Shared with Rudzud as usual.
Big creamy fizzy 1 finger head fades semi quickly but keeps getting fed by streaming bubbles, some lacing, weird looking murky grayish brownish orange red colored thing. Color is ugly but the streaming bubbles are nice.
Nose starts with tart fruit and plenty of it, some wild funk like Brett, light sweet candy gummy like some fruit maybe peach like, light bready malt thing from the funk, faint spiciness from the rye, faint dusty wood barrel and touch vanilla, a juicy fleshy strawberry banana fruit like, little sweet reddish malt and candy.
Taste starts quite sour, very sour, long tart fruit and straight lambic like sour, nice tart fruit with hints if strawberry and stone fruit, a tannic strawberry seed maybe stem, and faint light peach like fruit, juicy. Then funk, just a bit of Brett funk and bready malt. Some light sweet candy reddish malts, very light spicy fruity rye. Plenty acidic with tart acetic acid, most likely Brett lambicus, and faint touch of dusty wood barrel. Finish is drier but very sticky flemmy and sour, more tart fruit, little lambic like, acidic bite, touch bready yeast, more peach and strawberry like sour fruit, some vanilla coming through quite late.
Mouth is med to lighter bod, quite sour and tart, decent fluffy carb.
Overall very nice, very little rye, but great lambic like sour fruit and tartness, good funk overall, juicy fruit, light barrel notes, very tasty.

A natural orange juice color meets the eye with a tinge of peach. The head was foamy and tight.
The nose is tart, sour and a bit acidic with cherry and lemon juice like aromas.
Tempered sour fruit first meets the palate with citrus acidity. Oranges, lemons and a grapefruit juice flavor hold through as it finishes with oak, cream and cider.
The feel is not too tart, no pucker factor at all, with smooth thickness and drinkability.
The barrel must really even this sour out, as its not too tart, but the flavors were easily preserved.
