Pours a very light straw color. It is lighter than blonde and just barely lemon-tinted in the glass with a nice bright white head. Plenty of carbonation. The smell is complex. There is some tartness/acid scent but very funky to my nose. I get more funk than anything. Like preserved lemons maybe. The taste is sour on the front end but bright in the tartness. This tastes like a lemon sour patch kid to me. The sour is balanced so well and doesn't finish acetic. You get a bit of the wood and the sourness really smoothes out as this warms. I really enjoy lemons, so this beer really hits the spot. It's just this side of sour to not be completely thirst quenching, which is good because it's not like anybody has a big enough stash to throw back a few of these. Probably as balanced and as well made as any sour I've had. Slightly ahead of Cantillon Gueuze for me in terms of bright lemony lambic.

375ml bottle into a tulip. 9/11/13 bottling date.

pours a murky pale yellow with a half inch white head that quickly dissipates. the smell is massively acidic and is just perfect. the taste starts out very sour and tart but then balances out so well with the funkiness and finishes so dry and awesome. an amazing sour beer...just about perfect in every way. carbonation and mouth feel are on point.

had a batch 3 just last week and it turned much sourer than this fresh batch. both versions extremely good. love it
