Another one thanks to Ricky for sharing his bottle so I could cellar mine. 3-way split with rudzud.

Very light fizzy head, hazy golden pale yellow.

Nose is awesome, great stone fruit like, peach apricot, little citrus mild mandarin orange like, light Brett funk, juicy fruit, little tangy, hint pineapple like.

Taste its quite sour, little lemony, sour malt like, nice mild funk, little Brett like and bready, mild mild orange flavor, very floral fragrant and little acidic kick. Juicy with little citrusy kick as it goes. Finish is a bit sticky and syrupy, lingering lemon and mild orange citrus like with light Brett funk, little acidic too.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, decent carb and mild acidic bite.

Overall quite nice but not quite different from original flora.

Poured into the HF tulip. Pours a bright gold/yellow, slightly hazy. No head and no other bubbles either. A small amount of lacing on the side, though. The aroma is very nice. Citrus, lemon sticks out. A nice amount of sour funk in there. Nice amount of tart lemon and orange peel right up front. Also, very sour for the aftertaste, like biting into a sour citrus rind. Some nice flavor from the wine barrels make themselves known. A slight amount of carbonation. I'm a week removed from having flora with blueberries. I can see the similarities, but can also realize blueberries make this a better beer. This is also older, so probably not as juicy as it once was. The satsuma adds a nice mellow touch of citrus and then rounds it out on the end with a sour bite. Very nicely balanced, although i would like to taste some more of the oranges. I know, should have traded for it months ago, maybe fresh the orange flavor is more prominent. Maybe I'll go check out some past reviews while I finish the bottle. Still, a very nice beer. Super happy with the trade even if it is a notch below blueberry flora for me.
