4.83/5 rDev +6.6%
look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
Poured from a 375ml bottle dated 7/13 into a Prairie Teku glass at work, don't tell my boss. Bottle courtesy of the very generous BriceNice. Thanks, man.
Appearance: Cloudy and golden, no head to speak of, but a thin white crown around the edge.
Smell: Lots of funk, tartness. No orange to speak of here though. I love how this smells, really its exactly what I'm looking for in a sour.
Taste: Light, not overpowering vinegar tartness. A hint of bitterness, lots of wonderful funk. The mandarin isn't immediately noticeable, but comes through beautifully on the finish. I'm only getting a slight vinous character from the wine barrel.
Mouthfeel: Lots of carbonation, really prickly, which works very well with this style. It lingers quite a bit too.
Overall: So happy to finally try this beer, it's been on my wants list for a while. It doesn't disappoint. Hill Farmstead really knows what they're doing. Seek out this beer for sure.
