Corked & caged, decent pop on opening, decanted into Firestone Teku.

First glass was bright, lightly hazy sunshine yellow with some dense one finger foam. Second pour is hazier as the yeast and sediment are roused via the effervescent carbonation.

Aroma is very bright citrus, chardonnay, touches of wood, pops of melon. Very inviting aromatics.

Flavor profile is where this beer just wins and continues to shine. Lots of tart funky grapefruit and lemon. Layers of sweet melon on the mid palate, with a fantastic dry refreshing finish. Brett and bugs interplay to provide a really great depth of flavor.

Overall, this is one to get and one to get a few extra of to hang onto in the cellar and savor for as long as you reasonably can.

Was expecting citrus, but not a sour. I would categorize this in the sour style. I am not a fan of sours and so I don't like this one.
