Thanks for the bottle, Chris!

Pouring a clear light orange with a dense, white head with excellent retention and nice lacing, this looks great! The nose is probably the brightest, most refreshing Almanac beer I've had yet. Bright citrons, oranges and a mildly buttery and moderately tropical chardonnay barrel character are most noticeable up front. A citrusy sourness is noticeable along with a mild vanilla note. Lactic sourness with some oak are also noticeable. Nice!

The palate opens with a refreshing citrus sourness, bright, acidic, mildly oily and particularly reminiscent of citrons. Juicy, floral, mildly tropical, faintly earthy with a musky Brett backbone present, this beer finishes dry, clean and refreshing. A lactic sourness is also present, lending a yogurty twang. Mild oak character is also present. Awesome stuff.
