poured an apricot color with small beige head.
nose was cheese, sour grape and lemon peel
taste was lemon peel, yogurt and cheese funk. Not sure if this one needs age or what, but i found it to be pretty unappetizing.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle shared by xscottypx - thanks a ton, Scotty! Been on my Wants list for a while now. Pours a hazy apple juice color with some medium-sized white bubbles around a few spots on the edge. Aroma of leather, funk, oak, lemon, dust, and mint. Mellow flavor: mild lemon, leather, earth, musty funk, and yogurt. Light-medium bodied, with fairly low carbonation and a mildly tart and funky mouthfeel. I know this had some carbonation issues and supposedly came back to life; it’s still fairly flat but really damn tasty.
