On tap at Apex, pours a cloudy amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out light balsamic, tart red fruits, and a light earthiness. Flavour is very very tart, with sour red fruits, balsamic vinegar and light funk - low acidity but high vinegar. Works really well for what it is. Finishes almost brutally sour.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours classic sour red-brown look with minimal head, more like wine or cider. Hints of sour pucker dried fruit aroma. Super satisfying flavor. Intense California style sour, blows other American sours out of the water with just the right amount of malty berry flavors to balance out the tart punch. This is wild west coast yeast at its finest.

On tap @ Bear Republic. Pours slightly hazy dark copper with slight reddish tint and no head whatsoever. Aroma is medium caramel malt, overtaken by huge sour notes, then a light earthy funky flavor on the back. Taste is sweet crisp caramel malt, sharply sour pucker that fades mildly. Very potent flavor for a mild abv. Nice sour.

Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark translucent copper with little head. Aroma of sour reddish fruits. Med body or nearly. Flavor is quite tart and to me suggests red berries or cherries. Mouth shrinking. Finishes very dry and very tart/sour.
