Bronzed body, ring of carbonation, faded head.Perhaps I’ve had a few too many Elysian pumpkin beers, but the aroma resonates or sour pumpkin flesh. In a complementary, yet similar vein, the flavor blurs on the tongue with sugar pumpkin with a tart balancing vein. Roasted and salty sunflower seed finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled during VCBW 2013 at the River Rock Casino Resort pouring a pale golden color with a small white head that leaves some thin lacing on the glass. Light aroma of grains with hints of citrus and yeast. Taste is a lemon sourness with a light sweet malty body. Light to medium bodied with light carbonation. An interesting take on the style and quite tasty.

Very solid sour beer flavor, tart and puckering. Saffron adds a nice dry quality to balance the lightly sweet malt notes, also a wonderful aroma of grass/hay.

Draft at Brouwers Sour Ale Fest 10’. Pours golden like honey. Nose is sweet honey, caramel malt, lemon, and hints of sour and wheat. The taste was honey, lemon, and some sour. This is disappointing.

Avery Sour Ale Fest. Not exactly sour or funky, but pretty interesting. Plenty of lemon citrus going through it. The flavor profile was more interesting than exactly good, but still kinda dug it. Would try it again. Seems more like a straight Belgian than a sour.
