I admire and respect this beer for it’s lambic-esque aroma, rich fruitiness, and daring carbonation. I wonder why the fuck I am still drinking it when it hits my esophagus with a rush of acetic acid so painful that I could gag. It’s good, but it is sour as a mofo.

Bottle shared during the Track Set interval of the Brokeback Revisited tasting in London. Cheers Kenny! Another murky pour with a sticky beige head. Nose is sherbert, acidic and balsamic forward, loads of hay/barnyard notes, tangy mandarin, grapefruit and raspberries. Quite tarty. Taste is acidic and full of tarty berries, light zesty twang, peachy stone fruit notes, tangy and zesty on the finish with a big dose of funk. Very tarty stuff. I like it
