Bottle. Hazy golden, off-white head. Barnyard, lemon and earthy garden notes in aroma. Sour fruityness too. Lemony notes mixed with vinegar in taste, funkyness as well. Dry and tart finish. Refreshing brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Special kind of sour, oak-aged ’table beer’ with thin, off-white head and hazy golden blonde colour; aroma of apple, pepper, tannins, mango, pear, sour yoghurt, meat, sweat. Complex taste, surprisingly full body for a beer of this low ABV, a bit creamy even, estery with citrus peel freshness, dry sourness and long, dry, tart and somewhat woody finish. Nice, like its fruit variants.

A: Gold color, thin ring of head.
N: Grapefruit, lemon zest, grain, cherry, and some acetone.
T: Semi-sweet, very tart.
M: Light body, spritzy carbonation.
O: Nice beer. It’s pretty large for only being 3% - I’m kind of surprised it’s not listed as Berliner.

Draft at Edmunds Oast. Cloudy golden pour with a bubbly white head. Nose is super funky, lactic acid and fruit all over the place, peaches apricots, kumquats and tangerines. Flavor is just as loaded as the nose and a insanely light body. Best summer crusher.
