4.5/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Picked up a 32oz. growler at the grand opening of their brewpub.
$10 for the beer and $5 for the glass.
Pours a slightly hazy yellow color with a full finger of bright white head after a rigorous pour.
Aroma is slightly fruity, lots of brett, some decent funk. Extremely inviting.
Taste is even better with just a hint of sweetness to round out this wild ale. Perfect balance of brett, sour, tartness, and super juicy.
Finishes super clean.
Mouthfeel is crisp and the carbonation is spot on for the style.
I could drink this beer every day and never grow tired of it. It really is that good.

Serving type: growler

Served on tap at the publick house in Brookline MA
Sered in a mystic pt glass

A: served with a fluffy white 2 finger head that dissapates nicley.... Body is a hazy light yellow straw color. Looks very refreshing and very light, not much lacing.

S: musty funk with notes of Brett, nose almost remiss me of a berlinerweiss, a light perfume floral smell as well. Which I'm guessing has something to do with the name. Lemon citrus notes are also present... As the beer warms a touch it seems that the must and earthyness are coming from the light oak notes present.

T: lemony delicious, with a slight tartness, funky barrel notes blend in beatifuly, this is a very well balanced brew with everything complimenting everything else very nicley. A bit of floralness on there as well. Again i am slughtly reminded of berlinerweiss. Very tasty!

M: light bodies an very drinkable! A great beer for an almost 100 degree day here in Boston. Medium/high carbonation maintains a fuzzy/creamy mouthfeel.

O: I really enjoyed this beer, it's a great release from mystic and it deffinatly excites me for future sour beer releases of theirs in the future... Really glad I had the opportunity to try this.

Serving type: on-tap
