375mL bottle into a Teku
2014 vintage

Thanks to KevSal for sending this over in a trade.

A: Pours a translucent light golden color, with less than 1 fingers width of bright white head. Head dissipates down almost immediately and leaves zero lacing. 4

S: Very tart, lots of lactic acidity, some funky burnt plastic like notes, sweet fruity aromas. Excellent. 4.5

T: A nice puckering tartness, lactic acidity, sweet fruit flavors to balance things out, lots of Pluot flavors (just kidding I have no clue what Pluots taste like as Ive never had them in my life). Great mix of sour and sweet. Delicious. 4.5

M/D: Lighter side of medium bodied, carbonation appropriately high,a touch syrupy, the sour tartness gives it a nice bite, drinkability is very good. 4.25

O: Awesome beer. I will be seeking out more from this series. 4.5

Served from a 375ml bottle into a Smutty tulip.

Pours a apricot color with quick half finger head. Smell is peach, apricot, vanilla, lemon, oak. Taste is sour grapes, apples, peaches, and plenty of oak. Feel is heavily carved and crisp with a firm sourness.

Overall this is a nice fruit forward sour, but I don't know if I get plots.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy pale yellow. Medium white head.

Smell - Light yeasty tartness. Stone fruits.

Taste - Tart and lemony up front. Stone fruit builds up. Tartness builds equally. Some wine-like flavors in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium light body. Well carbonated.

Overall - My palate is shot, but this is pretty good. I'm not getting any complexity out of it, though.
