Bottle was a little over a year old. Pours a hazzy light yellow. Immediately the funk hits, smell is great. Light crisp taste.

750 ml cage-corked bottle - Bottled April 2015 (Batch # 8) - Poured into a tulip glass:

Pours hazed lemon-drop yellow with a large white foamy head. Web-like trailing lace sticks.

The smell is of funky yeast, coriander, black peppercorn, kumquat and general citrus.

The taste is of funky yeast, coriander, black peppercorn. Sweet bready malt backbone. Spicy dry finish.

Spritzy carbonation in a fuller-side of light body.

An interesting brew. Qute a bit going on - almost goes in different directions but pulls together nicely. Fruity, spicy, funky (not overly so), bittersweet. A unique brew.

Paid 13 and change for the 750 ml bottle.

Pours a bit foamy head (half the pint glass) on the lightest straw body.
The aroma is a big hit of spices and flowers. Nice.
The taste is fairly clean, a little spice, mellow fruits and finishes with a mild lemon bitterness.
The texture is crisp.
The aroma is great, the flavor may get better with age.
