750ml bottle into snifter on 7/6/09. Thanks to FooFaa for sharing.

A - Poured a cloudy, earthy peach-colored body with one-finger off-white head that reduced to a patchy film and deposited moderate spotty lacing around the glass.

S - Sour, tart fruity notes akin to green apple and white grapes with plenty of oaky tannins, producing a band-aid character. Some citric notes also emerged as the liquid warmed up.

T - Initial flavor is quite sour and tart with wild yeasty notes suggesting green apple and cider. Oaky and woody notes trump the hop character, giving way to an astringent character and very little bitterness. Finishes with a grainy, caramely malt character with a good bit of barnyard funk suggesting fresh hay.

M - Light to medium bodied with a light syrupy texture and fairly soft carbonation for the style. Mouthfeel is a tad watery overall. Finish is dry, tart and astringent, but also somewhat sweet on the palate.

D - A very solid effort from Bullfrog overall. Liquid Sunshine Reserva is indeed quite gueuze-like, with plenty of astringency, sour notes and funk. FYI - I was lucky enough to try a strawberry version of this directly from the tanks, and let me tell you... it was amazing! Look for this version sometime next year.
