750ml bottle poured in a Hill Farmstead taster. (bottle share)
A~ super hazy glowing yellow, not much of a head, and no lacing at all.
S~ tons of fermented honey, white grapes, vinegar and white wine. super strong acidity unlike any brew i've ever smelt.
T~ wow! this is crazy unique! pretty much follows the nose with more saison aspects. black pepper and bready yeast. all ending with a strong lemon vinegar tartness.
M~ not very carbonated but thats probably because the sample was saved for me. otherwise super smooth with the texture of dank lemonade. if this was freshly cracked i'm sure this would have had a nearly perfect score.
O~ definitely the most unique brew i've ever had the pleasure of experiencing! i'm hoping this is still being done again but i'm sure it won't be this same, this is just too crazy! hopefully its the same kind of wine barrel as well, the white wine/grape aspect is unreal! i seriously hope to have another chance to try this, 2 ounces was not enough!

Bottle at THE Sour and Saison Tasting, London. This beer was from me. After a very subtle gush, the beer pours lightly hazy yellow with a fine, white foam head. Restrained notes of funky brett in the nose, some delicate citrus, faint grass. Light to medium sweet flavor with a lovely tangerine character, along with mellow citrus rind. Light to medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Lightly bitter to finish with further notes of tangerine and citrus rind, light grass, some orange. Just superbly balanced from start to finish, with nuances that spring up every step of the way. The beer truly keeps on giving after every swallow. Many thanks to mom and dad (Laura and Procter) for getting me this bottle.
