Back of the bottle reads 14/03/2034.
This was poured into a stange.
The appearance was a hazy yellow color with a two finger white sustaining foamy head. Stringy lacing slides down the glass nicely.
The smell had a sharp citrus slightly bitter, slightly sweet, decent amount of sour and a super light underscore of earthiness.
The taste was mainly sour but a good sour with the tart there as well. Earthy and somewhat woody sweetness runs into the aftertaste and leaves a quick finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a great sessionability about it. This would be great on a hot Summer’s day as there’s a nice refreshing quality about it, not as dry as I thought it would be.
Overall, I say this was a wonderful beer as I would definitely have again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly hazy pale amber to golden body. The white head is long-lived and never gets smaller than a thin layer. Crisp, dry, slightly funky and strong aroma of sparkling (white) wine, tart fruits, apples and hints of oak and fermented fruits in the back. Quite strong flavour of sparkling wine and acidic and tart fruits, with wood, fermented apples, citrus and faint barnyard in the back. Light, very dry and lively carbonated. Very nice.
