Nice aromas of wild yeast and orange. Very high carbonation. Mouthfeel is strong but short. Very sour with traces of coriander and citrus. Surprisingly, barrel aging taste is quite absent. No bitterness and very refreshing.

Hazed, light golden blonde, 3 fingers of white head, lots of lace. Smell is a mix of fruit and oak, citrusy orange and lemon, a bit funky with some spicy points as this warmed. Taste is acidic and tart, dry oak flavours, citrus, orange and lemon, more classic wit flavours of coriander, spice and orange peel is present. Highly carbonated, light to medium bodied, champagne like feel. Not bad, but the excess of carbonation makes this a bit tough to drink a lot of.
