Batch 6. 6% ABV

375 ml bottled 9/11/2013. Poured into a Russian River stemmed glass.

Appearance: Pours a bright golden yellow with less than a finger of a fizzy white head that dissipates quickly to a thin collar. Body is mostly clear with hight visible carbonation.

Smell: Bright lemon, white grape, green apple, funk hay and oak.

Taste: Light barnyard, hay, green apple, lemon and other citrus with some mild neutral oak. High acidic sourness that borders on mouth puckering.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, and bit thin with medium lively carbonation. Finishes dry.

Overall: One of the best American spontaneously fermented beers I've had and probably the closest tasting to an actual lambic (though still not quite the same). Well worth seeking out.
