750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Pale orange body. Small white head. Thick collar.

Smell - Bready. Very grainy. Lightly acidic. Lemon. Kind of a wine barrel presence.

Taste - Light white wine. Very lemony. Bready and very winey. Gets a little acetic in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Well carbonated.

Overall - This isn't very complex, but it's nice. Simple and nicely sour.

Reviewed from notes:
Founders growler into Founders glass.

A: Pours a clear bright golden with a very faint short lived bright white head that faded into a fuzzy collar. Wispy lacework was left down the glass.
S: Funky notes of dry oak and yeast, with notes of peaches and stone fruits, lemon, and slight green apple and golden fruits. Tart and earthy.
T: Follows the nose with oaky dry flavors of tart lemon and green apple, apricot, and earthy yeast and straw. Leafy hops and buttery oak in the finish and aftertaste alongside some woody oak tannins. Drying aftertaste and faint earthy spice. Buttery and fruity overall.
M: There a touch of grease to the mouth. Medium body, tingly carbonation, clean tartness with a kiss of vinegary acidity.
O: Smooth and dry, tart and clean. Good flavor but nothing earth shattering. Great flavors, but wish it was dryer.
