Pennsylvania

4.59/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Bottled 31 January 2013

Pours a hazy dark golden yellow color with straw/banana yellow edges and a two finger pillowy white head that very slowly settles into a lasting ring. Great retention with streaks of soapy lacing left behind.

Musty barnyard aroma with lactic funk, damp earth, horseblanket, citric acidity and a very subtle acetic character. Strong barrel/damp oak in the nose with cheesy funk, grass, straw, cobweb and sweat. Not too funky however with pale malt, light fruit and vibrant citrus countering the earthier elements. Some bread and biscuit along with apple and a prominent zesty lemon juice presence. No solvent character to speak of. A little tame at this young age but the different characteristics mesh together very well in the aroma.

Medium body with soft carbonation and delicate sourness. Tart and puckering with a decent amount of earthy, lactic funk but not harsh or overly acidic. Dry oak/damp wood flavor but not toothpick-like or overwhelming. Some cheesy lactic funk with musty bugs, straw and earthy grass countered by pale malt, bread, ester-y fruit sweetness and citrus acidity. Really well balanced with biscuit-y malt, sourdough bread, sweet apple and tart lemon juice flavor. Lingering acetic vinegar presence in the finish that leaves me salivating for more. No harsh or solvent-like off flavors to be found. Perfectly balanced and extremely easy to drink which is surprising considering this beer's complexity. Just an overall amazing beer. Exemplary for the style.

4.49/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Relatively clear golden liquid, slight haze. Pure white head, decent retention.

Tart aroma, straw, funk, lemon. Strong and clear.

Taste does not disappoint. Strongly sour and tart, sharp flavors, citric acid with musty funkiness.

Light and drinkable, oily and slick. Puckering and a mild back-throat acidity helps you to slow down and savor each sip. Long, long, semi-dry finish.

Lovely beer - easy to see why it's considered among the best in the style.
