On tap at Proletariant in NYC; pours hazy gold color with a small off white head that left minimal spotty lacing.

Smells of barnyard funk, light caramel, yeast, green apples, grapes, pears and a whole fruit basket, mixed with malt or grains that come off both sour and sweet. Basic yet very complex at the same time.

Tastes very acidic and like a mimosa, with a lot of citrus like orange juice, lime juice, fresh squeezed lemon, red grapefruit and then some tart green apple, pear and white wine and/or champagne. The funk, Brett and barnyard earthy notes are the second act and work extremely well with the strong citrus and fruit in general. Very different and really damn refreshing tasting, it's like drinking a glass of outside air with a fruit mixer.

Mouthfeel is light, crisp and almost watery, with a light feel, zesty champagne like carbonation and a mild funky taste that kicks in before the sour and tart finish which is on the clean side. Extremely easy to drink, this was a great light farmhouse ale that was perfect in its simplicity as it was just complex enough to be different with every sip. Highly recommended.

Most recent batch. I think this one is the best batch yet. Dry but crisp, slightly tart and exploding with lime and hibiscus.
