Bottle from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours piss color with some white bubbles. Dry astringent aroma of golden apple skins. Near medium body with very mild carbonation. Flavor is dry, astringent apple - of a golden flavor. Arguably a bit oaky and somewhat sour. Most definitely dry. A very good drinker.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Hazy yellow. Definite brett in the aroma. The aroma burns the eyes just a tad. I’m not sure where the smoke is coming from, but there are all sorts of phenols here. There’s even a little cheese. I’m honestly having a little trouble finding an aroma or flavor not represented here.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Thanks to Blazer06 for the share. Pours undehydrated urine yellow with no head. No carbonation. Aroma is sour apple, granny smith, vinegar, funk, and yeast. Flavor is vinegar, band-aid, apple, smoke, lacto, with some earthy cowpile-esqueness. Unique. That is for sure.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
20091115 750ml bottle from Whole Foods in Middletown, NJ. Quite clear, pale yellow with slight induced fizz that fades quickly like a proseco. Aroma is mildly sulfurous, musty, and a touch acetic. Sprightly bodied stuff with brisk acidity and mild wet farmhouse funk. Sour and citrus filled cider with pleasant funk and some grassy and black peppercorn that I assume must come from yeasts? Fun stuff that is easily drinkable yet challenging as you might want to make it. Wish I had some salty and oily cheese and olives to pair this with, as that would probably work well.
