A very interesting blonde, kind of a murky, rooty opening but with very nice honey / buttery notes featuring prominently. Reminds me of my mom's ginseng tea. Clean, thin body with a light cereal finish. Would be interesting to compare to Double D but that wasn't an option. Yum!
See notes on Slackwater, because this beer was very similar. This one had a bit more alpha, somewhat less resin, making this a little more one-note in flavor (bitter, sweet). Very similar finish. Good, but I did like Slackwater better.
Amber in color, Amber . . . In . . . Flavor? I never know how to describe country lagers/ales. There's a certain commonality with two brother's Domaine Du Page. But this is lighter, and probably a bit less flavorful. Honestly, I like it best in a mix with Totally Naked.

This actually tastes somewhat like an American pilsner, clean, not too bitter, with a beery efforvescence. After a while, I start to notice the yeasty flavors of a Belgian, +which I don't remember from previously) which them comes to completely dominate the flavor profile.
Bottle at Home
This was really tasty. Reminds me a little of some Brett IPAs I've had, though this doesn't seem to have Brett. Slightly grapey, fruity but very dry. It's got the crispness of a nice champagne but definitely some hop fragrance and bitterness as well. If this is the new trend, I'm looking forward to it.
Draft at Bellevue Brewing Company, Bellevue
This was... kind of nasty. Smells good, but you're hit by a really funky, sweaty-something flavor to open. It goes fairly quickly to a sour, decent peach flavor, but the very next sip starts 100% funky all over again. Unlike many sours, this doesn't get better the more you drink.
This didn't taste like a beer at all. Unusual in that this was way more like a Moscato d'Asti or other sweet sparkling dessert wine more than other doesn't-taste-like-a-beer-beers. Sometimes I score highly even if a thing doesn't taste beer-like but I'm not feeling so generous today.
Amber, with the caramel hard candy notes that I associate with barrel aged beers
Well, they're not lying. This is sour, and it tastes like cucumber and lemongrass. It's only mildly sour, but since the other flavors are not sweet at all, it'll pucker you a little bit. It at least will not make you think of savory Vietnamese food. It's not bad at all.
