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.

Poured from a 375ml bottle into a tulip glass. Batch #6
A- Pours a deep chardonnay golden yellow color. Has a very high wine like clarity. Small fizzy head that dissipated quickly.
S- Lots of sour apple, some vinegar, some light vanilla, good amount of oak. some white wine character in there.
T- Similar to aroma but amplified to an insane degree. Lots of tart lemon, sour apple, and vinegar. Finishes with a dry yeasty note. Has that old barn cellar thing that sours usually have.
M- Medium-light the flavor makes this a sipper.
O- This is one of the most sour beers I've had and if you're looking for something that delivers in the pucker department seek this one out. It is also somewhat too sour for me in my tastes. It's missing a bit of the subtlety that I got from Supplication. Still an amazing beer and if you want to test the limits of sour seek it out.
