Pale golden, not a ton of color from the fruit. Sharply sour on the nose with a solid whiff of banyard. Taste less funk, and more straight up lactic sour. A touch syrupy and sweet in the mouth even though this is unsweetened.

Overall an interesting beer, but nothing I would try again

Pours straw gold with a foamy bubbly head- less from carbonation than the agitation whole pouring. Smells like straight fruit vinegar, a bit off-putting. Taste is punishingly sour green apple notes at first, rounded out by sweet light grain, kiwi, lime, and then a burst of fresh strawberry essence hangs on the palate for quite some time. Feels abrasive from the acidity at first, but then pleasantly creamy. Solid fruit lambic.
