Picked up four bottles for trading at Oxbow & just had to open one. Pours dark amber and cloudy with slight sediment, appearance reminds me of apple juice. Bubbly lacing sticks to glass and floats in pockets on top.
Smell is fantastic; tart Brett, tangy, very enjoyable.
Taste: tart, sour, long lingering finish that resonates through the nose; something slightly sweet but not identifiable, very enjoyable sipping.
Mouthfeel: Tingly & tart! Slight puckering feel, then a dry finish that lingers in the nose.
Overall: Great sour beer. This is not my favorite style, or one I commonly drink. But that being said, there was nothing that made me want to stop drinking this beer. I was truly sad when the glass was empty! The sour was perfect and not overpowering or too funky, like others I've tried. Highly recommend for a new sour drinker or an experienced one, if you can get your hands on this rare gem. My wife, an avid wine drinker and beer appreciator, loved it.
Other note: Got better as it warmed, would say perfect at 60-65 degrees. May not get traded after all.
Serving type: bottle
