4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Longman and Eagle in Chicago. I don’t know how I’ve never had this, but I haven’t. Not too sour at all...a nice citrus fruit tartness but definitely mellowed from the barreling. Wasn’t so sour as to ruin my palate for the evening, which was nice. Balanced.

Draft - Tart white grape and some grassy notes. Hay gold with a small white head. Tart and funky grape, citrus and light vinegar notes. Tart and still pretty light.

Hoppy fruity notes hit the nose hard. Clear tan with off white thin head. Tastes of tart cherry. Lip smackingly sour. Lingers on the palette but makes you want another taste.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Golden light orange clear pour with a soapy head that quickly dissipates. Sniffs of a interesting peachy mixture of wood and fruity hop. Wow the flavor is amazing. Sour and fruity with just the hint of hops on the finish. Oily mouthfeel. What an amazing beer.

Bright gold color with no head or lacing. Aroma and flavor are sweet and citrusy with huge tartness, orange, and clean finish. Very good

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thanks to VanJamer, you lucky british-columbians! Pours an almost clear (only the slightest haze) golden with a thin white head that disappears but somewhat fast but leave good lacing. Nose is of grassy hops, oak and limoncello. Light acetic reminescence but nothing bad. Taste is reasonably tart, features some pine needles, sour fruits, big wood. This isn’t the best hoppy sour I’ve had but it is still really solid. Body is light to medium and carbonation moderate. Acidity level is refreshing. Really a lot of oak in this one, fun to drink and really wine-like. Overall a nice sour, it works for me!

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft sampler. Excellent golden orange colored sour ale with medium sweet notes around the tartness. The long sour finish is really nice. This stands up quite well against any other sour ale I have had.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark urine golden color with nearly no head. Beefy, sour nose. Soft water mouthfeel. Sour, but a little sweet underneath. Hoppiness comes through in an unassuming fashion.

Bottle drank while playing Super Mario Wii w/ Jenny. Strong amarillo hops in the aroma: pineapple, mango, slight hemp, jammy. Flavor has much more tartness of pineapple and mango, mild funk, yeasty, apricots, marmalade. Crisp and tangy. I’m not much into hoppy and sour together, but this does it perfectly.
