Thanks to eyebereej for sending this one! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 375 mL bottle into a Cigar City snifter.
A: Pours a beautiful gold, nearly clear, with tons of visible carbonation and a half-finger of white fluffy head.
S: Vinous, grapes and lemons, with wood and a tangy tart, sour citrus and a barnyard undercurrent. This smells really damn good.
T: Tart lemon citrus, lactic and acetic, vinous, with apples and woody dryness over the crystal malt sweetness. Less depth that I'd like to the tart funky profile. The taste is good, but a letdown after the amazing aroma. Finishes dry and tingly on the tongue.
M: Light body, moderate alcohol presence, and good level of carbonation sensation.
O: Well, this started with tons of promise - poured beautifully and smelled amazing. In the end, it was still enjoyable and tasty, but just seems like it didn't live up to its promise. Still, glad to have tried it.

Poured into a Duvel glass bringing forth a voluminous thick meringue of white head. The body is a clear gold, but hard to see through the myriad of bubbles flooding the glass.
The aroma is decidedly citrus heavy as the bottle indicates. Lemon and orange aplenty. There is a nice funky brett yeast to it. Slight white wine character to it.
Big bright citrus fruit on the taste which bring a mild tartness. Musty funky quality. Finishes dry.
Fairly refreshing and super enjoyable.
