A - Pours a hay/straw in color with a frothy white head.
S - Good amount of bready yeast, slight vinegar & oak aspect. Loving the funk of the nose.
T - The oak is a lot more prominent and tartness to the front. Bready yeasty compliments it perfectly along with a crisp apple character on the finish.
M - Light body, high carbonation. Perfect for the style.
O - Interesting brew that will keep any sour fan interested.

The beer comes in a golden hay color with some haze with large foamy white head.
The aroma has tons of lemon peel, vinegar sourness, huge Brett notes, and some oak. Wonderful tartness in the aroma.
The flavor has TONS of complexity. There's lemon peel acidic sourness, but mostly vinegar tartness. Then there's some wheat and saison notes along with yeasty notes. The finish then hits you with oak and lots of woodiness, without being too earthy and bitter. There's lots of white wine vinous notes because of this oak character.
This beer absolutely just blew me away. There's the combination of fruit, Brett funk, the tartness, the saison in there, along with that really intriguing oak and wine combination. All this together makes this an extremely complex and exciting beer.
