Hazy hues of peach-apricot amber, with a soft, off white head dying to a thin film and ring with filmy, slightly clingy, funky arches of lace. The appearance is not necessarily carbonated and bubbly, but is still very active and alive.

EXTREME FUNK! Horse blanket, hay, straw, big blue cheese, with only a hint of fresh, wild strawberry right at end of a big, long whiff.

An initially tart sour flavor is rudely interrupted by nutty blue cheese and cow patties. Then all of a sudden, wild strawberry jam sharply cuts in. Oddly enough, as it warms, strawberry candy becomes more influential, while the funk does less so. When nearing the end of the bottle, a hint of peanut creeps by here and there.

Dry with no lingering aftertaste.

May 2016 vintage.
