4.21/5  rDev -7.3%

Bomber with huge thanks to MrKennedy. Split 4 ways at tasting. Reviewed from notes.

Super turbid cumquat with a modest but game white head that eventually fades to a collar.

As expected there's big apricot, but displayed on a very sweaty, urine-y canvas. Plenty of funk and horse blanket and palpably thick acidity. Mild sherbety high notes keep it in check. If not for the heavy urine contingent it would be a glorious nose.

Taste displays more Pezzy, sherbety character. Uber tangy apricot, sweaty armpits with the classic lemony tartness poking through on the back end.

Chewy body, but zingy and very spritely on the tongue. Pretty spot on for the style.

Great stuff. Fairly simple concept but phat and delicious.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Very hazy orange. Small white head. Wisps and some lacing. Thin collar.

Smell - Grainy with lots of citrus. Stone fruits. A little bit musty. Nice aroma.

Taste - Tart and grainy. Lots of citrus and peach or stone fruit or something. Dry pucker to it. Wheat and hay. Nice.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation. Medium light body.

Overall - Really nice. Not earth-shattering, but greater than the sum of its parts.
