Thanks, Wil, for giving me yet more beer! You motorboatin' son of a bitch! Genesis is highly effervescent, so effervescent in fact that it crackles on the pour. The straw golden liquid is very pale and a mild haze runs throughout. The foam is white, large bubbled and very active. It rises to a slim cap but snaps, crackles, and pops down t absolutely nothing in a half second. After the head fizzles away it looks like apple juice.

The nose is both unique and intense. A solid dose of minerals with a slight metallic edge push through first. There's a touch of lactic funk that leans toward soured milk but don't fret, it goes well with the addition of fruit. The pineapple and guava are certainly noticeable, the other two fruits are indistinct. There's also a bit of diaper stank that segues into pig pen. The malt base is faint but sugar cookie driven. As the beer warms the vinous white wine notes begin to dominate.

The flavor profile isn't quite as deep as the nose but still very good. Lactic acid combines with pineapple and forms the main flavor component. Minerality brings an assortment of flavors; wet stone, iron, and soft wet oak. Guava and the other tropical fruits add a unique sweetness. As this beer warms huge white wine notes step forward and actually takes over.

A light and effervescent body fits the style well. The body itself is a shade under medium in weight and the carbonation lively. The middle has a touch of sweetness but it dries up on the swallow with an almost chalky finish. The tartness makes me salivate after each drink, instantly grabbing for another.

Genesis is another good, really unique beer from Wicked Weed. It morphs so much from opening to finishing the bottle that it's hard to believe. It's everything from funky to fruity to sweet to dry to white wine. I'd like to have another bottle of this for a few months down the road. Thanks again, Wil!
