3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cellared less than a year at the brewery.
Slightly hazy orange with a minimal white head.
The aroma has a rather "clean" funkiness (perhaps well-defined is a better word considering the circumstances) of barnyard and mud with some pleasant notes of fruits and lemony acidity. The funkiness gets more pronounced after a while.
The taste is tart and refreshing with a decent amount of funk. Pleasant notes of sour fruits and berries. Hints of oak and grass. The finish is mildly bitter and nicely dry with a faint hint of minerals. Very good.
Moderate body, medium levels of carbonation.
A good one. Very refreshing and fairly complex.
Serving type: bottle

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear golden with a touch of amber. Outstanding head volume and retention, world class lacing.
Nice sour nose with a bit of vinegar. Tart apples, barnyard funk and a grassy mustiness.
Light body with a lively carbonation from the middle on.
The outstanding flavor profile is very intense (sour), not very complex and quite lacking in balance. This style calls for sour and this beer delivers. It begins with a sour apple flavor that is a bit tart. The middle brings a shift towards vinegar that becomes quite noticeable in the back of the throat. The finish is sharp and dry with a lingering vinegar sourness coupled with a bit of musty funk.
