Poured a yellow color with aromas of citrus, light wine, some sourness, some light wet wood, and some funk. Flavors are nice citrus and sour up front with some light wine in the back end, light and refreshing. Could drink this all day, sad I only have one bottle.

Pours clear blonde, white head fades instantly. Smell is sharply sour, some malty tones as well, but no sweetness. Taste is dry, sharp sourness, citrussy tones are there, but not in an overly intense way, not per se much more than other sour beers might have without the adding citrus fruits. No oranges or wine notes to be found... It does feel wattery, and to high on carbo though. Not of the same quality as some other sours these guys did..,

Bottle as pictured. Poured a golden yellow, some carbonation. Couldn’t really distinguish any fruits in particular and I’m not really sure what a citron tastes like. Nice tart citrus flavor but not overly puckering. Really a balanced sour beer.

you can definitely tell Almanac’s sours apart from others - they have a liquid sourdough thing going on in addition to the winey twang and citrus, and like all the others, quite good.

Clear bright gold yellow. Nose of lemon and light wheat. Crisp with light lemon tartness. Was great with sushi, but second fiddle to the Rare Barrel Soliloquy.
