Bottle @ RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting. Thanks, Anders. Hazed golden pour with a white head. Sweet tarts, lemon peel, and tart green melon on the nose. Some musty funk, a hint of mushroom, and damp oak. Nice. Flavor is very mildly funky, but tons of tartness and fruit character. Good honeydew, lemon, and tart, underripe peach. Some sweet tart candies, too.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at the RBSG14 Grand Tasting - Pours milky yellow with a white head. The aroma has cheese, sourness, melons and somewhat lambic-esque. It has a medium rich body with soft carbonation. The flavor begins with lots of funk, some richness, cobweb malt, but the funk overwhelms anything to keep it on track. There seems to be a bit of alcohol noticed which is odd for the lower alcohol in this one. Really pleasing to drink.
