look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Purchased today at the brewery. Was expecting to age to bring the funk out more but wow!!

A- pale orange with large 3 finger head that quickly dissipates.

S- like a 5 year old cantillon. Goat cheese mixed with grapefruit and lemons. Peach and other pit fruit dances around in here too.

T- much like the smell. Grapefruit rind and fresh squeezed lemon. Dry and acidic. I love these that add no fruit and taste like this. Perfect blending. Cantillon better watch out!!

M- medium/high carbonation with an overall great drinkability!! Medium body allowing this to roll around your tongue and stick to it to allow the flavors to develop well after the sip.

Overall- wish I didn't drive 6 hours south or had somebody else to buy another 4 bottles as that's what the limit was. Would feel like a 19 year old again asking other people to buy me beer!!

3.46/5  rDev -21%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Shared bottle.

Pours a not particularly appealing looking hazy amber.

Aroma: Mild funkiness for style. Less off-putting than some others.

Flavor: Fruity and complex taste starts sweet and sour but turns tart and bitter by the finish. Quite tart mid-taste.

North Carolina

4.61/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a very hazy orange-tinged golden color capped by an inch of foam that fades quickly; plenty of dotty lace is left behind

Smell: Lemon, green apple, leather and barnyard

Taste: Lemon and green apple, up front, rather acetic at the outset; develops funk and softer slightly tropical fruit flavors, in the middle; the finish is dry and leathery; the aftertaste is like a really sour white grapefruit

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation and a nice pucker

Overall: What an excellent beer this is after aging it in my cellar for three years; hits on all the right notes
