Poured From a 750ml bottle. *This is my first true sour*

Pours a light hazy light orange, almost yellow or golden, with a decent amount of off-white, fluffy head. Very carbonated.

Smells funky at first. I let it sit for a few minutes before smelling again to allow some of the funk to blow off. Smells of hay, barnyard, farty, musty, notes of champagne or white wine barrels.

Tastes very similar to how it smells. SUPER dry. Steals all the moisture in your mouth.

Mouth feel is great. Very light and heavily carbonated, almost like drinking a sparkling white wine.

Overall the beer was quite an experience. At taste and smell I was fearful I wouldn't like it, but like all great things, it grew on me as I sipped it, and maybe as it opened up a bit.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Look: Pours with a fizzy sound, average white head. Fully diminishing. Fair/low amount of lacing. Dark yellow, cloudy, a few particles floating around. Almost no carbonation. Nothing too impressive.

Smell: Sharp fresh, acid, lemon, vinegar with musty, earthy, farmhouse funk. Beneath hides light sweetness and yeast. Fair enough.

Taste: Very light sweet start then fast overwhelming medium sour (lemon zest, vinegar...). Then comes very light funk - must say I'm missing some, hoped there would be more. After the sour part it gets unexpectedly watery, a bit herbal. Medium sour with light musty funk stay in the end.

Mouthfeel: Crisp carbonation, dry, fresh, light body.

Overall: Very drinkable, sour OK, but missing something more, gets old too fast.
