Thanks to Bankhead for sharing this one at mrbubbler's tasting.

Batch 8/12.

Pours a murky dark orange with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, fruit, earth, floral, and funk aromas. Taste is much the same with sour fruit, funk, and acidic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a nice floral presence that comes through better in the aroma.

Serving type: bottle.
