Holy moly, can't believe this is the first review of this beer on BA (lines up knuckles, steps up to the plate). Had this up in Tahoe before the Primus show on corpulent's bday.

Pours a bright yellow color with 1/3" white head. Almost glowing. I think this is a blend of Broadacres and a wild ale? Not sure. Aroma of lemon sour power, substantial dry neutral oak quotient.

Taste is an above average sourness level, hitting all the woody white grape, hay and lemon warhead notes. Real light body. Carbonation was just fine on my waxed bottle. Sure it was a little acidic, but not at all problematic. I liked everything about this beer, even though it does nothing out of the norm from over a hundred other beers just like it.

These are pricey though, I think I paid $15/375ml. That is the only downside.
