16.9 oz bottle, highball glass (it was the best thing available)

A – Very yellow to golden with a hint of dark gold, a bit of cool haze but mostly high clarity. A huge white head of foam, at least two inches, fades slowly to leave a finger of head at the top. Effervescent bubbles. (4.00)

S – Apricots and spicy fruit, haystack. Some lemony citrus in the background. A lot of acidity in the profile. Not at all tart as much as just funky (shocker). A little bit of tropical fruit. (3.75)

T – A strong dose of lactic acid right off the top, the acidity washes over the tongue and is replaced by a residual sweetness. Lemons, both sweet and tart, and straw. Again, some tropical notes from the mosaic hops. Brett character, if any, is very subdued. (3.50)

M – Only mildly effervescent, despite appearances. Again, bitterness on the front, a bit of tartness from the lactobacillus, and then sweetness that is not cloying or overwhelming, and does not stick to the tongue. A relatively wet finish. (3.50)

O – The mosaic hops definitely add a bit of a tropical feel here. I like the balance on this, and the lactobacillus is very much present but not overwhelming. While not the best example of its use, I think this is a beer worth drinking. (3.75)
