Golden straw color that is hugely carbonated beverage comes with more head than you can shake a stick at. Watching the bubbles rise to the top almost reminds me of sparkling white wine or a champagne. I could not get my nose out of this beer, there's a peach note with musty mushrooms, hay, sour blueberries, farmhouse, wood, lemon, just straight up funk. And it smelled really good. The taste was sour, the bottle was about a year old but still had a brightness to it. Blueberries and peach, sour funk all with a nice prickly carbonation.

Really a fun beer to share with others and watch people guess all the aromas and what they are tasting in it. Great beer.

A benchmark for the style - well balanced and delicious

aroma: sweet and sour funk with lemon citrus, pepper and musty notes.

taste: lemon citrus, pepper, funk, wood, slight sherbet and some grapefruit bitterness. Great balance of sweet, sour and spice.

two words: quality beer!

Liight orange towards golden in color; hazy. Pours with a rich 2+ finger head that dissipates rather quickly, leaving the slightest amount of foam on the surface of the beer and lacing on the sides of the glass. Nice sour (think green apple), citrusy aroma; made me want to taste the beer. Starts slightly acidic and citrusy, the progresses to a nice smooth sour finish that is slightly tart at the end. I found the taste refreshing and thirst-quenching. Light to medium body, lots of light carbonation that leaves a slight tingly sensation in your mouth. Overall I found this beer to be a solid sour that I would enjoy drinking again.
