Bottled poured into a Bruery tulip. Bottled 03/2014.

Ap: Pours a thin cap of fizzy white head which quickly faded to a thin ring. Goregous hazy light orange body with thin lacing. Brings to mind some kind of cocktail. 4.0

Ar: Fresh pluots up front, a bit of dry musty yeast, and a light lactic sourness blending very well with notes of fruit juice (pluots, papaya, grapes) and tart wine barrels. Refreshing and tart. 4.25

T: Starts off with a huge wave of lactic sourness before with a little bit of decaying farmhouse type yeast to cut it. Some fruit tartness and a washed stone/mineral note in the middle, but it's mostly a big wave of fruity sourness before ending on cracker malt backbone and wine barrel. 4.0

Mf: Prickly, light mouthfeel with a huge pucker. Chalky finish. Sip slowly. 3.75

Overall: A light, refreshing fruit sour with a big bite. Almost brings to mind a mini gueuze with its unique mineral note and lactic bite. A fruit punch gueuze, if you will. With that said this was well worth the price and recommended. I regret not buying more than one.
