A massive thanks to Dan (Dslim71) for hooking me up with a couple of these beers and allowing me to tick a longtime want. Cheers and Merry Christmas! (also thanks to Cuzco!) Batch 5, 375ml bottle, split with my brother-in-law.

Appearance – Pours a lovely hazy golden color into my trusty generic tulip. About a half finger of slight off white head is achieved with a moderate pour, which dissipates quickly leaving zero lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell – Just a plethora of barnyard funk and other tart aromas emerge from the glass as I swirl the beer around. Heavy must, wet hay, slight leather, tart citrus (i.e. lemon zest), and earthy qualities.

Taste – An immediate mouth puckering from the lemon zest which fades into fantastic barnyard funk qualities. To be honest, my brother-in-law and I both stated it has a slight gueuze like feature. The acidity from the lemon (and also green apple) is pleasant and I personally hope this gets a bit more tart with some age. When you take a sip the back sides of your jaw tense up from the tartness which I personally loved, haha. The mix of the tart citrus and funk is utterly delicious. I am savoring this beer as much as I can.

Mouthfeel – Medium bodied, appropriate carbonation, finishes a hint dry.

Overall – A wonderful experience from a beer. A perfect time to open it up on Christmas. I am thoroughly enjoying this drink and am sad to see my half disappearing faster than I was hoping. Very happy I have a couple more to cellar to see how this beer ages.
