Draft. Clear orange pour, off white head. Huge sweet orange aroma and very sour. Nail polish remover, white vinegar, orange, light citrus, and quite sweet. This one is a little over the top, cloying sweet, and the sourness hurts the teeth.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear orange sort of color with a white head. Nose has a bit of a sweet/sour thing going on. Sweet citrus along with a light tartness, candied orange peel. A light spice note, some tangerine, mild oak, and malt sweetness. A hint of nail polish remover on the back end. The flavor is somewhat sour, but also decently sweet. Candied citrus peel, orange, tangerine, and mild grapefruit. There is some malt sweetness, mild oak, and a hint of spice. Not bad.

poured from tap into a tulip. Poured from one of their live barrels and pours a nice clear color with a good head.
Very nice and tart on the nose. There is a definite sourness to this with aromas of funk, orange peels, spice and some tart citrus tones.
Delicious and wonderful medium body with a real racy tart quality to it. Well balanced with very good flavors of orange peels, spices, and funky flavors.
Another high quality sour from cascade. The oranges really do come through on both the flavor and aromas.
