Bottled March 2012
Pours a hazy red/orange color with a huge fluffy and sticky white head on top. I can smell the tartness as soon as I wrangle the cork out of the bottle. Spicy tart aromas mixed with a bit of lactic and funk. Lemon pepper coated dark fruits eaten in the barnyard seems like a strange way to describe the aroma here. Sweet sugary malt flavor comes first, followed by some funk. Lemony yeastiness follows and lingers long after every sip. Medium to full body with a spirited level of carbonation and a bubbly sweet mouthfeel. I tried, but I could not enjoy this one. The phenolic form the yeast and the odd funkiness from the rye and whatever bugs were put into this really disagreed with my meager palette.
