(~5 oz tiny snifter draft pour at Monk's for Zwanze Day 2022... review copied from scant notes taken on my phone)

pale, bitter, palate numbing...

what I can add from memory: somewhat tart and biting, but lines were blurred with its sedate, subtly herbal, delayed bitter hum... took my time sipping this one, trying to delineate where the funk ended and hop infusion began... cloudy in appearance and expression... I'd of course be curious to try this from a bottle decant... decent opener for the event (2037)

Pours a hazy gold, 1" white head, mild lacing. Nose is hairspray, lemon, hay, and lots of barny, wet funk. Taste follows forward with sweet, mildly tart white wine, lemon, but little expression of the funkier elements on the nose. As it warms, the sweetness and tartness of the wine continue to open, but little in the way of earthy, funkier elements. Feel is smooth with moderate carbonation, but it drinks cleanly and invitingly. Overall, however, lacking in some complexity on the palate.

2019 Vintage; Stored under okay conditions (Stable environment, very little light)
The beer pours a nice off-white head that forms at a moderate pace: not too fast but gradual. The beer itself is a clear metallic amber color that looks very good.

The smell is absolutely wonderful. It starts off with light strawberry notes while cold and warms up to let through a variety of citrus fruit notes such as grapefruit, orange, a light lemon, and hints of lime that pop in and out. The funk note is moderate with hay notes to it.

The taste is very good. It has a strong citrus fruit note upfront that consists of grapefruit and a stronger lime note than in the smell. The funk shows up mostly as a musty hay not with a acidic tartness to it.

The feel is good. It has a light to medium body and moderate carbonation. It has moderate acidity.

Overall, a delicious cuvee worth getting and holding for a few years in ideal conditions ( away from light and stable temps).
