A - Clear pale yellow, bubbly. Abundant head settled to a thin layer with some lacing.
S - Slightly sweet but tart like a chardonnay. Fresh vegetation. Some definite clean wood and funk present, interesting. Almost a sharp cheeselike aroma.
T - Sour tartness hits hard and fast along with a white grape and apple rind, giving way to a variety of subtle complex sensations. Clean wood plank, Green pepper, lettuce, baguette crust, a sort of meaty earthyness along with a little cheese & dank earthyness too. Light apricot, fresh sourdough, lemon rind, lime leaf. Bubblegum, curry leaf and yeast flavors ramp up as it warms.
M - Dry and a little prickly with the carbonation, not unlike wood on the tongue! Finishes very clean.
O - Very interesting, likely an excellent meal compliment but definitely a conversation piece at least. Best enjoyed slowly and with friends.
