Light, cider-colored beer with almost no head. Slow bubbles; virtually transparent.

Champagne, cider, and funky aroma.

Flavor follows the nose: dry and sweet champagne/cider-like on the front, slightly tart, with a mildly cheese-tinged Brett funk on the back end. Just tart enough to make you pucker slightly.

Thin but syrupy/sugary feel; lingers and clings quite a bit, despite the relatively light feel.

This is a tasty and extremely light beer. While I don't like it as much as the fruit lambics (specifically the Kriek), it gives you a great, easy-going Brett experience. I'd definitely drink it again, although I'd prefer to lean toward the fruit lambics.

I always get excited to see actual beers in random places. In this case, I found this in a grocery store near the Jing'An Temple Metro stop in Shanghai China. Good find!

Poured from the 250mL bottle into a wine glass.

A: The beer is a clear malt vinegar brown with lots of carbonation showing through. The bead was off white to light tan and very fizzy, building only to about a finger and then dissolving soda-like into just a small patch on the top of the beer.

S: Hello my old funky friend. It's been a while since I've had a sour and the smell comes back to you instantly. Some sour fruits like unripe apples and berries along with a hint of wood and farm field. Lightly acidic, the twang hits like a teaspoon of vinegar but sweeter. Can't wait.

T: More fruits up front and a nice sour midpalate. This is much sweeter than I expected with a bit of sour sugar in the middle. A light bitterness and a drying sensation in the back. Swallowed quickly, you are left with a bit of wood and hay, but when held in there the sourness really takes over - like eating an unripe apple or pear, but in a good way. Grapes somewhere in there, like a white wine kind of note. Refreshing.

F: Has the feel of a good cider throughout, just prickly enough to give a refreshing seltzery spritz, but then dry in the back.

Overall, a pretty good find here. Doesn't have the strong sour characters of some of the Belgians that I've had, but then again that's ok - a subdued and refreshing find. Nothing but good things to say.
