Hazed orange amber with a moderate white spotting and edgework.
Nose is tangy dark fruit, bitter orange, menthol notes, dank woody tones, damp straw, light spice.

Medium bodied, fine carbonation, tangy citric sherbet notes in the close.

Bottle at Avenue Pub. Pours a clear yellow with small frothy white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is rubber, funk, and dill. Thin mouthfeel with strong funk and dill pickle flavor with nice lingering tart finish.

smell is lambic, together with this full, grainy(?? ) ness.
low carbo, sour background, but very ’sweet’ up front / tastes more like a comploex lambic, than a geuze . dont get much of the ’white’ character though ...
