Batch 1 - What a difference a year makes! I remember trying this a year ago and being unimpressed. I imagine part of that is my palate changing, but am sure that the wild yeast has gone to work and improved this beer quite a bit. Pours out a beautiful slightly hazy golden yellow with a pillowy, frothy white head. Nose is impressive, lots of brett, some lemon zest, a bit of pepper, floral yeast, and a bit of earth. Feel is excellent, light, crisp, dry, frothy. Taste follows the nose - complex, earthy, a touch of lemon, and a bit of malt.

Due to artificial lighting, arbitrary rating for Appearance Peaches, lactic acid, lemon, unripe stonefruit. Sour-fruity, peaches, lactic acid, wheat, Bretts in the good way. Quite carbonated, lipsmacking acidity, but mals . Finally an American sour that remains easily drinkable. Txs to M & L V!
