COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Citrus and beer have always made a great pair, ever since the first lemon wedge was added to a cold wheat beer. Here we expand on that tradition in a new way, melding the intensely aromatic zest of Buddha’s Hand citrons with the bracing tartness of Bergamot oranges in a sour blonde ale aged in wine barrels. Pair with sushi or flakey white fish or contrast with earthy roasted root vegetables.

Pours hazy yellow quirky nose but excellent orange lemon tartness. Such a delicious refreshing golden citrus tart beer. I could drink this every day.

GlassBrass440 (251) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 28, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy neon yellow with no head. Funky up front aromas merge and give way to large amounts of citrus. Lemons and oranges. Oak aromas keep it grounded. Intensely dry and tart citrus flavours. Almost like biting into a lemon. A barnyard note hits the mid palate before returning to a milder citrus sour bite. The finish is dry and short.

Draft at ebp. Pours a cloudy pale orange with a loose creamy white head. Big tangy nectarine and mandarin nose. Juicy and intense. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Tangy, juicy mid palate with puckering bursts of nectarine and mandarin. Gorgeously flavorful. Long tart finish.

Thanks to Bytemesis (iou a shipment)! This 2014 vintage bottle poured a yellow orange with a very fizzy white head that dissipated quickly. Aromas of Brett, citrus, lemon. Flavor is tart and crisp. Tasty.

DYCSoccer17 (3461) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle purchased at The Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma has a bit of a floral, cheesy character present. Light acidity and fun with a little melon aromatics. Transparent golden body with a medium, fairly strong white head present. Starts with a sweet, lightly acidic and citrus lemon flavor. Nice biscuity maltiness in the middle. Finishes with mild to moderate tartness. This is really well balanced and not too crazy sour. This is enjoyable.

gEUS (1395) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2015 375 ml bottle at home. Pours clear yellow to golden, fine bubbly white head, dissapearing quickly. Fresh aromatic sherry alike nose, with touches of Chardonnay. low on citrus, rather high on lacto notes. Very light body, very tart and light acidic undertone, getting fuller to the end. Dry tart finish. Taste is a bit like the spice of American saisons, and yoghurt. Interesting beer
