Big thanks to that jerk MrChopin for bringing this to the tasting! Mostly clear golden pour, small fizzy head. Really great apricot, earthy cheesecloth, woody zippiness, drying citrus to counteract, in part, the higher alcohol. Booze well hidden. I’m down with it.

SirADNielsen (8963) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2014
Bottle @ What the Funk Denver 2014. Pours a golden orange appearance with a thin cream colored head. Pretty strong aroma. Definitely some cheese and funk in the nose. Plenty of earth as well. Flavor was a bit strong. Some citrus and a lot of barnyard funk. Light cheese / parmesan. Again, kind of strong but kind of fun to drink.
