The flavor is a little bit more tame in terms of the citrus peel profile, and, yes, far more tart than I expected it to be. There’s an immediate sharp flavor of lemon and orange peel, as well as a juicy, sour sensation of drinking fresh squeezed, unsweetened lemonade with spices added. Notes of dried leaves, ginger, tart grapes, roses, and herbs waft to mouth, producing a sensation that is delicious and complex. The finish is a little sweeter, with notes of vanilla and grapes, as well as an everlasting aftertaste of lemons, oranges, and fresh flowers. Very well carbonated, as far as the style goes - slightly syrupy and juicy enough to serve as a strong backbone for the excessive citrus within. Very well made.

Thanks to tastybeer for cracking this alongside the #3. I think this one might be better but either is worth drinking. A fine sour balances the base beer against its vinous aspects to form a memorable experience.
Aroma / Appearance - The golden semitransparent base glows with a stiff white head providing contrast. Lemons, wet blankets, citrus, and dry yeast stick in the air like a fresh load of laundry alongside musty damp books.
Flavor / Palate - Lemons, dryness, and the taste of horse blanket fuse into a tart profile. Dry and bretty this has a dash of white wine yet still is mostly sour. The citrusy finish wraps up an excellent beer with style. I hope there are more of these and that I get a chance to try them.

Pleasant lemony sour ale, from Craftshack. The citrus lends a nice complex citrus taste. Just great warm weather afternoon drinking.

On draft at Churhills Pub. A great sour punch in the palate. Strong lemon overtones with a hint of white wine. A great sour that is very enjoyable.

Bottle thanks to Raiders707. Pours hazy yellow, mild white head, very well carbonated. Nose is citrus, lemon, peach, and some straw. Taste is tart, lemon is dominant, a hint of banana, and peach, with a funky lemon finish. Great beer!
