22oz bottle served in a Prairie Teku
Thanks to Yoshi Optimator for this one! Cheers!

A - Hazy amber/apricot color with 2 fingers of soapy tan bubbles. Zero lacing with a thin cap.

S - Earthy citrus, acidic, white wine, granny smith apples, sharp sourdough bread, dusty grains, over ripe tropical fruit, pineapple and mango, sweet but funky. Fruity alcohol coming through.

T - Follows the nose with earthy citrus, grainy bread, peppery, old grass, apple juice, muted lemons, dry yeast. There's a hint of acidity, but not as much as the nose describes. The finish brings more pepper along with some bitter melon rind.

M - Annoyingly high carbonation, you can't hold a drink in your mouth for more than 2 seconds or it just completely turns to foam. The body is thin for a split second. So you have extreme opposites.

I'm not exactly sure but pretty sure this is a few years old. An interesting beer for sure. The mouthfeel threw it off a little for me. I'm not a fan of swallowing straight foam. Great aroma. The funk is delicate without being light, very earthy with notes of sourdough bread and tropical fruit.
