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.

Pretty sure this is the one I had. Hazy light tan. Fresh, lemony, vinous...really interesting nose. Tastes lemony, a bit footy yeast, and a hint of lemon. The taste isn’t as clean as the nose, but there’s a nice tartness late that aims ambitious.

A- Pours a beautiful tangerine color with an off white head that sticks around for quite a while.
S- Funky, sour, citrus, lemon rind.
T- Floral citrus, lemon rind, wheat, a hint of sourness up front and on the back end.
M- Medium bodied with ample carbonation.
D- I really enjoyed this beer. The floral aspect of the citrus was a little powerful for me and i’m interested to see if that will drop out with age.

Pour is clear golden yellow with a thin tight white head. Nose is oaky, lemon, light phenol. Citrus doesn’t really shine, a bit tannic. Taste is more citrusy, fleshy ripe orange. Oak comes in after, light sourness, lacto. Lemon comes in at the back of the palate, strong carbonation and dry finish. Lingering tartness and tannin. Red wine starts to come out more as it warms.

Bottle. All around sour, all citrus nose, sour taste, it’s mostly lemon that i get from it. Nice citrus sour ale but that is all that it really has to offer.

Bottle shared thanks to cpetrone. Huge lemon citronella aroma, tastes sweet and tart. Medium light carb and well balanced. One of my favorites.

Bottle shared by Jack. Another cool sour. I found this one to be a little on the sharp side with the lemon and bright citrus flavors produced by the fruits. I normally love all of these fruits on their own, but when teemed with the beer and lactic sourness it becomes a little too much for me. Still well done, and maybe it would get much better with a little age.

Sampled in a small bottle. A big time citrus brew. The sour is nicely put together. The Meyer lemon flavor is rich and long lasting. Great brew.
