Bottled 8/28/09

A - Pours a hazy gold, no carb, no head.

S - Barnyard funkiness, citrus, sour apple, pear. Oak.

T - Obviously sour and tart, sour apple, straw, "funk". Nicely balanced and complex.

M - Light bodied with minimal carbonation. Very crisp and refreshing. Dry finish, similar to an oaked white wine.

D - Very nice in small quantities, split this bottle between 5 people and we were all happy with out samples. Had this after dinner at a tapas bar, found it to be a great digestif.

Served in a tumbler at Map Room 6/23/07.

A: Hazy straw color with a teenie head. Not even a hint of lace.

S: Tart and funky. Very earthy aroma!

T: See above. Incredible!

M: Tart and prickly to the tongue. Memorable.

D: Surprisingly refreshing. Drinkability kept getting better and better as the temperature rose.

Serving type: on-tap

this beer's a hazed yellow-y orange. it reminds me of turnips or something for some reason. zero head.
the aroma is an acidic, funky, vaguely locker room-esque combination of lemon, floral strawberry, plastic, and horse blanket. it's also got some perfume-y vaguely wheat-like and barrel aged aromas.
the taste is a puckering lemon juice, coupled with some lighter airier berry flavors as in the aroma. plastic at towards the finish and aftertaste. a little vinegar like. barnyard and wet wool pervades. some oaky vanilla smoothes it out a bit, not much, but a bit. this stuff doesn't pull any punches about what it is and i feel like there is a middle ground with this type of thing either you like it or you don't. just straight up sour beer with nothing else for your tongue to grab onto.
the mouthfeel is thinner side of medium bodied and only the faintest hint of carbonation. it suits this beer though obviously.
good drinkability, it's actually smoother than i anticipated, being a pretty easy drinking experience as these types go.
