Pours a bright semi hazy yellow. Wispy white foam head. Nose is tart, fruit skin, grasses, spice and funk. Funkyness is very mellow but flows throughout this beer. Nice notes of grape must and apple skin. Bready malt and grass. Medium body with nice carbonation bite.

Yellow color. Aroma has floral yeast esters, grass and light farmhouse funk. Taste is sour, floral, citrusy, astringent and dry. Light body with high effervescence. Well made, quite rustic yet clean.

A: Funky, light esters, slight spice with lots of vinous white wine character and light sourness.

A: Deep orange color, hazy, with a small uniform white head that has adequate retention.

T: Crisp, the beer is moderately sour with oak and lots of white wine vinous notes.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and light, but pleasing acidity.

O: Solid; the mixed fermentation gives the beer a funky, tart character with plenty of white wine notes that complement the base beer well.
