Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, crystal clear, honey-yellow coloring with a ton of carbonation throughout and a tall, foamy, frothy, bright white head. Aromas of toasted grains, floral highlights, buttered bread, cut grass, and subtle hints of honey and cracker. Flavors are grassy up front, with hints of evergreen and honey, on a cracker backbone. Effervesced and light body, with a roasted and toasted character towards the end of the palate. The aftertaste is more of the toasty and grainy characteristics, with hints of sweetness. The finish is frothy and effervesced, with a lingering grassy and tangy sweet character. Different take on the style, and definitely refreshing on a hot day.

Batch 2

Pours a hazy bright golden yellow color with a one finger white head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind.

Funky sulfuric aroma with hints of egg salad and fart along with musty bugs and light fruit.  The sulfuric presence is really strong and pretty unpleasant but there is a musty, earthy brett presence and light fruit esters balancing things out.  Subtle grainy adjunct presence as well.  

Slightly funky but light bodied and much easier to drink than anticipated.  Dry and earthy with subtle wood and sulfur along with funky bugs and light fruit notes. Decent dry brett presence with a touch of sulfuric funk followed by grainy adjuncts as well as some apple and pear sweetness.
