look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

500 mL bottle. crown indicates "WWE APR 2019 Lot: 687". I think. I assume I could have set this down a while...

opens as a bit of a gusher. I can see the yeast coming from this bottle, which is a bit disappointing as they could of had a better grasp of their conditioning levels. ah, the show shall go on though!

A: pours very, very hazy. a brownish, orange hue. the small glass I am using lets me try again in about 20 minutes. same result. also I should note that this bottle has been vertically standing in my fridge for the last several weeks. minimal head and lacing.

S: sulfur is the first aroma I get and a lot of it. after getting past the sulfur, which takes some concentration, a nice aroma of barny funk and light acidity greats.

T: sulfur follows to the drink, but then the acidity starts to kick in with a little more balls. barny yes, but not too heavy on it. more puckering acidic flavor balanced by some woody oak notes. finish dries up, but not bone dry as I detect a minor residual sweetness. There is some Cowtail (the candy)-like flavors in the middle that I cannot quite put my finger on. interesting to say the least.

M: pretty vibrant carb on a medium bodied brew.

D: needs some cleaning up in the packaging and sulfur component, which was WAYYY to high for a brew like this IMO. I sampled this in the store I purchased it at and liked it a lot more then, however I also didn't get this sulfur nonsense then. also also, the bottle the sir opened did not spew on my table.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy beige head that fades to nothing. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with malt, fruit, funk, and earth aromas. Taste is much the same with sour malt, fruit, and acidic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty but has an odd quality in the smell that I can't put my finger on.
