A soured biere de champgne, well this is a first! Love both style, and this hybrid is a winner too. Nic champagne yeast and malt base with succulent sour grape, bright flowers, and dry white wine and oak finish. Goes from dry, to wet, to back to dry, with each switch unlocking new flavors. Smell has more of a musk and yeast center, but very spring like and pleasant. Touch of cumulative acidity and sneaky carbonation.

=2018 release (batch 2).

A: Pours a pale orangish with no head or lacing. Decently hazy.

S: Moderate oak, sweet white wine, light barrel char, vanilla and cardamom, light earth and barnyard. Balanced toward the oak.

T: Leans more towards the white wine and green gooseberries than the nose, with light dry oak barrel and a moderate sourness through a long finish which is cut partially by a dose of sweetness. The palate comes off as a sort of sweet and sour thing.

M: Soft medium-light body with medium-high carbonation.

O: Really tasty stuff. The sourness is just a touch too high/sharp for my taste, and the sweetness is a bit high, but otherwise great flavors and balance between base and oak.
