Bottle: Poured a hazy bright yellow color ale with a medium size head with light retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of tart notes with light barnyard notes is refreshing. Taste is also dominated by tart notes with light oak notes and some barnyard notes that are not overly dominant. Some acidic notes are also discernable but not too the extent where they overwhelmed some of the other flavours. Body is about average with medium to low carbonation. Not the most complex sour beer but very well balanced with acidic notes not taking over all the flavours.
