3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl bottle on 2/5/2008. Faintly hazy bright gold pour with a medium, but fading, white head with little lace. Sour citrus aroma with a bit of funkiness to it as well. Notes of honey and green apples add to the mix. Lots of effervescence from the medium body, quite acidic, leaving a squeaky clean palate. Sour fruity flavors take over, with just a hint of underlying sweetness. Very refreshing dry finish.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a palate cleanser. We have this in bottles here at the SharpEdge Creekhouse. Pours a hazy yellow gold with a thin long lasting white head. Very very tart and dry. Some earthy undertones are picked up. I love sour ales.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
11.2 oz bottle. Sour smell, sour taste. Not to my liking and not what I expected. The oak flavor is very prominent under all that sourness and there is no hint of the 7.3 abv. Didn’t realize this is a sour ale. I do realize now I don’t care for sour ales!
