2013 on the cork. Nope, not waiting 20 years.
Shiny golden colour, one finger white head, sticky enough lacing in about a minute.
Barnyard funk stronger than the sourness, with a sweet lactic component, lots of green hay, oaky floorboard and orchard tree bark. Some apple tartness, sour lemons, faint vinegar.
Sourness hits in the first sip with citrus (mostly lemon, but with a subtle orange-sweetness) zest, some green apple cider tartness and musty white grapes. Really complex, lots of fruity notes spiking here and there. Barnyard funk isn't overwhelming, but goes perfectly with the astringency of the beer. Some earthy-milky yeasts too, especially towards the finish. Dry finish, with acidic apple aftertaste, wood and green leafy notes (which is probably where the hops helped a bit).
Light to medium body, prickly fizz, a tiny bit creamy. The dryness isn't too agressive, but leaves enough space for the fruity/green notes to linger.
Perfect.
