4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at Monks Cafe in Phila. Bottom third of the keg. Cloudy peach color with a large frothy foam top. Splashes of lace. Very juicy. Wonderful aroma of powdered sugared fruit candy sours. Pink peaches. Apricots. Nectarines. Yellow plums. Watermelon. This is likely a recent batch because it still holds on to a tremendous amount of its original fruitiness. Just enough dusty dryness for balance. Nearly perfect. Should be wonderful aged but is wonderful now!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle, thanks to Adam, thanks for getting me my whale, missed this every single year! 2013 vintage on the cork. Hazy gold color with still lasting head. Aroma is funky apricot, musty lambic yeast and light acid.
The flavor is tart and sour all together at this point. The yeast is becoming tart and souring in the finish. Carbonation is lively and nicely effervescent. Still a very mild fruit after the swallow but for sure much more tart than fruit juicy. Still a very nice drink.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Shared at a tasting hosted by Steebo on February 13. Vintage 2011. The pour is a pale yellow with a nice finger of white froth, leaving a couple spots of great lace. The aroma is lovely apricot with some strong brett on the middle. There is a little funk and some sharp tartness on the back end. The flavor is just as great. Lots of fruit, a strong tartness and a little applein there. The mouth feel is great. Lots of bubbly carbonation and a coating texture. The aftertaste is strong on sour, really tart lemon. This is great!
