I’ve had this beer many times and I think it is really great.

Look: semi-clear light golden with a three-inch thick head.

Aroma: bready aroma with lemon and grapefruit

Taste: taste like sourdough bread, lemon, grapefruit, sour grapes, perhaps some mango, and not too sour.

Feel: medium body, dry and tart, I loved it.

This beer is fire. Great tart funk on the nose with hints of tropical citrus - very complex aroma with a bit of bready notes and hay. Similar taste of mild sourness with pineapple, grapefruit, mango. Brett complexity of funk. Great beer. These guys really blow me away sometimes.

500mL bottle poured into a Teku glass
A: Light orange overall but a hazy white hue permeats
S: Sour, bready, lemon, grapefruit
T: Citrus (grapefruit/lemon), sourdough bread, a bit of vinegar or sour grapes
M: Medium-bodied, some wheat dough but mostly sour (in a good mouthwatering way)
O: An enjoyable wild ale, tasty just not overly funky/complex

16.9 oz bottle split between three shaker pints. I don't see a date on the bottle, but it's dark.

Pours a hazy white-gold with a tiny head. Smells tart, bready and citrus, strong funk.

Taste is dominated by funk, noticeable (but not overpowering) sour, a little mango or some other tropical fruit. Nice.

Mouthfeel is dry but thick. Overall, nice beer.

First had poured from 16.9-oz. bottle, acquired in Norman, Okla., stamped "17416," into hotel water glass. Almost Berliner Weiss-like, the most notable part of this beer is the dry hopping. Drink fresh.

500 mL bottle. Big white head. Golden orange body. Smells of lemon, yeast, strong hops, and light Theraflu. Tastes of pungent lemon and grapefruit. Tart lemon. Faintest bit of sweet pale malt. Yeasty with that bit of Theraflu. Mosaic comes through as it warms. Pungent garlic with a strong bite. Lingering yeasty bitter finish. Medium high carbonation. Medium body. Again the Theraflu isn't my favorite flavor, but this works. Especially as it warms.
