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.

Pours a cloudy yellow, ring of thin head. Nose is dominated by citrus zest, vinegar. Taste explodes with acidity and wine flavors: lemonade, vinho verde, oak and chardonnay. Lots of lemon and some funk and wood for balance. Enjoyable for sure.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour and citrus aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & citrus flavor with a medium to heavy citrus & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very very citrus forward aroma and flavor though still very Oaky and winery like the others. Core fruit forward than any of the berry versions, though, and it works. Dry and funky, moderately acidic. Good stuff.

375 ml bottle shared with the Tmoney99. Pours a clear yellow golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have tart/sour citrus, orange, some lemon, mild funk, nice wine barrel character, wood, soft at the finish. I liked the others better than this. Still good.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2015 375mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a hazy golden with a medium white head. Nose is dominated by loads of citrus fruits, lemons especially and a touch of orange, with oak and maybe a subtle hint of white wine. Very complex, hugely citric but in a good way and only too drinkable. Excellent stuff.

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!
