Batch 003

Top half of the bottle pours a very clear golden color with a thin white head.

Ooo, I love this smell. Mostly it is funky sourness with a little bit of bready malts.

There is some subtle fruit flavors up front, mainly pear, with a bit of bready quality that is followed by some subtle tartness and just a wee bit of alcohol warmth. Very dry and refreshing overall.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp, just like it should be.

I really like this beer. Even though this beer won't "wow" you with big flavors or complexity, I really enjoyed it. I don't think I have enjoyed a beer this much that is this "small" and subtle in quite some time, as I tend to gravitate towards big beers. This one would be great in the summertime. Another winner from RR.
