4.3/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - pours a golden yellow with a white head that foams up to a 2 or 3 fingers and slowly dissipates leaving a thin ring on the edges

S - pretty freakin amazing, super funky, earthy funk, lemon tart, sour apples, maybe some woody smell.

T - Lemon tart, funk, sour apple, more earthy funk, a dry woodiness

M - medium bodied

D - Very drinkable and super tasty would love to age a bottle or two to see if the funk becomes even more prominent

4.29/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bottle at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is hazy yellowish orange in color. It poured with a finger high beige head that has excellent retention properties and consistently left a quarter finger high head covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of sourness and oak are present in the nose.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell and has sourness with notes of oak, the latter of which stands out in the finish.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is simple yet is pleasant to sip and savor. It is quite easy to drink and an excellent representation of the style.

Note: Batch E!027
