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

Bottle: 8/4/11

A: Light, yet rich & warm, golden. First pour is clear with lots of big bubbles zinging up to a large bright white cap of foam. Retention is great & lacing is pretty good.

S: Floral & softly herbal. Lots of fruity sweetness – pears, apples, stone fruits, & white grape – more juicy than estery. Good amount of background pale malt. A bit of a lemony sour / tart impression. Hint of pepper & funk phenols. Ghost hint of grassy hops. Just a bit soft for strength, but nice overall.

T: Not as fruity or floral as the nose, but a lot more funky & tart & a bit sour. Opesn with a touch of sweetness & citrus fruit on a doughy & wheaty malt background. As malts quickly fade the citrus gets increasingly lemon and tart. A fair bit of citrus/grapefruit rind and lemon peel. Tartness is quite firm, and mixes in with earthy, white pepper, herbal, spicy, barnyard, & phenols notes from yeast and hops. Touch of sour throught, but especially noticeable at first. End & finish are quite earthy and herbal. Bitterness is fair, but plays second fiddle to tartness and funk.

M: On the light side with CO2 that is firm but super finely textured. Soft & smooth. Very attenuated. Fair bit of pucker from sour / tart aspect. Very drying starts from tart / sour / attenuation and continues with herbal / hop drying. Very cleansing.

D: Creative, interesting, and tasty. With the tart/sour/funk this may not be for everyone. But for those that like this sort of beer, this one is very solid & super drinkable.
