Yields a pale golden color with a very small, fizzy head, shrinking to a minor ring of lacing.

Smells of a pungent, funk accompanied, dusty tartness, receiving a powerful freshness from crisp lemon peel. Has a flowery undertone, which blends into old oak and ripe red apples.

Has a lively carbonation while the beer maintains a pleasant softness on the tongue with a refreshing clean and light bodied finish.

Tastes of a stony mineralic quality adding a nice zing to the soon established aqueous softness, with some lemon rind, old mushroom and wet grass creating a pleasantly tart foundation. Dried apple peel, dusty nutshell and just a hint of cakey, old malts compliment to the sourness. Finishes with its initial aqueous softness, dryer lemon zest and a bit of earth, while remaining its balanced appearance.

Great Sour, getting pretty close to a Lambic as for its subtle, balanced yet focussed flavor profile.
