The aroma is fruity and sour with sweet and medicinal notes. The appearance is cloudy orange with an average head. The taste is like the aroma with a junky garbage finish. The palate is smooth. Overall a beer only a sour beer lover could stand.

Doodler (312) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 9, 2010
750 ml. Popped open with a shotgun bang and a mild gusher. Beautiful color - creamy gold with a tangy nose, Fizzy white head that quickly dissipates. Nicely dry on the front end, a bit of funky apricots and vanilla on the back. A slightly fruity, nicely carbed brewski through and through. Very pleasant.....even my wife liked it. Superb job again by the CB/Raccoon gang....a great summer ale.

EricE (1368) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - JUL 4, 2010
Bottle shared by brainlair. Mostly orange hazy pour with a thin white head. Fruity, sour aroma. I guess its apricot, but I can’t say I really know what an apricot smells or tastes like. A bit of funk on on the nose. Moderately sour with lots of fruit. Some citrus and lemongrass. Light bitter, woody funk finish. Good sour.
