Bottle thanks to brewbetter, poured into a Hill Farmstead stem.
Pour: Completely hazy yellow orange with two fingers of off white, thick head. Head recedes, and leaves medium lacing. Body is really nice a radiant. Great looking beer.
Smell: Big apricots and lactic sourness up front. A nice funk I was not expecting, as well as some lemon pith and pear skins. A light white vinegar, but most of the sour is characterized by the lacticity.
Taste: Follows the nose with big apricot skin and must, as well as sharp lactic sourness. Sourness isn’t overpowering, but quite nice. A light bready sweetnes comes in. Finishes sour with pear skins.
Mouthfeel: Really quite sour. A nice puckering aspect. Funk is clean. Great carb.
Overall: Wonderful beer. Like Fou Foune sans the classic Cantillon funk. I loved this and will be seeking it out again. Thanks Neel!
