Appearance: hazy pale gold with two fingers of fluffy ivory head, excellent retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: complex, horseblankety funk, green apple, oak, leather, tobacco. (9/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate funky tart, low bitter, hint of brine. (9/10) Palate: medium-light body, lively carbonation, dry funky tart finish. (5/5)

Been a long time since I had one of these, so I figured I’d re-review it prior to doing its special version that’ll follow. And yeah, it’s pretty much exactly how I remember it. To hell with all those kettle sours everybody and their dog is doing these days – this is how you do a sour beer. (18/20)
