750 ml bottle picked up at Zipps in Minneapolis by my Dad, recommended by Tyler. Pour is hazy golden orange with a 1/2 inch white head. Decent lacing is left behind as the head retreats. Aroma is tart, sour and musty. Tartness is a lemon tartness. Sour is cherries, very fresh cherries. Taste is sour tart lemon, with cherries adding a nice acidic edge. Very big citrus rind in the finish. Woodiness and earthiness are present in the aftertaste. Not overpowering at all nicely blended and superbly balanced. Soft and delicate. The finish is clean and really delicate. This was certainly the beer of the day at the csbosox tasting. Thanks for recommending this one Tyler, it was great.

Nice amberish brew, bit of foam, apple juice-like. Aroma is nicely acidic, sour and autumny. Taste is the same, very nicely soured, hints of bitterness coming from fermentation I guess. I am really enjoying this, good stuff.

Bad ass blend here,. Not overtly lip suckering, just very satisfying. Light spritz. Pear, straw, melon, funk, apple.

Bottle from Tanakaya shared. Lovely tart nose with apple, gooseberry, lime and oak all working together well. Tart on the palate with a well-rounded mouthfeel and a medium body. Good carbonation with an above average tart finish. Very quaffable. Great stuff!
