look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

A: It has a golden orange body that is very clear after leaving the bottle in my refrigerator for 3 months and then leaving the last 1 oz in the bottle. The half finger head is an orange tinged ivory that hangs around for a while.

S: The perfect balance between funk, tart, fruit, and malt. The funk from the brett comes up first. It has that barnhouse aroma that Brett is known for. The sour is mixed in nicely with the fruit. There is a sour orange flora aroma that is very pleasant. The malt lingers subtly in the back of this beer with caramel notes. The only problem I have with it is that it is very subtle.

T: The taste mirrors the aroma perfectly. The tart and sweetness come forward in this beer more in the flavor then in the aroma. Great balance between the sour, fruit, and funk. One of the best sours out there.

M: Very rich full and creamy mouth feel. The carbonation is perfect. In terms of sours, this is the best.

O: I am a little upset that this is only a one time brew. This is the top five sours that I have ever had. Very delicious and well worth trading for.
