What a great variation on the little devil. A nice touch of lactic acidity gives this beer the perfect amount of sourness. Light and crispy...a great beer to drink on a hot day.

On tap at the taproom. A hazy, pale golden beer with a small, white head. Fruity nose with a touch of sourness. Light body, dry, with a soft carbonation. The flavor has a touch of orange peel and some lemon, with pale malts and some bitterness. Short finish. A pleasant and easy drinkable beer. A bit careful maybe. 130814

jackl (6684) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Keg @ Alewife, Queens. Pours deep gold with a modest white head. The nose is bruised apple, yoghurt, sugar and lactic acid. Certainly a bit funky, cheesy. The taste is sweet bruised yellow apples, hints of cider-like fruity sweetness. Burned brown sugar and light fruit relish. Lactic indeed, funky on the palate Soft carbonation. Overall, fairly nice.

On tap at Alewife. Hazy yellow with almost no head and no lacing. Aroma of lactic acid, floral, coriander and sugar (honey?). Taste is about the same with some fruity esters. Acidic mouthfeel that dry the palate. I don’t know the base beer but it’s probably very different from this one. Lactic acid take almost all the place. Still refreshing though.
