White Gold

750 mL bottle purchased at the brewery (or maybe Finger Lakes Beverage in Ithaca), either way, close to the source!
Batch: E!022
opening the cap gives me a gusher, and quite a profound one. It takes several minutes before the cascading, fine foam relents by which time maybe a quarter of the contents of the bottle are on the counter.
Poured in two separate portions into a 16 oz glass. The first pour gives a murky, yellow or butterscotch color with some good head. The head does fade rather fast though to leave some watery lace.
The nose gives an odd combo of light funk (unexpected) and some wheat notes. The taste reflect some of that, but also give a funky Belgian yeast taste and some alcohol sweetness – slightly Tripel like.
The second pour gives a much murkier body and as the yeast and sediment settles, some really NASTY looking green/gray particles. So nasty that I decided to drain-pour the last third of the glass rather than drink it. Normally I gobble up the yeasties but this really looked unappetizing.
Given the gushing, and the slightly funky tastes, I suppose it’s possible that this beer COULD be a little infected, but it’s difficult to tell for sure.
This is a bit of hybrid beer and I’m not sure tha tit works all that well.
