750ml bottle. 1/18/17 bottle date. Appearance: Clear golden color with a pillowy white head and decent lacing Aroma: Strong funky brettanomyces character up front, lead by hay and horse blanket. A touch off grass, then the acidity pops up in the background, with apple cider vinegar notes. Taste: Starts with a light crackery malt sweetness before a bracing acidic tartness and bitterness, lemon peel, and light brett funk. Bready maltiness and brett notes emerge retronasally. Even some blue cheese Mouthfeel: Fairly light bodied with a high carbonation Finish: Dry and surprisingly bitter, with a lingering acidic lemon tartness. Funky blue cheese is there retronasally. Overall: An amazingly complex beer. Brettanomyces dominates the aroma, and the flavor profile shows off the bracingly tart acidity. A surprising amount of bitterness here and the lemon peel like acidic bitterness/tartness counterbalances throughout. Very crisp

i am not a sour fan, which is probably why I can not appreciate this but it is just not for me. super light in look and feel, yet it tastes like I am sucking on a lemon.
