3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub - Pours lightly hazy golden orange with a white head. The aroma has apricots, citrus, cheese and funk that is very lambic-esque. It has a medium / light body with light semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor begins with lemony citrus, cheese, sharp stone fruits and citrus that is on the sharp lemon/grapefruit side. The finish is very acidic on the lactic / citric side. Quite nice.

Bottle @ Van Moll Brewpub split by four. Nice lightly unclear orange color, decent sized white head. Aroma is light to moderately sweetish, some peach, apricot and raspberry. Very fruity anyway. Taste lightly sour, very fruity again, raspberry, apricot, some peach. Soft and round, balanced and full of flavor all at once. Very nice indeed.
