Got this in a trade. I shouldn't have. 750ml bottle into a Lost Abbey teku. Shared with schen9303.

Pours some light bubbles. Beer is an attractive goldenrod. No lace and thin legs. No good. Looks near flat except for some bubbles around the side of the glass.

Nose is pungent vinegar and lemon. Very acidic and pretty aromatic. Average.

Opens vinegar tartness. Some lemon acidity and more vinegar at the end. There's a very faint tropical pineapple going on somewhere but its mostly covered by the vinegar. Acidic finish with a sour aftertaste. Very one dimensional and that dimension's not too great.

Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Oily and slick and rather dull in the mouth. Filmy and dry going down. Aggressive finish with a lingering aftertaste. Pretty average again.

This isn't very good. I wouldn't have it again. Very one dimensional and instead of tasting funky and full of character, this just seems like a project gone wrong that they decided to bottle anyway. Overwhelming vinegar isn't what I'm looking for from my Wild Ales.

Hazy golden colour with no head. Okay.

Moderately funky with tons of earthy character and then some goat. Interesting sweetness and fermented stone fruit notes.

Massively tart. Epic sourness. Interesting kumquat and citrus. Really like this.

Thin and fizzy. Nice. Pops on the palate.

Really nice beer. Massive awesome sourness. Great beer.
