Drank 7/20/19 @ the Yarchives; poured from the bottle.

This was a pleasant, fruit forward treat; it didn't have a ton of depth as some of the Funk Factory beers can have, but it made up for that with an easy-to-quaff disposition. Great summer beer.

It poured a bright translucent effervescent peach color with a white foamy head that disappeared quickly. No sediment. A very beautiful and colorful beer without a doubt. At the nose, there is very heavy funk and horse notes. Juicy fruit tartness comes through with notes of peach. Really hard to put words into describing the aroma, it’s definitely untamed and wild; pushing forward a true fruit lambic beer. The taste incredibly juicy with tons of peach and nectarines - I’m well aware currants were added, not peaches. Perfectly sour and tart with the sweet fruit balancing out the acidity. Really surprised with the impressive notes of pitted fruits. It was light bodied in the mouth. My palate kept me wanting one sip after the other. Overall: this is an exceptional beer. I have very limited knowledge of that true lambic tradition, but regardless, this. Ever exceeded my expectations.

Definitely my favorite beer from Funk Factory. Appearance is golden. The smell is lemon, oak and funk. Taste follows the same with lemon, oak and even more funk. Mouth is a tad undercarbed but just about perfect. Funk Factory is putting out amazing sours that are as close to authentic belgian lambics as any brewery in the states.

A- Lighter golden-blonde body, fair amount of orange hue, one finger white head, minimal retention time, no lacing.

S- Rich funky aromas, lemon zest, oak, white grape must, mild fruity sweetness presumably from the currants. This is very complex, easily the most complex of the FFG beers produced thus far. Fairly wheat-forward and tart-smelling. A mild amount of vinegar.

F- A fair bit of wet cheese, good dose of barrel oak, lemon zest, fair amount of white grape-like flavour mixed in with some sweetness, easily the funkiest publicly released offering from this brewery to date. The cheesy funk is quite nice and works well in this. Nice complexity and in a strange way, this is the closest brew they've released to a quality Belgian fruit lambic.

M- Medium bodied, a bit slick as befitting the house profile, good carbonation, nice complexity that isn't difficult to drink despite being fairly tart.

O- With the complexity and funk, this is the best publicly-released FFG beer that I've had so far, though I haven't had the apricot or cognac barrel-aged ones. Definitely seek this out without prejudice. This brewery is on the rise and continues to release new lambics that end up being better than the previous release. I look forward to drinking more.
