Pours a slightly hazy golden color, topped witha couple of fingers of white head that immediately disappears. Lots of bubbles in there.
The aroma is soury, between new wine and cider.
The taste is quite sharp, soury and dry.
Don't really like it, sorry.

Poured From a 750ml bottle. *This is my first true sour*

Pours a light hazy light orange, almost yellow or golden, with a decent amount of off-white, fluffy head. Very carbonated.

Smells funky at first. I let it sit for a few minutes before smelling again to allow some of the funk to blow off. Smells of hay, barnyard, farty, musty, notes of champagne or white wine barrels.

Tastes very similar to how it smells. SUPER dry. Steals all the moisture in your mouth.

Mouth feel is great. Very light and heavily carbonated, almost like drinking a sparkling white wine.

Overall the beer was quite an experience. At taste and smell I was fearful I wouldn't like it, but like all great things, it grew on me as I sipped it, and maybe as it opened up a bit.
