A: Poured into a Duvel tulip to a clear and bright gold topped by a dense and rocky three finger head with excellent retention and lacing
S: Smells of light sourness, funk, and oak
T: Taste is bright tartness up front that doesn't quite reach sour with some funk and oak. A little fruity at times as well with some slight chalkyness. It also has some slight bready malt going on too. Swallow is more tartness with some lingering yeasty funk and a little more oak.
M: This beer is fairly light but not watery with nice carbonation that's just slightly prickly with a dry finish
O: Overall this is a pretty nice beer. It isn't super sour and has a nice pleasant tartness. Decent complexity and flavors as well keep this one interesting throughout the drink. Overall worth a try but not really worth seeking out if you like your sours on the strong side.

Well-made beer. Blend of lambic and golden ale. Decent head but dissipated over time. Nice lambic undertones with golden ale malty qualities. Slight unusual perfume-like taste in the finish.

Very under-rated IMHO. Tastes very much like something SARA might do - a la Bright Sea Blonde, a funked up Belgian Blonde. Pour is beautiful, abundant head, golden / copper hued, clear and vibrant. Smells of apples, hay, lemon zest, wildflower, biscuity malt. Flavor is more of the same - what it lacks in depth it makes up for in vivacity. Bright funky cider flavors with a slight barnyard. Quencing. Crisp finish, tart more than acidic. The rare beer where I feel it's more than the sum of its parts.
