Damn this beer is still vivid in my mind, if I close my eyes I can taste the juicy nectarine funk, layers of unripe pineapple, mango, peach, soft toasted vanilla laced oak with dank funk from a musty king brett basement. Complex, juicy, chuggable and ever evolving deliciousness ! Amazing beer.

750ml bottle pours hazy pale orange with medium head. Nose is classic SARA with fruity funk, citrus, hay, grass. Taste is wonderful bright juicy stonefruit, nice funk, tons of tart apricot and tangerine, you’d swear this was fruited if tasting blind! Finishes dry with some balanced tartness, citrus acidity, lingering dusty oak, light creamy hay, fruity stonefruit funk. Awesome!

Big of a dulled pale golden, fairly cloudy rather than hazy with a decent thick bend with a one sided lacing. Nose is rich, white grape and lean lemon with a hoof of dusty sweetness. Initial taste is rich vibrant lemon burst, it’s fruit gum tart rich bite and evens out a nice crusty pepper. Carbonation is solid, mouthfeel is back to that vibrant good times. Incredible actually, this isn’t even chilld (#classicgarvie). Finishes bright, sook of tartness and lingers a dry wood lick and even after a swig of water that fruit gum, nibbling tartness tinsells on with that dryness.
Bottle, Cheers BenH good guy Mike bytemssisiisis, Decantillon Tasting

Pale yellow without relevant foam. The smell is fresh and spicy. The taste is delightfully sour, dryish with a little thinner fruit (tea) flavor. The aftertaste is dry and a little sour.
