look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

For starters I love the art work on this bottle (received as an extra from @hambone85) which made it peak my interest right away.

Appearance: hazy yellow with 3 fingers of bright white that quickly disappears.

Smell: citrus, yeast, & a little funk.

Taste: just like the smell, citrus, tropical fruit, and funkiness.

Mouthfeel: more carbonation than a lot of other sessions I've had recently m

Overall: I would definitely drink it again.

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the bottle into a wine glass.

Buttery yellow opaque color, with a sense of lemon slightly. A bleach white sudsy head about two fingers on creation but dissolves quickly. Sort of looks like light tang in a glass slightly.

Real impressive nose, with tropical mango notes and light juicy fruit. Hints at some faint grain and dough a little as well. Not much brett quality or funk.

Palate comes with a very light peach fruit. Good dough finish but some of the fruit character hinting on the nose isn't coming through as much. A little bit of wet watery wet grain finish, but with a hint of tartness and very light.

Hardly any hint of barrel aging character, but an impressive nose. However, this comes out more like a berliner weisse or something strangely to me.

Serving type: bottle
