Bottle. Deep hazy golden like the tipical Cantillon. Minimal head though. Aroma is barnyard, brett and leather but also very fruity (mango, oranges and apricot). Very wild and expressive. Taste is citrusy tart, but not very dry. It reminds me of a lemon pie with candied zests. Lemon is puckering but sweetness lingers in the aftertaste. Slight musty feel. It sure ain't a perfect beer but it taste goddamn good. It feels almost like a pure lambic and is definitly one step ahead from the regular american wild. I slightly prefer Temptation to this one, but it deifnitly hit the spot in its category.

Batch 5. Tulip glass. Wedding beer.
A: Pours a pale gold, with a few cms of white head, fizzling quickly to a persistent ring.
S: Sweet and funky stone fruit, lots of toasted oak, orange tangerine, like a delicious sweet and sour candy. Big and enticing aroma.
T: Sweet and sour candy, a moderate mouth-puckering sourness. A little fruit and oak barrel are detectable but the other flavors dominate it.
M: Medium body and medium light carbonation, creamy body.
O: Beautiful aroma, tasty, and good drinkability which is limited mostly by the level of sourness.

Big thank you to rrryanc and ArchEnemyBrew for both getting me a bottle of this, a huge want. Batch 5.
Appearance. Pours a clear, rich yellow gold with two fingers of bubbly white head that fades pretty quickly.
Smell. Strong woody funk and leather with traces of melons, apples, white wine and a touch of honey.
Taste. Really sour, tart lemon juice and cider vinegar with some leathery funk and musty, dank old wood. There's even a slight saltiness going on. Very, very nice (despite this description).
Mouthfeel. Medium+ body with medium+ lively but smooth carbonation.
Overall. An awesome brew. Very sour and really delicious. Enjoying it immensely!

Batch 5 from a tulip. Holy amazeballs this is an awesome beer.
Beautiful gold brew. Tart, funky, earthy aroma. Sour, sour, sour. Citrus, funk. Dry finish that leaves me salivating for more.
I wish this was easier to acquire, but well worth trading for. Certainly at the top of my list of favorites.

Thanks beerzebub, Jonathan, for bringing this beer that I should have tasted long ago. Batch 5.
The beer pours a nice straw yellow colored body with not much head other than a bone white ring.
The smell and taste have a beautiful elegant sourness that has a really nice roundness to it somehow as well. A mix of lighter fruits like white grape, apricot, pear. Really beautiful taste, almost like a fine chapagne with a big wild yeast note, really nice.
Effervescent and bubbly feel, very elegant once again. This is so balanced and great.
