Leftover Limes is a saison-style Wild Specialty Beer, with lime, lime zest and Brettanomyces aged in oak and judged as BJCP Category 28C. The primary aroma of this beer is unmistakable: lime. It's bright and distinct, but as it warms, low, earthy, background aromas of oak and musty Brettanomyces emerge. This beer pours cloudy and orange-colored, with a thin, white head. There are earthy and fusty flavors that combine with a moderate tannic bitterness to make this beer feel dry overall.  It's only mildly carbonated, leaving the finish a bit lifeless. Overall, judging this beer's quality is especially subjective. The bright lime aroma and earthy, tannic flavor are major contrasts and don't exactly complement one another.  For many drinkers, these characteristics will not be a good combination.
