750 ml bottle, 2013 Edition, looks like the bottling date is 09/10/13. Served in a Prairie Teku, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with an inch off-white head. Head retention is decent, and there's a small amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like apricots, funk, vinegar, green apples, hay and some lemon peel. The taste is nice too, with apricot, funk, green apple, bready/grainy malt, hay, vinegar, lemon peel, and earthy flavors all noticeable. It's nice and tart! Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's refreshing and has a good amount of carbonation. I liked this brew, certainly wouldn't mind buying more of this in the future.

750 ml bottle dated 7/16/14
White wine and funk aromas, tartness, slight vinegar.
Aggressive pour one finger head dissipates at the speed of light.
Taste is mouth puckering, but not as acetic as the aroma indicates. The sourness lingers pleasantly.
Overall, very nice blond sour, should I say gueuze, sessionable at 6% ABV.
