Bottle from the brewery. Grapefruit and leather in the nose. Cloudy gold with a good head. Great flavor of leather, old books, grapefruit, low level of sourness. Lovely balance with great citrus and lots of barnyard. Silky, with great, soft carbonation. Awesome. Wish I had another chance to drink these all side by side.
Bottle - Very light funk. Cloudy gold with a small frothy head. Light funk and very mellow and some tartness. The mildest of the three, not bad, just not as exceptional as the rest.
