UPDATED: SEP 1, 2019 4/2019 bottle date. Appearance: Clear light golden with a thick bubbled white head.
Aroma: Grass, hay, with a light brett horseblanket funk.
Taste: Really light cracker malt up front, with strong grassy, hay, and horseblanket notes before giving way to a moderately high sour tartness and relatively high bitterness against the light maltiness.
Mouthfeel: Light bodies with a high carbonation.
Finish: Super dry. Brett character funkiness with some tart lemon linger
Overall: Light, crisp, easy drinking sour farmhouse. Brett character dominates against the light malt base but isn’t overpowering. Tartness and bitterness provide a sharp but pleasant balance on the swallow and finish Lacho (158) - USA - JUL 28, 2019
