Tumbler showing pale gold with half a finger of clean white foam.

The nose shows intensely tart notes of Brett and light lemon.

The palate is well carbonated and light bodied. Highly tart with a light malt backbone and mostly mandarin oranges with hints of Brett.

Bottle - Nice sour grassy notes and a touch of funk. Cloudy yellow gold with a small white head. Light grassy bitterness, good sourness and a bit of an acidic finish. Nice.

Draft at Lupolo, 1/7/15. It pours a clear gold orange, white head and average lace. Fruity, vinous, and earthy. Tart and somewhat dry. Lingering tart, funkiness sticks around through the end palate. Really quite good.
