22 oz. bottle from the Half Acre tap room. Pours a reddish orange with a small white head. Aroma of red fruits, some orange, light lemon, some berry tartness. Some caramel and bread sweetness. Flavor is mildly tart, mostly berry and fruity sweetness. Lots of cherry notes. Medium bodied, mild carbonation. Finishes sweet. Not the best sour.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, thanks Aaron, hazy orange-red pour with fluffy white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, slight spice, hints of grain, slight funk and hints of lemon. Taste is a mix of slight caramel, toffee, spice, slight grass, touch of grain, hints of biscuit, slight funk and weird plastic notes, finishing bitter, slightly dry.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 ounce bottle bought at brewery. Orange color. Some citrus. Some grape. Not really a sour beer or wild ale. Not getting any of that. Ok overall, but not one of my top Half Acres.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Jerry’s. Amber-gold with modest, white head, light legs / Soft, lightly sour nose of citrus, pine, honey / Light to medium body, soft carbonation, some sweetness, mild tartness, with low fruit but solid hopping with some astringency, and lightly bitter finish / Mild flavors of orange peel, grapefruit rind, bread dough, pine, grass / Really not at all a sour ale, with just a hint of sourness. Lack enough fruit for the insufficient sourness to play off of. Drinks more like a mediocre pale. Oddly disappointing from the always reliable Half Acre.

Mild golden brew, some yeast notes, overall pretty mild, lacks a bit of complexity.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ Tap and Handle Fort Collins. Pours a bit hazy orange appearance with a thin white head. Tangy, orange citrusy goopy, spicy floral yeasty, lightly tart aroma. Hay, straw grainy, citrusy, a bit tangy flavor. Maybe a touch of tartness but not sour by any means.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at HA. Pours a deeper near red. Nose is fruity and herbal, light tartness. Minimal funk. Caramel and herbal hops. On tasting, fruity with cherries and stone fruit. Clean with a mild tartness. Definitely soft, fairly clean but the use of caramel here is really distracting.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Orange pour with a super thin head. Some fruit in the aroma. Taste is super mild. Slight sourness, but hardly noticeable. Some yeast. I’m not sure I’d even classify this as a sour.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light aroma with not much to it. Unassuming appearance. The taste is not really what I’d call a sour beer. The palate is where most of the taste comes from. Nice for summer.
