3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy golden with almost no head. Farmyard, orange, banana, pepper, bready aromas. Light body, low carbonation, smooth. Moderately sweet, medium sour, grapefruit bitter finish with some pepper and funk. Very complex and hard to describe.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Grabbed this a few months ago in Massachusetts. Cork opened up with a small pop but nothing severe. Enjoyed 2 ways in a Gueuze tumbler at 40F
A - No head at all, maybe a few bubbles. a hazy yellow gold appearance.
S - Very egg-forward, lots of peach, lemon and fresh cut apple with a great tannic cognac quality
T - This is incredibly sour. Lemon forward, the finish is like a rotten egg or moldy grapefruit. Very sour, wheat heavy, sharp acidic fruits and a rush of balsamic vinegar at the finish that lingers for a while
M - Thick, under-attenuated, very sour and almost no carbonation
O - This is a big disappointment. It could be an off bottle so I’ll grab one more (for science) but I’m not happy with it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at POUR. Nice sour-funk nose, Brett, lactic, oak. Leather and dust. Mild citric rind. Medium amber hazy with thin white head. Medium-light body with medium-light carbonation. Starts tart and lactic, with Brett and oaky notes. Fairly smooth with tart funky notes but not overly strong in sour character. Astringent salty-sour finish with mild lactic bitter after. Tart, refreshing but could use more carbonation.

750 c&c from Bine & Vine. Pours tarnished gold with no head. Aroma of sweat sox with something suggesting dessert. Med body. Flavor is oaky, mildly sweat sox with citrus. Very smooth. Has a certain bite. But it’s smooth oak and fruit with earth and horse blanket start to finish. Delicious.
