Straw yellow, hazy. Smell of citrus peel and tropical fruit.. mango, palatable grapefruit zest. This beer got more sour as it came to room temperature. Never been to nantucket but wouldnít mind sipping this one on the beach

Pours an entirely translucent golden straw yellow with almost no discernible carbonation. Nose is green apple and barnyard, but a bit weak, probably due to the lack of carbonation. Flavor is a wonderful green apple twang with just a bit of Belgian yeast. Unfortunately, the lack of carbonation keeps this from being a memorable beer. Maybe I just got a bad bottle.

Draft @ Novare Res. Pours a hazy yellow golden color with just a touch of foam. Aromas are fruity oak and tart citrus. On the palate its clean and refreshing with a slight touch of barrel funk mingling with some very nice lemon and lime notes that are bright and tart. Good lingering flavors on the finish.

Pours a hazy gold, no head. Aroma of really funky oak. Taste is crazy tart, funk and oak, lemon and vinegar. Pretty nice.

Sampled at an esbls tadtin. Ok a good sample. Thanks JRorie. This looks and tastes like lemonade. Somewhat sour and a bir powdery. Some more complex fruit but lemons dominate. Good stuff.

Reminds me of the sours of russian river. Light, effervescent, tart, refreshing, nice sour acidity. Fruity, mellow oak. A great one.

750ml bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours light copper color with a 1" white head that fizzed away pretty quickly, no lacing around the glass. Nose is citrus, lemons, vinous. Taste is pretty much the same. Sour! Not my thing.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from The Charleston Beer Exchange. Golden color; a fairly vigorous pour generates a one finger head that quickly fades to a thin layer. Citrusy aroma with peach and lemon leading the way. A touch floral with plenty of funky brett influence and some lavender-like herbal character. This isnít super sour going down but a mild acid burn allows this to be refreshingly tart. Itís funky and horsey overall with sour citrus fruity flavors. Thereís some oak character too but thatís secondary. A very light nail polish remover note sits far in the background but it seems to be there. The flavors seem a tad thin compared to the aroma but this is still a nice refreshing sour to enjoy on a warm day. Not worth the price but I had no real problems with this one.

750 ml bottle. Pours a highly carbonated clear gold with a decent head that dies to a thin film very quickly. The many bubbles clinging to the side of the glass either show me its carbonation level or the fact that my glass needed a better cleaning. Either way, the aroma is interesting to say the least. Very heavy with wood... White oak and an odd cedar plank kind of thing going. Grapefruit and lemon peel tartness are there as is a Brett-like barnyard funkiness. All told, Iím very eager to sip this one and hope it delivers on the promises from the nose. Drat. It doesnít. Donít get me wrong... Itís a decent sour, but it promised so much more. The flavor is a little washed out, but it has an odd and unexpected coconut edge to it that gives it a uniqueness that I find compelling. Lemony tartness is the main focus and the wood seems to sit a little in the background. The carbonation has quickly fled and it seems flat on the palate, which translates into a little bit of a boring plot development. All told, it is unique and very nice, but sadly it doesnít quite live up to the aromaís billing.
