3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from tasting. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is tart, citrus, wood, wheat, with light spicy and funky notes. The flavor has decent citrus with some tart character, wheat, light spices, mild funk. This is not a big sour, actually more wild and very easy to drink.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a clear bright golden color ale with a large white foamy head with good retention but minimal lacing. Aroma consists of sour and tart notes with some light oak also perceptible. Taste is also dominated by tart notes with some sour notes and oak also perceptible and well balanced acidity which is not overly dominant. Body is about average with good carbonation. Nothing spectacular about his beer but well brewed overall with good balance and limited acidity.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a hazy orange gold with no head. Aroma of funk, oak vinegar and citrus. Taste is funky and sour with oak up front but finishes fruity citrus and peaches. Very nice, better than the raspberry variant.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Citric, grassy on the palate with plenty more lemon zest in the nose. Tangy, tart, delicious, imminently sessionable. More lactic than most of its American sour brethren. Great base for the fruited versions, and Ananke itself should age nicely.
