3.3/5  rDev -20.3%
look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a tasting glass.

A: Slighly hazy, medium golden color with no foam head. No lacing remains on the glass.

S: Bright lemon and musty funk are featured, with other qualities such as gruyere and green apples faint but detectable. Other fruit and spice are absent, preserving an authentic cleanliness.

T: Begins dry, with potent tartness, bright fermented grain, and sharp minerality. Yeast funk becomes pronounced into the middle, suggestive of digestive fluid when considered with the sourness. Flavors drop off abruptly into the finish, tasting stale and just a little sweaty.

M: Medium viscosity, syrupy on the palate, with low carbonation.

D/O: This wild ale features some authentic lambic qualities, mostly centered around the smell. The flavor profile starts out in agreeable fashion, but flails ineffectively by the midpoint. It seems a little young, and time to condition fully may alleviate the textural issues.

3.29/5  rDev -20.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Pour is transparent golden amber with a small amount of tight white head. Nose has a good bit of hay, light wheat notes, hints of lemon, lacto, notes of vinegar, and some off plastic notes. Taste has a bit more vinegar and a decent bit of lemon, faint wheat notes, fair amount of lactic acid, not the burn I was expecting from them. Moderate carbonation, lighter body, lingering musk.

Poured from a bottle into a beer goblet.

Pours a beautiful golden color with a minimal head and minimal lacing. Smells of sour deliciousness!! The sour bouquet is phemononel!! Flavor is legit...very tart, as the lacto is very prevelant. I would definitely recommend this for any sour fan!

Cheers!
