3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2012 Pours light brown dark orange with a very thin white head. Nose is lemon peel, coriander, vinegar, rose pedals and apples. Taste is complex. A wave of fluctuating bitter and sweet with an ever present sour through it all. Mouthfeel is soft and sticky, a bit like syrup addition, body is heavy and the finish is long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance is a modest off-white head that settled to an island/ring after a bit, some lace, and a hazy orange amber color. Aroma is yeast, fruit, spice, malt, slight barnyard. Body is just exactly right and hides the alcohol well. Finish is easy and alcohol is hidden. Fairly drinkable for this style of brew.

bottle, from Bottle Revolution RDU, I think, maybe Traingle Wine, they both had it. good aroma, raisin, chardonnay barrel, vinegar. clean golden orange color, not much head, no lace. medium sourness in flavor, medium body, smooth mouthfeel, tart finish, that’s nice. good tart bite on finish. easy to drink for 10%. expensive, but cheaper than flying to Portland.

HMOG 2015. Interesting fruit combo coming together behind cascades typical bigger body malt back bone on their sours. Light and subtle fruit, slight sweetness from the figs. Touch of wine and oak.
