The only knock i have on this is that it explodes everywhere as soon as i open it. Tastes smells looks and feels amazing, but just kind of a waste of a bit of beer. Once this is worked out this will be another amazing prairie sour.

Very musty, dry yeast aroma. A little dry malt & pear is present as well, but overall the nose is a litlle absent. Lots of bubbly, champagne-like carbonation and mouthfeel. Notes of floral hops, white grape and chalky barnyard yeast form the taste. Faint honeycomb as well. Very crisp and quite dry though a little resin is present. Easy to drink with a concise, elegant profile with just a little yeast funk to stir the pot. Great brew.

poured 12oz bottle into Duvel Tulip

A - Pours a very light hazy yellow lemonade like color. Gorgeous 2-3 finger white head that fades as quickly only to leave a thin white ring around the glass. Lacing is not present.

S - Lemons, tart apples and hints of white grape. A slight funk is present with a grass like smell.

T - This is fantastic tasting. Not overly sour to make you pucker, but a nice sharp tartness of lemon. It really is like homemade lemonade. Not much funk in the taste. This is the best "sour" I have probably had.

M - Very nice carbonation with a tart, dry finish that is so refreshing!

O - Hands down my favorite sour that I have tried. Really wish I could get this in WI. Thanks goes out to Ken in OK for sending it my way.
