Hazy orange with a small white head that leaves some nice lazing on the wineglass used. Funky somewhat lemony aroma of fruitsugar and wood. Flavor is quite acidic, lemony sweet, fruity and slightly funky with a dry ening. Flavorfull yet quite mild and fruity. Soft light mouthfeel.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
What a great idea. Sour beer and Girardin. I’m guessing the bottles is from 7/07. Clear dark orange, fluffy white head, steady rise of bubbles. Some caramel, mostly lemon juice aroma. Tart and juicy, dry finish. Lots of citrus peel. Little chewy wood.
