Batch 5 - and might I add finally! A huge want for so long. I'm gonna enjoy this.
Opaque and golden, like a hefe, but without the billowing head. Light clings of lace. Nose is full of earthy funk, chedder cheese (yes cheese), damp wood, citrusy lemon.
This truly has sour power, perhaps one of the most sour beers I've had. But wait it has balance too! Right off the bat lactic sourness hits you, then a very grungy earthy quality to the taste, with grass and hay. Citrus and lemon lift, more sour. The finish is puckering. Lots of that russian river pedigree from there great oak barrels. I suppose we could call that terrior. Scrubbing bubbles sourness, DRY, lingering lactic finish, just amazing. One of the few beers I've had that is worth the hype, 'nough said.
