4.66/5 rDev +4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
375ml bottle, 2012 vintage, poured into a Hill Farmstead stem.
Pour: Mostly clear golden orange, with a finger of soapy white head that hangs around for a solid bit of time. No lacing.
Smell: Lactic sourness up front, followed by some pear skin and green apples. Some white wine must. A light amount of funk, but this fresh loon is more lactic on the nose than anything else.
Taste: Super lactic tartness up front, followed by some funk and hay. More pear skins, and a lemony bite. Layers are woven very well, and no particular part stands out other than the lactic sourness. Some wheaty sweetness. Finishes sour with pear skin.
Mouthfeel: Quite sour, and it lingers through the end of the palate. Not as dry as I was expecting, which is surprising, and for some reason I really enjoy it. Lightly juicy.
Overall: My first fresh loon and it shows. Funk is turned down, but the lactic sourness still shines. Great!
