750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep hazy orange. No head.

Smell - Kinda funky. Orange. Dry grass. A little lemony acidity.

Taste - Much more sour than I thought. Lemon. A bit of vinegar. Woody. Some deep brown sugar. A bit of oxidation.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Medium carbonation.

Overall - I thought this would be terrible, but it's pretty good. Very sour.
