A: It is what it says it is!
S: Fresh, hard apple cider. Super sour and slightly funky and yeasty.
T: Yeasty, dry, grassy, barny, and overall delicious.
M: Massive carbonation but so effervescent and even refreshing.
O: Everything you expect it to be and more. Very unique. Very Vermont. This is exactly what it says it is. A sour, tart, but light, farmhouse style ale. Awesome!

750ml bottle, split
A very intriguing beer - a blender using wort from "local" breweries - not sure who these breweries are but Hill Farmstead seems like a decent guess? Nice golden body - pretty tame aroma and not particularly indicative of whats to come. The flavor profile is pretty crazy - not extremely sour but layers of fruit that imparts many different distinct flavor - apricot, peach, sugar, sweetness. Bright and complex - this was great.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Pale yellow body. Clear. Brief white head. Then nothing.
Smell - Funky. Woody and lemony. Some estery notes. Slight vinegar aroma.
Taste - Sharp sourness. Lemony. Very oaky. Again a slight vinegar flavor. Grainy. Crisp.
Mouthfeel - Light and pleasantly sour. High carbonation.
Overall - Clean and really enjoyable sour.

Hazed gold body. Extra fizzy white head with decent retention, but once gone it's completely gone, leaving it looking like a cider.
Really nice aroma. Funky, cider, green apples, vinous.
Great flavor. It's sour but not to the point of puckering. Fresh green apples own the flavor. Cider vinegar. Some bready and funky accents.
Mouthfeel is light, prickly carbonation, and crisp.
This one wowed me. It's the perfect level of acidity and packed with flavor.

Batch #3, 7.1% abv.
Thanks to to Joe for sharing!
Hazy orange, minimal trace carbonation, some larger bubbles cluster loosely on the surface at first. Tiny bubbles visible rising from the meniscus of the glass.
Very nice aroma, musty wet oak, lemon, lychee, grapefruit, authentic lambic-esque funk.
Taste is very similar to an unblended lambic, though they respectfully don't call it as such. Tart puckering lemon and citrus, dry musty oak flavors linger in the aftertaste. Light wild yeast character adds an interesting layer of complexity. Light to medium bodied with low level carbonation. Very interesting beer and worth seeking out.
