Draft at the Brewery, 2014 vintage. Pours a clear golden color, small amount of white head. Aroma citrus, tangerine, some lacto but not overwhelming, body slightly lively, some tartness to finish. Just a really well balanced sour, very nice.

Bottle. Off the menu offering from Bruce at that crazy mega tasting. It pours deep golden-orange with a small white head. The nose is soft, earthy, toasty, sherbet, tangy orange, sour candy and hay. The taste is crisp, tart, sour peach, apricot, old fashioned lemonade, oak, vinous notes, some acidity and minerals with a dry, tart finish. Nice sherbet character. Crisp, tart and tasty.

Bottle at the Big Friday Brokeback Tasting, massive thanks to Bruce once again for digging more good stuff out that wasn’t on the list and keeping my OR ticks going - 03/01/14.
Murky orange amber with little in the way of a head or covering.
Nose is tarte citric fruit, damp hay, orange pith, bittern apricot, straw, musty.
Taste comprises orange pith, dank tropical notes, straw, light sweat, dried apricot, hint of alcohol peeping through.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry closure.
Decent sour but not a top draw offering.

Another off the list bottle at this big ass tasting. Cheers Bruce! Pours hazy golden with a dense white head. Nose is very tangy and tarty, full of sourness, touch sugary, tropical fruit forward. Taste is very tropical and full of lemon rind. A good tanginess to it. Very clean and quaffable. Solid as
