NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 23, 2010
Somehow neglected to rate previously. Bottle from a trade a ways back. Pours a blondish orange, hazy. Solid carbonation and frothy head. Nose of lemons, white wine, herbs and spice. Sour. Taste is pretty solid, rich body, no alcohol jumps through, but I draw out plenty of esters behind the brash sourness. Excellent.
