Poured as a nice looking Yellow color with a fizzy white head on top. The smell is pretty funky along with some citrus in there too. The taste of the beer follows the nose, lemony citrus funk. The feel is light bodied, sharp and crisp. Overall a very nice beer.

essentially american gueuze, this is among the best side project beers i have ever had of any persuasion, and fully worthy of all the accolades it has received! this is incredible beer, a blend of 1, 2, and 3 year wild ales aged in oak. white and red wine elements to the nose, insanely mature funk, a solera sort of inoculation from what i understand, this yeast mix is insane. i get heaps of fruity brett, pear and apple and apricot notes, with some nice bacterial sting too, iodine, oak, and aged hops, really lambic-esque, developed, and complex, i could sit here and sniff on this all day without taking a sip, my mouth waters enough to satiate my thirst, its unreal. the flavor is just as good as the nose, a lemon lime soda complexion real quick followed by a raw wheat cereal character and a pils malt crackery element that is more robust that i am used to in belgian lambic, but still understated and appropriate, i want to taste the grain in a beer like this, and i certainly do here. the yeast drives it of course though, fruity and tannic, with the oak and wine elements alongside. layered bretty maturity, musty basement, wet straw, dog funk, and wood, sounds weird but tastes amazing. the sour side is moderate in acidity but really interesting in flavor with a cutting lemon element. slight cherry for a second, must be some red wine wood here? not all the way dry to finish, this takes awhile to fade out, which is just fine with me as it tastes incredible. awesome carbonation too, i love a beer like this that is alive and not still, whatever tradition says. an expensive bottle at the cellar, but i have come to know that you get what you pay for in here, and i have never regretted bucking up for a crazy side project beer. this is among their best work, and among the best american lambic types in existence. just about full marks here from me!
