Interesting for the style. Reminds me a lot of Gose. Which makes me wonder why I paid the same as a full 6 pack, but, this one also has character that even Westbrook Gose does not have. This one was Batch 5, navel orange.

Appearance: Poured fairly gently into the glass not a lot of head in this one. Carbonation was present though. Golden hazy appearance. Almost cider like in that regard.

Aroma: Some funk as it warmed, not as funky at first when it was on the colder side. Some orange notes definitely came through, very citrus like in the notes.

Taste: Tart, some funk but not strong in that regard. I did detect the oak from the barre. This one might be a little young. With time more flavors the earthy funk might come out more prominent. As for now, I truly enjoy what is laid before me.

Overall: Not a bad representation. A little pricey for what it is, but it is a nice experience nonetheless, very clean finish which is typical of the style. Well balanced and worth seeking out in my opinion.
