Glowing orange reminiscent of Veritas 007 - beautiful. Light lacing and fizzing head. Outstanding looking beer.

Floral notes, lemon, sour apple, dried apricot, not so ripe grape..

Will vanquish any sour craving, sour apple, lemon/lime tart, refined oaky background.

Light and fizzy mouthfeel - extremely drinkable, although there is an acidity to this that can be overbearing.

I'd like to age this and drink all my bottles now. I wish this was more available - quite delicious.

Attended the 4th pick up for the 2013 DDG release.

This wonderful elixir was served in a plastic cup. I did share a bit with my GF who I've been introducing to sours over the last couple years. Kind wished for a DDG glass taster, but hell I was happy just to get a taste without cracking a bottle.

A: Very clear light golden color. You can tell something interesting is hiding behind that veil of beauty.
S: Tart with fruity esters only inviting your senses to get closers.
T: The initial taste is of mild fruit with a very drinkable sourness, that makes you want to go for the next drink.
M: Very smooth, with some wetness.
O: I love this beer, but I'm hesitant on opening a bottle now. When I do I'll be revisiting this review.

I wanted to do a batch 1 vs batch 2 review but ain't nobody got time for that.

A: Deep orange and radiant hay/illuminated foxtails at the edges of the glass, bubbly frothy eggshell carb, nice lacing dropping doily webbing like Peter Parker down the edges. This is what was inside of Marcellus Wallace's briefcase.

S: Incredible fruit esters, apricot, lactic acidity, tangelo, nectarines, tangerines, a subtle sweetness and a light musk on the backend like wet hay.

T: This just rips up the mouth carpet like a day laborer and lays acidic laminate like a licensed ph3 contractor. There is shocktarts, sweet tarts, lemon zest, grapefruit dryness, and a musky leather aspect on the backend that keeps the acidity in check. Absolutely phenomenal.

M: This is incredibly drying and just drills your gumline like a Peter North video. Incredibly acidic and rolls back those bicuspics and leaves your mandible aching in the best possible way. She is raw with your mouth but you wouldn't have it any other way, you already are waiting for her to return in 3 years for another tryst in the hay. Cankersores await in the morning but it is the sweet succor of a casual duck sesh.

D: this is exceptionally drinkable despite the incredible acidity and if you can't handle it, work your jaws up with some Petrus and take your complaints elsewhere. The price and availability of this is a complete testicle and wallet defacement that makes me longing for more. Some will take calm refuge and say that 3F Oude Gueuze is better, denial is a hella of a panacea. This is an almost perfect AWA in every way, it is not a gueuze, but it goes beyond even traditional Goozies in sheer excess and panache like an acidic ZR1 that pushes you down in your seat with sheet acidic stiff arming. Fucking phenomenal, every bit as good as B1 that will continue to improve despite the 1.0001 FG. Mark my words.
