On cask at GTMW - Pours hazy amber with a thin white head. Nose is pineapple, tropical fruit, real sweet. Taste is sweet fruit juice, with a light yeasty malt base. All tropical fruit--I don’t get the plum per se, but I’m sure it’s in there. Super smooth mouthfeel, with gentle carbonation.

By the time I worked my way around to the cask tent several firkins were already kicking. Thankfully there was plenty of this. In fact I had two samples to fully enjoy a beer that is not likely to be seen any time soon. Maybe I should give them a second chance soon.

Aroma / Appearance - Like many of the other sours around the grounds this was a yellowy cloudy color. Like a vibrant sunshine in a glass it was warming. Candi sugar, lemons, and orange slice soda sparkle in the summer air.

Flavor / Palate - Cream soda, orange peels, and an unusual mix of sweet and sour live up to billing. It took about five ounces to put a finger on the experience. The two play off each other well in a way that one trick ponies do not.

Enjoyed at GTMW 2012. Poured amber with a thick and creamy white head. The smell is sour with warm clove spice. Very smooth taste - ultra creamy - with a sweet finish and a tartness to stay true to the name.

TheAlum (5909) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 13, 2012
Cask pour at GTMW 2012 (Madison, WI). Pours a rich hazed dulled hue, good haziness, frothy whitish head atop is loose, laces small. Aromas are touches of lactic acid and pineapple, gentle dark fruit, kiss of lemon grows. A touch dougy and straw. Mellow grass, more funk and spice, dry horseblanket and brett. Initial is more restrained, pineapple and plums dance in and out. Oranges and lemon, touches of yogurt, more fruit. Apple pear, and pineapple. Bready and doughy malts. Middle is a touch sweet as backend kisses with more lactic presence, yogurt and straw, gentle plum influence. A kiss of sourness, gentle, lingers on. Mellow spice, dryness. Really nice, albeit more tame, more about a firm wild yeast dryness, dancing fruit jabs, especially pineapple work their way in and out.
