Thanks to mrbubbler for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Pours a clear light yellow with a foamy bone colored head that fades to nothing. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with some fruity and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with a fruity flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that smells better than it tastes in my opinion.

Huge thanks to kubrick215 for sharing.

Pours a very cloudy, murky golden yellow color with dark ripe banana hues and a half finger off-white head that quickly dissapears.  Minimal spotty lacing.

Musty, slightly funky aroma with a nice farmhouse/barnyard presence along with toasted oak, lactic funk and musty brett.  Almost wheat/Berliner like with sourdough bread, citrus juice, wild yeast and a lactic cheese character.  Lots of lemon citrus character and the lactic funk stands out more as it warns.

Full bodied, especially for the style with a really nice balance of barrel, dry, musty brett, citrus acidity and lactic funk.  Crisp and refreshing with lemon acidity nicely complimenting the dry, musty brett.  Dry toasted oak carefully blended in, melding nicely and not overpowering the other notes.  Nice carbonation/spritzer like with the lactic funk coming on strong in the back end with subtle cheesiness.  Well balanced and easy to drink considering the complexity.  I really enjoyed this one a lot.
