My favorite in this series, because the fruitiness is really aggressive and distinctly citrusy. I could drink this for days. Light tartness, with a refreshing lemon zesty character and some slight bitterness in the finish. Excellent, excellent beer.

This might be the strongest, most pronounced flavor in a beer I’ve ever experienced. The sour starts with the aroma, definitely a strong, dry citrus smell that did not prepare me for the nuclear sour that followed. An explosion of tannic citrus mouth pucker. Not sure I would order another, but an interesting one off experience.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Small, white head over clear orange beer; end of bottle deposit loosening. Vinous, oranges & lactic acid, preserved citrus. Citrus, lemons, faint sweetness (as dates?). Lipsmacking sourness, but not really much depth. Dry, dry-out effect, finish is slighlty empty. Quite nice, but the nose promised much more complexity than it really offers. Many thanks to M & L V!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Semi-clear, yellow-ish body with a lightly foamy white collar that never reaches full head status. Aroma of sour lemons, must, generic citrus, some cotton funk, a bit of white grape, & a strong, dripping wet oak presence in the back-end. Lots of lemon on the palate. Lemon juice, light floral & herbal tones almost edging towards verbena but not quite getting there. Tart citrus flesh, lacto yeast, damp hay bale funk, & a touch of musty wood in the aftertaste. Light, sharp body, thin & crisp. Another solid sour ale in the Almanac series.

Decent clarity. Brown orange color. The nose is very clean. Nice orange and clove with a touch of lemon. This is really good. It’s like drinking beer lemonade with some sort of lime and OJ finish. Mineral taste present. Really nice body.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to the local group for sharing. Pours a cloudy orange color with a small foamy ring. Aroma is dominated by lemons and black pepper. Taste is the same with some light brett, flowers, and white wine. Moderately sour. Enjoyable sour.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of citrus, fruit, herbal notes, lemon peel, and a touch of grass. It pours a transparent golden-orange with a small white head that quickly fades to a thick ring. The flavor starts with a a quick dose of citrus and light spur fruit. The finish has light-moderate lemon, faint herbal notes, and white wine. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours hazy and yellow with a small, wispy, white head. Good retention. The aroma features a merger of vanilla, citrus peels and toasted oak. Medium to full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. The flavor is sour and citrusy. The finish is short, crisp and tart. Big thanks to newcigarz for sharing this delight!
