Found this bottle sitting all alone at Beverages 4 Less today. Thought I would give it a home.
A: With the cork popping ferociously, I should have known what to expect. I let this one sit for a minute uncorked, but couldn't wait any longer. Poured gently to my glass, but it still foamed heavily. An aggressive head layer outweight the beer in glass, but fades patchily in only a minute. Once that has somewhat settled, I am left with a golden yellow body showing its heavy carbonation.
S: A great cirtusy funk rising from this one. I'm detecting lemon grass, wet blanket, and subtle vineagar-like notes. Almost sweet soured cherries, but very faint.
T: I expected tart, but no. Some earthiness, reminding me of fresh rain (I don't know why). Still funky, but in a different way. Almost like a mild cheese funk. Tasting a little grapefruit, too.
M: Flat body. A bit runny and watery.
D: Great start, but finished a bit flat for me. From the loud pop and strong sour quality on the nose, to less that thrilling flavors and lacking body. Just not my favorite, but still worth the try.
