Cloudy amber body topped with a very good head.
Funky and fruity aroma featuring orange.
Funky and fruity taste with, as expected, too much funk for my taste.

a: pale gold, hazy, little to no head with just a bit of lacing

s: funk, pepper, apple cider vinegar, a slight astringency/malt vinegar quality (think sarsons) definitely an astringent pinch, also fresh sliced apple

T: immediate pepper and lime notes, not quite lemon, slight hoppy bitterness (nondescript), some suggestions of pear and almost like a pineapple but without the sweetness, a definite juicy quality, the sensation of biting into a sweet tart

m: a tad oily but not in a bad way

o: decent but underwhelming, has some of the surface sour character of bon chien but not amazing, would buy at a bar if the price was right which i can’t help but imagine it wouldn’t be, kind of odd because it does not taste like a saison, a BPA or a belgain blonde but it borrows slightly from all of them, decent not remarkable, you don’t have to have it but you don’t have to turn it down if offered either

From XXXII. 75cl. Un Teku glass. At dinner, with chicken steaks + papas aliñas; and watching Los Soprano 1x01 after that. Refreshing tartness in aroma and mouth. Tangy and dry, giving thirst. High carbonation, causing los of foam. Not so bad, but 75cl become tiresome, 33cl would be better. Some sediments at bottom

Oddly green and vegetal. Like celery with a weird oakiness.
