4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rating from 2013. Pour is mostly clear golden orange with a tight white head. Nose has a fair bit of grain and tangy yeast with a focus of leathery bret and some fruity bret in back. Taste is unique, body is medium with very strong carbonation. Loads of bret and fairly sour. Golden fruit bret with some citrus and a tangy yeast underneath. A good bit of peppery spice towards the back. Different, theres an interesting dusty cobweb mid palate. decent.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Cloudy, the color of peach fuzz, with one finger of pure white foam. Beautiful, fantastic, superlative aroma. Honey is apparent, as are sweet, floral notes alongside white pepper, vinegar, a touch of bretty funk and a splash of fresh strawberry. In the flavor, too, are good things: Honey-drizzled strawberries, nearly ripe. Fresh-cracked pepper. Barnyard funk. A touch of grass. A spash of tartness. Tastes green like strawberry vines, with incredible balance. Fluffy, whipped medium-light body. Gentle carbonation. Has the perfect amount of funk, vinegar and fruit flavor. Absolutely delicious.
