Let stand at room temperature for 20 minutes before pouring.

A: Light straw color, slightly hazy. The coarse egg-shell head quickly retreats to a non-existent head, but moderate effervesce.

S. Sour yeast, bacteria, neutral oak, tropical fruits, and a little funk.

T. The taste describes the explanation much more than the nose. This is certainly a tart sour, with a strong oak barrel present with minor notes of a dry white wine. The tropical fruits blend to remind me of a canned tropical fruit cup. A little hop bitterness.

M. Very smooth, light body, moderate carbonation.

O. Very good. This is a fruited up light sour with an excellent barrel presence and high tart level. This is easy to drink and goes great with food. This could easily replace a white wine to accompany a good chicken or fish dish.

Very tasty beer, with a sour lacto nose and tropical fruit flavor. My only hangup is that is was kind of thin, possibly a tad watery.
