Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a murky light yellow-orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, grain, funk, acidic, citrus zest, and slight rose petal aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour grain, funk, and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

From a 375 ml bottle into a tulip.

A-The beer is very light golden in color and quite murky. The head is about one and one-half fingers of white foam to start, but it fades immediately and leaves no lacing on the glass. Not much carbonation is visible, although my bottle foamed lightly on opening.

S-The aroma is a fruity, tart, funky mixture of tangerine, mandarin orange, brett, light tropical sweetness, and floral notes. The funk is moderate and musty instead of outright odd or barnyardy, and the sour factor is pretty light.

T-The taste tracks the smell. Tart, sweet citrus flavors are most noticeable, along with some musty, earthy, bretty funk that dries out the palate on the finish. The tropical floral notes from the rose hips stay mostly in the background, but provide a nice addition. The beer is tart, rather than sour.

M-The feel is on the lighter side with quick burst of fine carbonation.

O-This beer is nearly as good as Red Swingline, in my opinion. The aroma and flavors are pretty complex and drinkable, and the low ABV is always a plus. There is enough acidity here to pair with food, even stronger cheeses. If this stuff weren't so expensive, I would drink it by the gallon.
