4.26/5 rDev -0.9%
Light brown to dull copper penny in color with moderate clarity. A minuscule layer of thin white head partially covers the top of the beer. Aroma is a complicated mixture of tart Brett and earthy citrus like hops. The taste is initially very tart and yet quickly the citrus like hops follow and help keep the tartness in check. The fade is an interesting tango of the ultra sour Brett notes and more fresh citrus hops. The mouth is dry and earthy. This a very refreshing roller coaster ride for your palate. Not for the meek tongued!

A: Pours a cloudy orange with a good sized and frothy light tan head. Head fizzes out somewhat quickly but with an almost completely solid wall of lacing. Decent retention.
S: Interesting. Sour citrus, orange peel and grapefruit? Hoppy, fruity and tart at the same. Very nice and crisp and refreshing.
T: Huh, hoppy grapefruit up front. Tart citrus follows, mostly a combination of grapefruit and oranges. Quite sour and a kick from the bitterness at the same time in the finish. Lingering bitter oranges and grapefruits.
M: Medium bodied, sharp and crisp.
O: Interesting sour, never had a hopped sour before. The hoppiness enhances the fruitiness and gives it an edge that's really nice. Overall a very crisp and drinkable sour.

22oz bottle into snifter. 2013 vintage.
A: Pours a lightly cloudy apricot color with a couple of fingers of fuzzy light tan head that faded rather quickly into thin soft looking film.
S: Sweet and fruity notes of bright peaches, apricots and tangerine nectar. Floral and lightly bitter smelling as well. There are some underlying notes of dry yeast, slight funk, and a hint of tartness that reminds me this isn’t just a flowery ipa.
T: Musty, tart, and dry up front, with bright notes of stone fruits and citrus. Peach, apricot, and kumquats follow, with earthy and dirty flavors of barn floor flavored yeast, musty attic and spicy hops. The finish is has a kiss of tart acid and mango, and the aftertaste is juicy, dry and sweet with a lingering fruitiness.
M: Bright and frothy carbonation that bubbly up on my mouth, but it isn’t suffocating or harsh. Soft and drying mouthfeel, medium body with touch of grease to it. More funky than tart, and very easy to drink all-around. Very low acidity/vinegar.
O: I knew this beer was supposed to be really good, but I haven’t really ever been blow away by a NB LoF beer since La Folie. This beer was fantastic. The tart musty base worked very well with the tropical fruit hop addition. Amazing.
