Nice split with rudzud.

Very small fizzy head fades pretty quickly, no lacing semi clear slight hazy orange red color.

Nose big sour tart funk, acetic acid, tart flemmy like sour malts and sour fruit, a little jammy raspberry seed like.

Taste brings more sourness, light with decent sour funk, little bready note, sour malt but a blonde malt like, tart berry funk, sour raspberry like with little seed, hint tangy flemmy, little acetic acid, little malty sour malt flavor. Finish little flemmy sticky sour berry seed and acetic acid, little sour malt, etc.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, light carb, little sticky flemmy.

Overall pretty interesting, nice blend of sour malt and fruity sour thing.

Split with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a hazy amber hue with a thin wispy head that fades to leave light wisps and a thin halo.

S - Aromas of loads of avant garde base beer, nice light berries, raspberries, nice funk, light sour tartness, sooo much genetic berry seed.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, nice avant garde base, loads of tartness, generic berry seeds, raspberry, nice funk, good golden notes, really pleasant tang.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, could user a bit more.

O - Overall this beer was really tasty, one of the better tracks, incredible fruity tartness. Just delicious berries.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Murky orange. Thin collar and a couple bubbles.

Smell - Fruity, like peaches. Acidic and bready malts.

Taste - Bretty sourness. Lots of fruit flavors and grainy malts. Less exciting than the smell.

Mouthfeel - Bretty and dry. A little heavy.

Overall - Quality flavors, but it's not really intense. I want a more intense flavor.
