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.

A: Pours a tangerine orange body - almost fluorescent. A few big, fizzy bubbles, but no head whatsoever. A bit of cloud and murkiness to it.

S: Loads and loads of sweet tarts and funk upfront. Strong oak underlying the funk. Definitely some sweet citrus in there, but it's hard to smell anything over the yeasty funk - which isn't necessarily a bad thing, as I'm sure that is what they were going for.

T: Lip-puckering tart all the way through. Leaves a lingering sour like a warhead gives you on your tongue. There's a subtle hint of orange juice, and even lemonade hidden in there. Oak is present but not overbearing at all - could have faded with age, but it could use a bit more presence to balance the mega tart.

M: Light body. Heavy carbonation. Prickly.

O: Probably past it's optimal age, but a solid sour. With more oak character it would've been a really good brew, however the lack of balance left a bit of a vinegar taste in the finish. That being said, I know I'm being a bit over-critical, as it was still a very nicely done beer.
