Thanks to Adam for busting this great brew out at an impromptu tasting!
Appearance: Pours a perfectly clear golden color with 1/4" of white head. Carbonation is there, but fairly minimal for the style. Head retention is nice, as a nice layer remains throughout the duration of the beer. The clarity and clear, warm color make the appearance of this beer very nice.
Smell: Smells of lemons, tartness, some pale fruitiness (maybe some mango and peach), slight funk and light mustiness. Pretty nicely balanced between the tartness, funk and fruit character.
Taste: Some initial sweetness that is slightly peachy with some mango, followed by lemony tartness, slight funk, and a very sour finish. This beer definitely has more lacto sourness than brett funk, as the taste lacks funk and mustiness for the most part. A very good taste, but wish it had that extra gear. Still, good.
Overall/Mouthfeel: Mouthfeel is perfect. Light bodied with ample carbonation. Overall, a damn nice wild that I was excited to try, and would definitely have again.
Serving type: bottle
