2011/12 Vintage bottle courtesy of Gription79. Thanks Dallas! I knew this beer was highly regarded, but the moment I popped the cork and took a whiff of the wafting funk coming out of this bottle, I knew I was in for a serious treat. Aromas of tart green apples, light peach skins, barnyard funk, musty basement, light bread, cloves, some light vanilla/oak. Very inviting!! Pours a bright yellow-gold, light bodied, sparkling carbonation...nice fluffy 2 finger white head that broke down gorgeously into some spotty lacing. Taste is very tart upfront. Almost puckering. But, I like that! We get more green apple, peach skins, big notes of lemon after it warms a bit, grass/hay/funk, some seriously delicious barrel notes on the back end too. Very woody. Has a very nice lacto tartness surrounding it. A very big beer for the style. Finishes very clean and dry. Outsanding beer! Can’t wait to drink it again!
