Great 12-oz bottle. Foggy, maple blonde-brown beer, not much head. Good sour, fruity/biotic aroma. Sour, but doesn’t make your glands tingly behind your jaw. medium body, loses CO2. Kind of one-note. Thanks to Lance @ Proof.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, generously brought across the country by GT2. Thanks buddy. This was a nice, easy drinking, sour red/brown, definitely more in the American style (read: less woody, and a tad more funky). Pretty clean palate with notes of sour cherry, other red fruits, and funky yeast. Nice stuff if not super complex.

From the bottle. Nose is of funk and cherries. Taste is cherries and sour, with just the right carbonation.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle courtesy of hamilton23. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is big tartness- citrus, stone fruit, vinous fruit, and some slight cherry. Flavor is similar with stone fruit, citrus, tartness, vinous character, and cherries. So much going on inside this one sour. Light to medium in body and one to ponder, definitely.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Wheaty, earthy, yeast smell, the taste is sour not ripe cherry, citrus, the color is a dull orange. This is a good sour not on the par of some of Russian River’s sours but its really good. Price point is a little too high, I paid $10 for a 12 oz!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy orange. Tart funk on the aroma. The taste is lighter than I expected on the sourness and cherry but, is still great. There's a sweet juicy aspect too. Nice bitter, tart notes. The sour feel fades quickly in the mouthfeel.
