Bottle thanks to islandboi8204, served in a Hill Farmstead stem.
Pour: Hazy yellow orange, with a half finger of white head that recedes to a rim. No lacing. Body has a nice glow to it.
Smell: Big tart lemons and funk up front. Lots of oak as well. Some pear skins and green apples. A strong lactic character is even sour on the nose.
Taste: Big sour lemons up front, followed by a deep clean funk. Lots of tart pears and more lemon. A hefty amount of oak dries everything out continually. Some light bready sweetness, but only just. Finishes with funk and oak.
Mouthfeel: Very sour, but never puckering or cloying. Very, very dry, which I enjoy immensely.
Overall: This beer exceeded my high expectations. It is clear why it has the acclaim it carries. I hope to have it again.

This beer is amazing. The appearance was golden and brite, slight orange, crisp with very little head only brief lacing that didnt linger at all. Carb bubbles were present throughout.
The smell was sweet & sour with a good funk, slight notes of tart apple and pear. I thought after smelling that this was going to disappoint honestly.
The taste though, wow. Tart apple, granny smith, bright farmyard funk, the taste lingered as well and was slight bile lemon and finished with sweet spice notes and some orange grapefruity effervescence. This taste for me was perfection. Even as I cherished the last couple sips that had warmed it was even more complex with some malt, bread, salt and dank balanced funk. So good, better on the cold side but I cherished it all through the pour...
The mouth was crisp and dry, the tart wets the cheeks afterwards and it lingered in a good way
I really was close to a 5 on this beer, its definitely in my top 5 and left me craving desperately for another
