Very enjoyable beer. Pours cloudy golden color with a rapidly dissipating head. Aroma is sour with wood, basement aromas, leather, and tropical fruit. Taste is sour, but not overly so. Also a bit sweet on the finish. Not on par with La Folie, but a damn fine beer, nontheless.

Cloudy yellow with tall fizzy head. Sour fruit aroma. Taste - lemony tartness and sour apple along with some wheaty malt. Quite tart with just a bit of berry sweetness to cut it. Decent sour fruit ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a hazy golden-orange color with a one finger head of white foam. The head fades slowly over time to leave a ton of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew is strongest of a sour lemon smell mixed with other aromas of a doughiness. Along with these aromas comes some stronger smells of lychee fruit as well as a bit of a peach and pear aroma. Taste- The taste begins with a quite sour taste with some slightly doughy flavors. The sour are big of a lemon sourness mixed with a little bit of a tart green apple and vinegar flavor. Right upfront there are also some tastes of fruit, with a bunch of peach and pear and just a little bit of lychee. As the taste advances the peach and pear fade with the lychee getting stronger and stronger. The doughy flavor fades a bit as the taste moves on, with the sour getting even strong. An oaky white wine flavor then develops more toward the end, leaving one with a moderately soured and crisp wine taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel- The body of the brew is light and thin with a carbonation level that consists of a higher carbonation level. For the style the lighter body and carbonation is great with them creating a rather refreshing feel overall. Overall – A slightly more mellow sour with a nice fruity lychee and white wine like flavor. A rather decent sour overall and well worth a try.

Pours a hazy golden brown from the bomber with thin ring of bubbly white head that dissipates to leave little to no lace. Aroma of sweet fruitiness, grape almost, with tart acidity on the back end. Taste is even more of the sour acidity with a hint of woody must and sweet fruit. Really nice.

With Z, pours a rusty orange copper color with a nice head. Nose is sweet and fruity with some tartness. Taste is fruity, a mix of cherry and berries with some very light sourness at the end.....much more sweetness than tartness. Finishes on the same sweet fruity notes, dry with some light tartness. Quaff Score 7 / 10
