In honesty this one most of been infected...so take it for what it's worth. Foggy orange color. Super tart and green apple. Little to no hop distinction. Maybe I'll try and rate some other time. Of course, maybe not.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Snowy white head on a foggy, light oaken beer. Squat twistoff 12oz bottle with a label that looks like an altar scene from Beneath the Planet of the Apes. Chimp on the cap. Pickle-y, apricot malt and thoroughly-brewed hop aroma. Biscuity, golden raisins, not aggressively bitter, a little lemon zip. Definitely wouldn’t be confused with IPA. Medium mouthfeel, brushy carbonation. Pretty refeshing, a little on the bland side, a good picnic beer. Thanks to PorterPounder for schlepping this back for me from Georgia.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: APR 23, 2014 12 oz bottle dated 2014 and delivered by the distributor yesterday.
Durable bone-colored head over an amber body.
Fruity aroma with an off-note. Likewise, the flavor, though modestly pleasing, is rather odd with a mildly tart note of lemons and unripe apricots.
O: strongly suspect infected bottle. Will revisit with another.
Seems a bit better but stil wierd, with a surprising and unmistakable tartness.
revisited with a fresh 12 oz bottle date notched Feb. 2014 on 23 April 2014.
Ratings remain appropriate as is.

Albany, Ga. - Warehouse Package Store - 12 oz bottle. Hazy medium gold pour, pillowy, snow white head with nice lacing. Aroma is sour and funky and has just a hint of vinegar. Solid flavor with some doughy notes, a hint of peach, some light citrus bitterness. Thickish mouthfeel. Does in a pinch.

Draft at brewery 11/13/13-Pours amberish with a decent head. Aroma of hops and malt. Taste of the same. This light to medium bodied brew was not bad bud was lacking something that I couldn’t put my finger on.
