pour is is clear golden in color with tight off white head. Nose is tannic and sweet. Lots of white wine barrel, peaches and fruity. Taste is a bit less tannic, still nice fruity soft peach and gentle sourness in the finish. Still seems to have a light Chardonnay barrel taste but not as present in the taste. Body is soft, lighter carbonation, very clean and airy.

Leighton (13620) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2012
Tap at The Pony Bar HK, NYC. Pours pale, cloudy yellow with a slight, creamy white head. Nose is all tart, citric lemon, faint wheat. Light to medium sweet flavor with an intense, biting sourness, more acidic lemon, faint grass. Light bodied with fine, zippy carbonation. Mouth-puckeringly sour finish, plenty more tart lemon juice, very dubtle dough and butter, a bit of lactic tang, plenty of lingering sour notes. Excellent.

jackl (5503) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Bottle from Harvest Wines. Pours a hazy light golden color with a medium white head. The nose is bright sugary mango and pineapple, some funky yeast and light tartness. The taste is lightly tart pineapple juice, some wood, sugary tanginess and cheese. Light body, very drinkable. Overall, highly enjoyable. This is definitely the best Cisco beer I’ve had.

blklab2007 (2081) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 16, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2012 Bottle poured a bright golden color with a thin covering of white head that fell right off. Aroma is juicy, white grape, peach, lemon, light wood, and light acidity. Mouth feel is light and there is medium low carbonation. Flavor gets a bit more acidity, lemon, peach, wheat, brett, oak, and it dries out into the finish. Very drinkable having such low alcohol.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JUN 2, 2012
(750 ml from Rockland Foodservice) Hazy light yellow-gold, thin layer of off-white head, large, active bubbles. Vibrant aroma of oak, citrus and sour. Mouthfeel medium-full, vibrant carbonation, smooth. Flavor of oak, lemony-citrus and sour. Only light-moderate acidity. Lower ABV and milder acidity make this a very pleasant and drinkable sour.

madvike (3072) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Bottle from TPatuto...thanks Tom! - Pours yellow and clear, with a thin ring of off-white head. Smells of nice, oaky tartness, vinegar, white grape, apple, and pear. Taste is clean vinegar tartness with mellow oak and white grape. There’s a sharper oak in the finish, but still pretty mellow. Good carbonation and slick. Great stuff.

750mL c&c. From DeVinos on U St for about $18. Pours hazed straw with huge effervescence and a moderate white head leaving soapy lace. Rich, funky nose with heavy, annoying phenols masking rich biscuit, dough, pineapple, and blood orange. As it warms and decants and gains more dregs from the bottle, there is more mango, pineapple, and clean chardonnay funk with muted vanilla. Taste is quite citric and super fruit acid tangy with massive lemon, lime, blood orange, and medium white grapefruit. Tangy, sour, leathery palate. Very good. Fuller lacing. Richer pineapple sorbet as it warms. All encompassing sour palate. Easy 4.0. No acetic. Very refreshing. Like chugging pineapple limeade. Oh yeah. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
