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.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Brief head atop a clear yellow body. Nothing left after a bit.

Smell - Orange citrus. Intense acidity. Slightly acetic. Funky.

Taste - Really sour. Citrusy. Sharp funk cheesy flavor

Mouthfeel - Immensely sour. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - Not complex or interesting.

Served in a Duvel tulip glass.

I'm not entirely sure why, but I have a song from the movie "Domino" in my head... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear auburn-brass topped by a half-finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises sour-ass lemon zest backed by a strong contingent of straight-up funk. The taste brings in more of the same, the acidity buoyed by what seems like a slight addition of vinegar in the back. Damn, this be some funky, sour madness right here! The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry, stick finish. Overall, a very nice, heavily pucker-inducing sour. I think I was expecting a bit more in the way of Brett-y funk, but this was pretty enjoyable regardless.
