Bottle poured into a tulip glass. A cloudy lemon drop yellow with around three inches of foamy white head. Aroma is an interesting combination of sun-ripe pineapple, tropical flavored gummy candy, lemon rind, sourdough bread, horse blanket, and something between vinegar and cat urine (Brettanomyces can do some funky stuff). Palate is similarly tart and funky, although I am finding the brett to be rather tasteful, flavorsome yet not overpowering although this element does build over the course of 11.2 oz. Awesome juxtaposition of grapefruit, tangerine, and lemon hops and the aforementioned barnyard funk, fizzy and effervescent with a hint of butter in the otherwise dry and bitter finish. A little pine sap emerges as well. I'd describe this as a technically proficient, mid-range sour with decent hop character. If I had to critique, I'd say this one is somehow a bir rough around the edges, in a way that is difficult to describe. Still worth the price point.

Pours a pale gold, cloudy. Large bubbles; head is white, thin, sticky lace. Small bead. Looks a bit flat but nice.

Smells funky but pleasant. Fresh, slight tang. Citrus, pineapple, green apple. Very enticing.

Taste is funky, pleasant upfront. Decent barnyard notes, then finish is wheaty and slightly phenolic, but presaged by nice hoppy character. Fresh citric bitterness. Nice blend of funk with fresh fruity notes. Excellent palate.

Smooth enough, bit of bite on the back. Enjoyable.

Great blend of really disparate brewing styles synthesised into a pleasant, interesting drop.

A - Light haze on a light gold and wheat body. Rustic, foamy white head has nice retention and great lace.

S - Surprisingly deep. Earthy barn yard funk, sage, black pepper, lemon zest, hay, and fresh wheat.

T - Smooth bready wheat opening, funky hay center, dried grass and lemon zest finish. The bitterness is slightly waxy on the backend.

M - Medium body with par carbonation.

O - Interesting concept. The funk, waxy bitter, and lemon highlights are refreshing, but not necessarily sessionable.
