On tap at freetail. Pours a hazy light gold with a white head that starts at the edges and remains. Aroma has notes of tropical fruits and a light tartness backed by a hint of sweetness. Flavor starts tart with tropical fruit and mellows to a slight tartness and sweet grain. Very drinkable.

Had on tap at Freetail .. . now this is a quality sour ale!! .. . pours a shimmering gold with low foam .. . amazing tartness, unique and fun .. . Don’t listen to the pussies who say this is to sour, this is assertive, clean, and refined, and ultimately complex!.. . i can’t wait til this goes into bottles, when it does i’m hiring a school bus and all my friends and neighbors will be first in line so i can have all the bottles!!!.. . if this is put in caged 750’s and sold in belgium, this would be a world beater!! ..as long as i look happy doing it, people just think i’m senile...

Mora2000 (5695) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 21, 2011
On tap at Freetail during the bottle release of Woodicus and Bandito. One of five sours on tap. The beer pours a golden yellow color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the wheat with some sour lemon notes mixed in. The flavor is similar, with a few other notes. I get a lot of lemon and wheat notes, but I also get some juicy tart cherries. The beer is very dry and very drinkable. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice sour beer from a great brewpub.

(Draught) clear, very very pale yellow with no head at all. Nose of wet wood, tangerine, yogurt, fresh herbs and sweet fruit. Taste is watery, tart, chewable vitamins, refreshing, tangerine, tangy, and light in body.

Cavie (3795) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - FEB 12, 2011
Tap at the pub. Pours a fairly clear golden color with very little head.  Aroma is sour fruit with a slight touch of vinegar. Lots of sour notes here. Flavor is quite tart an puckering sour. Some fruity flavor with a tingle left on the palate. After the initial shock of sour it starts to ease up a bit. Different from several other sours I’ve had.
