moderate carbonation; puckery
Overall: We grow paw paws in North Carolina, too, so I have some idea what they are all about and this beer really shows them off well; I suspect the sourness has built over the last few years this beer has aged in my cellar; a first rate effort
