4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On draft at the 2013 SF beer week opening celebration. It pours a pale yellow/orange with an off white head. The aroma is grapefruit sour, mild musty hay funk. Peachy with hint of white vinegar. The flavor is clean grapefruit sour with hints of pepper and white vinegar. A little hay, but mostly clean grapefruit, sour tart goodness. Yummers!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Jupiter Sour Sunday. Pours cloudy orange with a thin white head and a cheese aroma (in a good way). There is a sour fruit flavor that lingers on the palate and a nice yeast presence.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft release for SF Beer Week.. Solid. More sweet red fruit nuances then the Reserve #2. Tart red fruit, likely influence if the Pinot Noir barrel. I think it might be a bit fuller bodied then #2 also. A solid release from Almanac.

On tap. Cloudy yellowish brown with no head. Sour green apple, plum, grape, funky wine barrel aroma and taste with some fantastic tart fruit flavors and some nice candy sugar notes. Very good.
