Bottle shared by adnielsen, thanks bro. Lots of citrus on this, really a cool aroma actually. Never had so much citrus in a sour before. Flavor is sour but not overpowering, really easy to drink.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle poured a golden color with a ring of white head that fell away. Aroma has golden lemonade,herby orange, light yeasty funk, faint wine barrel, and a light hit of acid. Mouth feel is light and there is medium high carbonation. Flavor brings on the lemon, more citrus acidity than sour, light herbs drift in and out, and there is a bit of sweetness that seems to come from the orange side of this. Initially it smacks you a bit and there is very little wood from the barrels though I do get a snap of dry grapes. I love the fact you get such a fresh punch from the ingredients used. I have smelled the Buddha’s hand citron before (my only reference) and am pretty sure that is what gives this it’s distinct edge.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap: slight haze on a yellow pour with thin white head. Aroma is lemony with a slight bit of honey and funk...almost citronella-like. Flavor is tangy lemon with some honey sweetness and a bit of yeasty funk. A bit one dimensional but refreshing and tasty...not one I would go to often.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Library Alehouse. Clear glowing orange. Wispy foam. Nose is similar to barrel aged stillwater cellar door with fresh blood orange, key lime, sage, grapefruit, some buttery oaked chardonnay, salt and pepper seasoned grapefruit. Taste brings extensive lactic acid all encompassing, key lime, grapefruit, sour unripe peach. Mild sage and salt. Another boss sour from Almanac. Russian River sacrilegious level of quality.
