A good flavour delivery for lower alcohol (though not the price). Lemon there, sour solid for a couple years old. Some white wine barreling. For sour fans.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy pale orange body. Medium white head and a thin collar.

Smell - Very nice aroma. Strong lemon. Oak. Yeasty. Dry grass. Some white wine. Like a really lemony lambic aroma.

Taste - Intensely oaky. Lemon all over. A little grassy. Like the aroma, it's like a very intensely lemony lambic flavor. White wine is the lasting flavor aside from the lemon.

Mouthfeel - Well carbonated. Medium body.

Overall - I am really enjoying this one. Reminds me a lot of the on-site bottles at Pizza Boy, like Permasmile.
