On tap @ Noble Fir. Pours cloudy pale golden. Nose is strong floral aroma with a hint of hops. Taste is tart, crisp, and oaky with biscuit malt flavor. Finish is hoppy, tart, and sour. Not bad. These guys have obviously mastered sours so cool to see them take on traditional styles.

Draft at elliott bay pizza. Pours a cloudy bright orange golden amber. Dense creamy white head that goes away, leaving plenty of lace. Mild bready nose. Creamy medium body with a very mild caramel mid palate and a sweetish blood orange finish. Needs some aromatics but great flavor profile.

hazed gold. light pungent but soapy hop aromatics with sweet honey-accented malt, but has a creamed corn note that’s hard to shake. wet texture, rounded, syrupy body. medium bitterness doesn’t balance the strong sweetness from unfermentables. onion and garlic hop flavors are also unpleasant.
