3.85/5 rDev +1.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a corked and caged bottle into a Victory tulip
A- pours a cloudy shade of light orange with a two finger white head that fades extremely quickly. Not too great looking overall
S- lemon and funk. Oh yes. Tons of funk. Lovely
T- it tastes very...fresh, I guess. Not a ton of funk. Decent lemon. Very mild flavor overall
M- medium bodied, TONS of carb. Wow
O- this is approachable. Doesn't hold a candle to the RR sours we all know and love, but it's still solid overall

3.8/5 rDev 0%

A: Clear copper, some loose bubbles and streams rise quickly. Murkier as I approach the end of the bottle. Champaigne-quality head with better retention. Artwork hints towards a retro-70's coloring and font, a little bland, but concise and clear.
S: Wildflower, honey, tart fruit, a bit of spice. Maybe a little of the classic 'malt and yeast' smell.
T: Tartness is all up front, and a little mild; afterwards I get herbacious notes, some yeast, and rounded off with malt. Dry. Yeasty finish. I would prefer more of the tart-sour character to come through, and would expect it seeing from the refermentation with brett. Maybe it needs more aging?
M: Light, dry, prickly. Perfect combinations for a refreshing effect.
O: Pretty darn good, consider my S & T scores to be 3.87- falling just short of getting rounded up to 4. A good mix of flavors and smells, but they somewhat trip over and end up hindering each other. A beer I will always enjoy, despite some minor shortcomings.
