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.

On draft at Beer Revolution. Wow, this was one interesting beer. It pours a clear golden yellow with a small white head. The aroma is surprisingly leafy and floral with the citrons and lemon coming through strong with perfume. Even more so in the flavor. Clean with lots of sour, floral lemons and a bit of sweeter orange notes coming mid palate. The finish is clean with more floral perfume and lemon/orange fruit. It has a fuller mouthfeel than #3, but still pretty light. Very little funk. Good balance. Can’t wait to try this one again.
