Second 750ml consumed in the last 3 months. Same batch. Full notes taken during consumption last night.

A- Cider-like pour to a tulip with a hazy deep golden body. A foamy white head to just about one finger. After decent retention a fluffy ring deposits just a few patches of lacing.

S- Funky bugs and fruity hops coming in just beneath that. Slight barnyard straw, cherry and lactic lemon tartness countered by tangerine, apricot, orange and passion fruit. Wheaty rustic Weiss hint. More juicy here.

T- Wild aspects of the beer take the precedence but not by a ton, funky musty fruits. Lactic acid is the driving force of it all adding a moderate sourness that brings together notes of passion fruit, tangerine, clementine juice, lemon juice, apple, wheat bread crust, cheese and citrus zest in general. Less juicy and more tart pith flavors.

MF- Fairly light bodied with crisp high end carbonation. Not the most texture but a slightly frothy and puffy foamy overall. Finishes with a light to medium sourness.

The IPA part of the brew is lost a bit in the taste but you still appreciate stone fruits and citrus. With the lactic funk and sourness these hop notes fit in very nicely and I can't help but think of a citrus yogurt.
