4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Cloudy yellow-orange with a giant off-white head that showed excellent retention. Aroma is bright sour/funky citrus, earthy undertones. Lovely juicy entry, green grapes and lemon, maybe some honeydew? Followed quickly by tart funkiness that does not wipe out the palate, as well as soft oakiness. The balance here is outstanding! Not too sweet, not too bretty, not too oaky-- just so drinkable!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a tulip, 11/12 vintage.
3.5 A: First pour was a nearly clear light orange color. Every pour since then has been progressively more cloudy as is expected in a bottle conditioned brew. One and a half fingers of foamy white head that doesn’t last very long, but does leave a decent amount of lacing.
3.75 S: Tart and funky nose. A lot of dusty, old wood with dry-rotten sweat socks. An almost acetic tartness. Just hints of wildflower herbalness. Hay and a small nondeScript light fruitiness.
4.0 T: Taste is like the nose, but amplified five fold. Lots of dusty old woodiness, basement funk, and old crispy sweatsocks. Hay, light grassiness and herbal wildflower, hints of light fruits and honey. Acetic tartness. Very tasty.
3.75 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation with a pleasant spritziness to it. Super smooth.
4.0 D: Quite a tasty brew. I can’t identify any faults. Give it a try.
