3.88/5  rDev -8.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a stemmed wine glass on tap. Hard to score this one as a listed farmhouse radler.

An extremely pale lemon yellow, nearly looks like it's going to melt away before my eyes and with a very watery like appearance. It does look like a radler, but for a beer it looks flat and a bit expected soda like. Minimal laced collar and no head presented.

Well aroma delivers and it smells radler. Soda grapefruit and Orangina drink. Where's the funk and brett on this as hinted from the lacto and brett menu description? However it is pleasant, somewhat non artificial smelling and quite clean and quite enjoyable.

Radler like image presented in the palate. Bubblegum, taffy, lots of jolly rancher and slurping sucking candy flavors. Soda flat grapefruit character with a huge spritzy zest and muted and mellow carbonation. Soda crisp but not gaseous, also very oily and zesty to match.

Speaking with the server he asked me about it and I wondered where the brett was. He remarked that the brewer said the lacto didn't take, and that's quite obvious. Still that doesn't make for a bad product, but it's basically just a decent radler, and I am sure this could easily drink and sell like hotcakes to quick and easy crowd. Makes me also wonder too if the wild yeasts really worked how different good/bad this would be also. Tough to score this one.

On-tap at Right Proper Brewing Company, Washington, DC

A: The beer is very hazy pale light yellow in color. It poured with a half finger high bright white head that died down and left a patch of bubbles in the center and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrus zest are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste is dominated by strong flavors of citrus—oranges stand out in particular—and these linger through the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and slightly tart on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer tastes like someone stood over the brew kettle with a citrus zester. It is refreshing and easy to drink.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

12 oz. pour into their characteristic long-stem wine glass, unknown brewing/kegging date, drank over 30 minutes

A: 3/3 - beautiful off golden coloration, very murky (cannot read or see through), large frothy white head received and retained as at least one finger; tight white effervescent bubbles pour off the bottom of the glass; small alcohol legs

S: 9/12 - lots of citrus mixed with earthy hop flavors (Citra and Galaxy in the dry hop); there's also a Brett complexity with some musky, earthy notes

T: 16/20 - on the anterior tongue, there is a subtle bitterness and sourness that blends nicely together; in the middle of the mouth, the muted sourness continues to develop with some saison-ish spice, coriander and peach; finishes dry and inviting

M: 4/5 - light body, effervescent, low alcohol presence, high drinkability

O: 8/10 - a style that I'm not familiar (heard a stadler compared to a shandy, which this is not); definitely an enjoyable, refreshing saison-esque beer, but, when I read that it was brewed with Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus and co-brewed with Mike T., The Mad Fermantionist, I was hoping for something funkier, more complex and sour; overall enjoyable nonetheless and, for $6/pour, it's a good price point; RP just needs to start growler filling all their beers!

TOTAL - 40/50

From 04/25/14 notes. Had on tap at the brewery in DC.

a - Pours a hazy, pale yellow color with one finger of fluffy white head and moderate to high carbonation evident.

s - Smells of spices, floral hops, yeast, lots of brett, lacto notes, oranges, lemon, fruits, and bread. Nice nose, very nice brett to it.

t - Taste follows the nose pretty closely. Tastes of delicious brett, oranges, citrus, yeast, grains, floral notes, citrus hops, bread, earthy notes, and lacto.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Easy to drink.

o - Overall a very good beer; this was actually probably my favorite of the beers I tried by them just edging out Range Life Mosaic. Nice brett throughout, well worth checking out.
