Vista Brewing Velo de Flor
What the brewers say
"Uses a mixture of seven cultures to mimic the traditional spontaneous fermentations of southern Belgium."
What our panel thought
"An interesting mélange of spicy/peppery phenols and traditional barnyard funk coupled with some gentle yet present oak-derived vanilla and caramel notes. More spicy and funky than tart or sour."
What our editors thought
"A strong tannic note defines the nose with notes of vanilla and oak. Reminiscent of a wild cider—effervescent and light. Precious little (aged) hops character leaves us looking for personality."
