Witicus Double Rye Ale aged in a retired wine barrel from Llano Estacado and the natural flora from their West Texas vineyards. The combination of tart acidity, citrus and chamomile culminates in a blend of tropical fruit notes, pineapple and hints of vanilla.

On tap at Freetail. Hazy yellow with light creamy white head. Aroma is fruit punch and vanilla with a touch of sour. Medium carbonation. Flavor is pineapple, vanilla and lemon. A little sour and a little sweet...a perfect balance. Very refreshing and enjoyable! My favorite sour at Freetail so far!

Leighton (15306) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle shared during the satellite Travlr 10K tasting at CBC Clerkenwell - London. Pours clear gold with a creamy, white head. The aroma holds tangy citrus and honey. Medium sweet flavor with rich sour fruits, strong acetic burn, booze, light raspberry. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sharp sour finish with some salty sweat, a mix of acetic and booze burn, nips of acetone, some old berries, wood. Aggressive. Not very well balanced; unrefined. Lacks class and grace.

Scopey (10026) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2014 Bottle thanks to Thomas. It pours cloudy orange with a small white head. The nose is big wood, earth, musty, damp oak, leaf, vanilla and marshmallow. The taste is crisp, tart, kumquat, orange peel, tangerine, sherbet, light acidity, wood, good mouth-pucker and white wine with a crisp, tart finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Pretty delicious, but the acidity gets to you after a while.

Bomber to taster at NatiFest (shared by alexsdad06). Looks solid; a transparent golden orange with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells tart, funky, fruity, and vinous with a touch of spice. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.
