2006 bottle (same as Cam below - thanks for sharing Cam!)

Pours a very hazy light orange color with a whitish head. The nose is really funky - get that diaper flavor. It smells really good.
The taste is dry, funky and earthy and way more so than it is sour. Light on the palette and goes down quite easy. Not all that tart or vinegary. Really tame for a guezue. Overall, I thought this was a very accessible idea of a guezue and I enjoyed it very much.
