On tap at The Lion's Pride, served in a tulip.

Gold color with a thick white head, a good two fingers. It left a lot of lace.

Grassy, earthy hops. Some citrus and fruit. Sweet malt.

The hops dominated the taste. There was a little grapefruit, but more in the way of pineapple. A sweet biscuit background.

Nicely hopped, very drinkable. Not as funky as the name implied.

On tap at Meridian Pint before their Allagash and New Belgium event.

Pours a fairly-hazy bright-ish yellow color with a nice bite head and some ringy lacing on the way down. Collar throughout.

The nose has some bright aromatics with a good bit of citrus an some mild pineapple. A touch of cherry and earth behind that. Mild spice. The flavor has some pineapple and other tropical notes. There's a touch of bitterness and just a slight chewiness. There is a faint, faint touch of acidity as well.

Light-medium body with that nice light acidity and accompanying bitterness. Yet again, Oxbow really kills the mouthfeel. Awesome.

Had on tap at Nosh Bow.

Decent creamy head, clear honey orange color.

Nose light funk, bit of Brett funk, light malty toasted grainy, bit fruity hop, grassy, very fresh beer aroma

Nice malt, toasted slight grainy malt, fresh malt flavor, very very light Brett funk, light bready. Nice hop character, little grassy some earthy hint pine and even touch fruity bit of hay and grass like. Finish is drier, fairly bitter with more grassy hop and little bready.

Mouth is med bod decent carb.

Overall ok but nothing too special, decent hops and malts, very little funk.

First had: on tap at Monk's, Philly, PA

Hazy, golden-yellow pour with a creamy white head that retained well, and left layers of light lacing on the glass. Nice aroma, fruity esters, citrusy hops, fresh cut grass. Taste was similar to the nose, citrusy hops and tropical fruit, biscuity malts, fresh grass, light earthy funk, herbal tea, and a touch of lemony sourness. Crisp and clean mouthfeel, light-medium body, and easily drinkable.

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

Appearance: Arrives amber with a modest head; some drizzly lace remains

Smell: Biscuity, citrusy and spicy with a bit of leathery Brett

Taste: A nice flavor progression, starting with the biscuit, adding some citrus, then spicy and finally, the Brett; citrusy on the finish, as well

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: A really nice beer that pushes a lot of buttons
