4.21/5 rDev -3.7%
A- hazy darker yellow body, two finger white head with good retention, effervescent and fluffy. Rings of lacing.
S- lemon, citrus, sweet Belgian candied sugar, mild funk
F- on the sweet side. Candied sugar sweetness, lemony acidity about 5/10, musty hay, dry funkiness, citrusy tartness separate from the acidity. Again, on the sweet side.
M- medium body, good carbonation, easy drinking wild that isn't too sour although it is quite a bit sweeter than I expected.
O- very similar to the other GI sours in that this is on the sweet side of the style but the acidity and tartness are more on spot here than in the others. Pretty good.

3.58/5 rDev -18.1%
750 mL bottle poured into snifter.
Appearance - Clear golden body. Small white head. Settles out quickly. Looks rather lifeless after a while.
Smell - Sourdough, citrus, oak. Vanilla. Bourbon barrel? I think that's bourbon. A bit of acidity there, too.
Taste - Sharper tang to it. Grainy wheat. Sourdough flavor again. Citrus. Lots of vanilla. Acetic sourness in the back. Earthy finish.
Mouthfeel - Heavy. Moderate sourness. Medium low carbonation.
Overall - Very interesting beer. Some aspects I don't like are a little intense.

Pour is golden copper with a tight white head. Nose has a good bit of barrel with nice hints of vanilla. Strong citrus bret with ripened orange and pineapple. Taste is less oaky, more citrus and bret with a light to moderate sourness. Body is light, assertive carbonation and moderately dry finish.
