2012 edition that's been waiting to be let out. Lots of funk upfront; acidic, piercing. Funky, barnyard, TART - well rounded and really comes together as it warms a little. Good prickly carbonation dances around. As advertised, a great sour/wild that I would recommend to anyone interested in a representation of what the style should be.

poured 750ml into teku.

A - Delicate, clear, light ruby with a fizzy 2 finger head. Head vaporizes very quickly, which is normal for the style. No collar or lacing.

S- Sour blackberries, cherries, and green plum. Some stonefruit and oak with hints of wine. Funk is mild.

T - Plent of berry notes - cherry, raspberry, blackberry - and some green plum. Good amount of sour, oak and lightly funky. Don't get much red wine, but there are faint notes.

M - Perfect for a sour style as far as I am concerned. Highly carbonated, crisp, clean, refreshing, nicely sour.

O - While very good, I had to compare this to New Glarus Very Sour Blackberry. It held it's own and was tasty.
