Definately a little different than previous batches, but still delicious
A- Pours a golden straw color with a quickly fading fluffy white head.
S- Tart, complex, and herbal, much like a gueze. Herbal, hay-like funk with grassy notes and hints of white pepper.
T- Suprisingly different from the aroma. The grapes actually come through in the flavor. Crisp vinous white grapes are in the foreground, while horseblanket, hay, tart apple, funk, white pepper, and a mild grassy flavor are in the background.
M- Crisp and dry (again not unlike a good gueze)
D- Not overwhemingly sour, but a definate sipper.

Huge thanks out to Emma for sharing this a little while back. Forgot to enter my notes from the notebook.
Batch 4, shared with good friends.
A- Small snifter pour from the 500ml bottle. Hazy golden bodied with just a small ring of white foam that leaves some nice legs. No true lace as it looks like wine after some time.
S- Super pungent funky lactic bouquet. Lemons and white sour grapes are massive, some cheesy Brett funk and barnyard is strong.
T- Mellows out a bit in a way with some balanced yeasty apple and pear flavors, lactic acid flavor is dominant with lemons and green apple, intense tart fruits. Funky vinous oak seems to round it out but candy sour goodness and some coriander spice.
MF- Dry as all hell with a lighter end Gueuze consistency and body. Silky foamy carbonation at a high end level accentuates the sour tartness that lingers on the palate.
Wow, one of the sourest beers I can think of with some good good funk and nice barnyard. Apple skin, sour grape fruity feel goes a long way with the bugs present.
