Batch 6 --- poured into a HF Tulip
Golden yellow, mostly clear, with a frothy white foam, which after it settles to a thin rim around the edges looks like it could be a miller lite.....
Nose of funky brett, apricot, and cat-wee...
Taste is tart apples, dried apricots, lemon, and funky-goodness...
Love this beer, have had it several times, missing the in-your-face concentration of Le Sarrasin, but not that far behind!

On tap at HF FOFA 2015. HF Taster glass. Clean, a hint of tartness, some oak, a little pepper and yeast. Endlessly drinkable. My favorite offering from HF at FOFA.
