Picked up in growler form from Libation Station in Johnson City, TN.
A: Cloudy, kind of soft gold color. Poured without much head, but it settled nicely into a little less than a fingers' worth. Minimal lacing as it was going down.
S: Nothing too special, pretty faint actually. You can just get a hint of funk coming out of this beer, but not nearly anything overwhelming.
T: I was surprised at how much flavor this had considering how light the smell was. Nice full bit of earthiness and dirt to it, and maybe even a bit of sage sneaking in. I'm not getting the hops that other folks are mentioning though.
M: Light overall. Since it doesn't seem to be overly carbonated it doesn't really 'pop' in your mouth, and it develops a kind of weird finish a few seconds after you take a sip.
D: Not too shabby. I'm halfway through the growler...
Serving type: growler

22oz bottle served in a Prairie Teku
Thanks to Yoshi Optimator for this one! Cheers!
A - Hazy amber/apricot color with 2 fingers of soapy tan bubbles. Zero lacing with a thin cap.
S - Earthy citrus, acidic, white wine, granny smith apples, sharp sourdough bread, dusty grains, over ripe tropical fruit, pineapple and mango, sweet but funky. Fruity alcohol coming through.
T - Follows the nose with earthy citrus, grainy bread, peppery, old grass, apple juice, muted lemons, dry yeast. There's a hint of acidity, but not as much as the nose describes. The finish brings more pepper along with some bitter melon rind.
M - Annoyingly high carbonation, you can't hold a drink in your mouth for more than 2 seconds or it just completely turns to foam. The body is thin for a split second. So you have extreme opposites.
I'm not exactly sure but pretty sure this is a few years old. An interesting beer for sure. The mouthfeel threw it off a little for me. I'm not a fan of swallowing straight foam. Great aroma. The funk is delicate without being light, very earthy with notes of sourdough bread and tropical fruit.
