Vintage 2015.
A: Small effervescent head that disappears quickly leaving a nice thin layer atop the beer. Cloudy yellow/gold.
S: Tons of brett and bright lemon, lemongrass, hay and a tiny hint of stone fruit at the end.
T: More white wine than expected with a nice array of light flavors similar to the nose. A little more sludge/funk character than I would like with an uncharacteristic bit of ethanol. Long finish.
M: More viscous and slightly oily than I had expected. The tight carbonation helps scrub the mouth quickly though.
O: Not too bad. I've been looking forward to this one and wondering how long to sit on it. Not my favorite blend of flavors and could use some more crisp acidity to balance out the funk, but I've been drinking a fair amount of more acidic sours lately. Worth a try.

Poured into a tulip glass. Nice light white wine color. You get the white wine barrel right away in the nose. Also you get the fruits very sweet smell. Taste was opposite for me. Very earthy, spice, and you get the white wine barrel taste. Very balanced and it sneaks up on you! Cheers loved this beer!
