Dark golden, almost amber, small white string of foam.
Nice sour complexity on the nose, mostly lactic, with some cider apples sweetened with lots of caramel. Lemon, some hay and herbs, fresh hops, faint sour cherry, floral notes, faint honey. Smells really appealing.
Crisp and sour start, but sweet too, like sugared slices of lemon. Sweet cider notes, light pear, overripe cherries, even faint melon. Splash of honey with fresh floral notes. Lactobacillus shines in the finish, along with some funky, also doughy yeasts, with a creamy dry hay feel. Bitter hops, but not enough to cover the sweetness.
Aftertaste isn't that dry, the tartness fading away beneath the malty sweetness and the thick yeasts. Hops tend to linger, too, which is nice. Alcohol hidden perfectly. Medium body, low, but somewhat prickly carbonation.
A big sour ale, sweet, but also fresh. Great contrasts, but not overly complex.
