Light brown with an amber hue crowned by a light lacing, slightly tan head. Fantastic farmhouse aroma, pungent and fresh, with hints of oak in the back. Taste is refreshing and not as sour as the nose, still sour tho. More wood is evident in the taste and also some burnt caramel. Light body and mellow carbonation.

On tap at CBC2012. Beer in the glas reddish, small head. Dry-sour aroma. Starts mild-sour, fruity like berries. Finish dry-sour, almost a bit dusty. Finish less fruity, sourish aftertaste. Not my favourite.
