Small white rim; clear, mildly carbonated golden beer. Peach, lactic acid, white grapes, floral & young green vegetables. Quite sour, with a very nice vinous ending. Lactic acid. The wine lagering is very obvious. Very sharp-tart, almost spritzy carbonation. Very nice, if a bit agressiver sour - but certainly not too acidic.

375 ml. green bottle. Clearly a geuze inspired blend of 1, 2 and 3 year old sours from Side Project. Pours lovely bright apple golden. You can hear the high carbonation, bubbles rising visibly very quickly and the head fizzes away. Nose is nice dried old orange peel, low cellar, lemon, nice faintly dirty and touch bright lemon funk, very low medicinal funk, far more old orange but it actually approaches lambiek funk, bright, crisp, very faint cellar. Good lively carbonation. Very tasty lemon, bright and round with Asian pear, incredibly drinkable, superbly fruity lovely funk, lemon (low esp. by USA standards), pear, orange, mandarin, tangerine, white grape, sourness is actually quite low just a small touch helping, carbonation is lively but not sharp, massively juicy. Kind of everything about this beer works. Top tier USA sour in my opinion.

Bottle. Shared with the RB Crew on the 09/05/2018 at "Himmeriget", Copenhagen. Hazy golden, almost orange, colour with a small white head. Aroma is funk, apples, oak barrels, citrus peels and hay. Taste is medium sour with intense touch of oak barrels and grapes. Tart fruity finish. Lovely aftertaste. Well balanced. Next one please!

Bottle shared by wickedestman, many thanks! Unclear yellow with a quick, white fizz. Tart green apples, grapes, oak and lemon zest. Very tart but not puckering. Short, tart finish.
