Shimmering burnt gold with a frothy white head and clinging mounds of lace lifting off the edges.

On the nose, floral funk with apple and pear brightness pop big time, bringing to the palate tart grape, herbs, hops, grass, honey, hay, and again bright funk.

A delight!

This is blend #6 poured from a bottle into a tulip.

Careful with this bottle, myself along with others have had it come up extremely bubbly. The pour is a beautiful golden yellow with champagne like bubbles. It quickly dissipates without any lacing. The smell is tart with some farmhouse funk and lemon zest. I don't normally like sours, but this one is nice and palatable. There's a great wheat backbone that the tart flavors layer onto nicely. Up front it is lemon and the finish is a fantastic dark cherry that is wine like.

I'm not normally a fan of the sour craze, but this is one I can get behind.

Gold to straw colored with minimal light penetration. No head is present. The aroma is earthy,peppery yeast. Oak reappears at the back of the palate. The languages as it warms. The mouth is bone dry.
