Bottled 16 June 2017: Pours clear gold color with a 2+ finger white foamy head that seemed like a cloud on top of the brew, dissipating slowly and leaving minimal spotty lacing, most of which slides down quickly.

Smells of barnyard funk, wet grass, a muddy trail and then honey, toasted grains, fruit notes like peach, lemon zest and a very acidic juice like grapefruit juice or sour orange juice. Complex for sure, but everything is muted and even with the funk, fruit and earthy notes interchanging with each whiff. I get floral notes as well after a few minutes.

Tastes of tart fruit like sour white grapes, green apple, lemon zest, red grapefruit, orange peel and then comes funk and what could be brett, along with yeast, dry flowers, peppery spices, rose pedals, honey, wet cardboard or musty bread, some more trailing funk like the smell of wet animal hair and then a dry trailing fruity aspect. It's very complicated and bounces between tart and funky, but the malty base brings sweet grainy notes it that cuts the sourness and allows more fruity flavors to come through. Hard to put my finger on everything that I taste as it's mostly what's listed above with flavors that resemble ginger ale and white wine. Very easy to drink considering the tartness at points. This is a style I need to explore more to build up my appreciation.

Had this on tap at Seymour in Greenfield. The beer had a bright, orange-yellow appearance with a thin head. The beer had a mixture of aromas of cherries, white wine, grapes that was wonderfully balanced. The taste had those aromas but it included an apple tartness. Very well carbonated and crisp. Overall, an excellent beer, especially with its aromas and flavors.

Golden appearance. Taste of apples with earthiness. Crisp feel in the mouth with solid carbonation. Would pair well with cheese or chicken. Solid finish and aftertaste. Great beer.
