Fluffy off white head and a reddish-orange body. Retains and laces nicely which is kind of crazy for how sour the beer is.

Could smell this thing forever. Wine, oak, lacto, vanilla, cherry, raspberry, strawberry fruitiness, little vinegar. Light whiskey, sweetness, and brett comes through on the flavor.

Prominent tartness and slightly sour, pretty bubbly and crisp at the start. Carbonation settles nicely. Dry. Really spot on.

Another superb beer in the series.
