4.08/5 rDev -2.4%
375 ml bottle poured into a teku glass. Bottled in 2013. Batch 8.
Appearance: Pours a dark golden orange color with less than a finger of a white head that settle to a ring with some thick bubbled. Body is hazy but still transluscent.
Smell: Really funky, oak, lemon, apple, light herbal quality, floral, white grape and some lacto.
Taste: Medium sourness upfront that carries through the finish. More of a clean lactic sourness than funky, which flips the script compared to the aroma. Flavors are white grape, oak, slight spicy yeast character, wheat and hay.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with low/medium, fine, but lively carbonation. Easy to drink and fairly refreshing.
Overall: Really good beer and one of the better values out there for what it is. I'd definitely get this again.

3.5/5 rDev -16.3%
Poured into a tulip. I got this a while ago, I guess it's close to two years old at this point.
3.75 A: First pour yielded a ever so slightly hazed dark orange color. Big white fluffy head necessitated multiple pours. Retention is good and a half finger of lacing is left.
4.00 S: Very nice nose on this. The main aromas are equal parts fruit and funk. Peach, cherry, lemon with just a touch of mango. Funk is a dirty woodiness, grass and dry hay, and wildflower floral. Neither sour nor tart, but quite complex.
3.50 T: Taste isn't as good as the nose promised. It's a lot drier than I was expecting and without as much of the fruitiness. There's still a decent amount of lemon though giving this a punch of tartness. Woody dry funk with some of the dirty hay notes. Not as complex as the nose.
3.25 M: Lighter medium body. Despite the large head, this has a lower level of carbonation and isn't as spritzy as I would have hoped. Still, it's smooth and good enough here.
3.50 D: It's good, but not great.
