750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Pale orange body. Small white head. Thick collar.

Smell - Bready. Very grainy. Lightly acidic. Lemon. Kind of a wine barrel presence.

Taste - Light white wine. Very lemony. Bready and very winey. Gets a little acetic in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Well carbonated.

Overall - This isn't very complex, but it's nice. Simple and nicely sour.

Split with rudzud, duffy, and kyle. Awesome name.

Very little fizzy head, fades quickly mostly golden color.

Nose great, dank sour lacto, big sour lemony funk, floral funk, weird like apricot fruit thing, juicy tart funk and fruit, little golden sour malt, barnyard funk.

Taste starts super sour, tart fruit, site lemony, little grassy and floral, golden sour fruit, little sour apricot and lemon, some flemmy slight milky lacto, bit acidic, dank funk. Finish is long tart sour fruit lingering, mild funk, flemmy and acidic.

Mouth is a lighter to med bod, fluffy slight creamy, decent but lighter carb, flemmy acidic.

Overall pretty nice. I really enjoyed this although others didn't as much.
