Aroma is pomegranite forward but not sweet. Great wheat tones. Pours dull lavender with great hazy sour. Taste is great with pomegranate forward but not overly sweet. Well balanced and a delight to drink. Nice wheat and yeast notes compliment this tamed fruit. Good stuff.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy brown and rust coloured body with a very thin tan head and a burnt orange glow - very nice. Aroma of sour grapes, cherries, raspberries, yeast, lemons and a bunch of passionfruit - very nice and super mouth watering. Medium-bodied; Assertive yeast up front with oodles of sour qualities most of them related to fruits - but all are very nice. Aftertaste shows a hint of light malt, no carbonation or movement at all with a pungent sour note and a subdued sweetness. Overall, one of the better sour beers that I’ve had in a long time, and one that should be sampled by everyone, if you can find it! I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 11-December-2012 for US$19.25 sampled at home in Washington on 23-June-2013.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep reddish amber from the bottle into tulip. Big creamy off white head that retains a bit for a sour. Big sour notes with tropical fruits, lots of cherries, and vinegar. BIG sour start, with lots of fruit. Mellows as it goes down without much lingering on the palate. Dry start to finish. Light and effervescent. A true sour first beer. Good stuff.
