3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Super clear golden pour with a small white film of a head. No lace, the first sip revealed a good amount of carbonation. Nice dry, dusty, funky aroma with notes of green apple and white wine. Flavors were very vinous, big white wine presence, and finish. Nice tartness from start to finish with notes of fruit throughout. Dry, biting finish. Lively mouthfeel. Overall this was extremely enjoyable and drinkable. Excellent sour in my book.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle. unfiltered honey amber body with a fine white head of average retention. impressively rich but nuanced nose of light acetic acid, mango and pineapple esters (with very soft edges, no harshness at all), light touches of cognac and oak and white wine and little noticeable alcohol. splashes of galangal and musty apple cider show up here and there. a playful layered nose throughout, all qualities well-integrated. lively, bright acid and a soft explosion of carbonation release ginger and sweet tropical fruit with a small touch of acetic acid and chardonnay, quite nice with the flavor and aroma profile but perhaps a bit harsh and coarse for me. tingly and peppery finish with a small touch of warming alcohol. surprisingly good beginning to end.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
À l’odeur, les abricots séchés et le funk sauvage. En bouche c’est bien effervescent, belle rondeur avec une acidité moyenne. La finale est très malté malgré le côté surette, caramel entre autre. Pas désagréable du tout.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Split with and courtesy of Tom. Pours honey mustard clear with a fat, off-white head and some spotty lacing. Aroma of horse radish, sharp cheese, funky basement, and some crazy Brett, hay, and old socks. Tastes very lemony with some dry, chardonnay wine notes and a bit of funky basement. Palate is dry and cutting with a bit of tartness on the tongue and in the finish. Decent sour, but not quite sour enough for my taste.
