A - Golden with a light haze and a small white head

S - Tart lemon, light blue cheese funk, and tart vinegar that gives it a good balance of tart and funk 4.5

T - Green apple, lemon peel, white vinegar and light oak. Reminds me a bit of a sour apple juice. Light blue cheese funk near the backend that balances the tartness 4.25

M - Not much carbonation but has a tart bite from the vinegar and tartness. Finish has a light tingle near the end.

O - Tart and lightly funked sour that has a nice apple presence balanced with a slight blue cheese funk

A: The beer is slightly hazy pale yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that left lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of sourness are present in the nose—similar to what you would expect from a gueuze.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell and has stronger flavors of sourness with notes of oak from the barrel aging.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is quite sour but in no way does the sourness completely overwhelm your palate.

Note: 2013 Batch 2

Batch 2, 2013. Bottle @ Ale Arsenal. Hazy blond with minimal head retention. Bretty barnyard funk and pineapple fruitiness on the nose, with a touch of lactic yogurt-y tartness and a hint of phenolic plastic. This beer really shines on the palate; the mix of fruity and funky brett and gentle lactic acidity is near-perfect to me. Peach, pineapple, yogurt. Medium-light body, supremely quaffable. I could take down liters of this stuff. Excellent beer.
