4/5 rDev -2.7%
Light golden pear color with a super fizzy and sprite head.
Nice subtle tangy aroma with notes of fresh flowers, Chardonay, mineralization and Apple cider vinegar.
The flavor is tangy with honeysuckle, sour with Apple cider vinegar, and funky with flowers, white grapes and white wine.
The feel is tangy as well with a bit of sour and a nice easy smoothness.
Tangy, funky, and sour, this beer is simple but fun.

4.16/5 rDev +1.2%
Pours a very cloudy, dark golden yellow color with banana edges and a massive, three finger frothy white head that very slowly settles into a thick, pillowy cap. Possibly over carbonated with very good retention, taking a while to settle and leaving large chunks of soapy lacing behind.
Earthy aroma with a prominent musty brett character. Strong barnyard and wild yeast presence along with hints of sourdough bread, floral hops, lactic funk and subtle citrus. Smells kind of like a bretted Berliner with tame acidity. As it warms the wheat, bread notes come forward along with some banana and lemon pith but the nose is dominated by the musty brett notes. Complex and inviting aroma.
Medium body with tight carbonation and tart, puckering sourness that lingers throughout into a dry finish. More sour than the nose hinted at with prominent musty funk and citric acidity. There's a really nice balance of dry brett effervescence, bright lemon zest, and subtle lactic cheesiness. Underneath, there is a decent wheat beer base with hints of sourdough bread, banana, lemon peel and light fruit esters. This is a very well balanced beer that is clean, crisp and refreshing. Some really nice flavors bouncing off of each other with just a touch of funk countering the brett and tart acidity. Subtle boozy sweetness in the finish but the ABV is very well masked making this complex beer dangerously drinkable.
