A nice light golden color with a light sweet, floral orange peel nose. This was a very easy driinking light fruity beer. Great for summer.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 18, 2007
Pours a cloudy golden orange with a small lively head and nice lacing. Effervescent tart champagne nose and flavor with hints of cherry, orange rind, and vitamin C chewable tablets. Finishes with a sour oak twist and a dry mouthfeel. Very nice beer.

JoeinDahlem (1338) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - APR 17, 2007
Tasted from 33 cL at Waregemse Bierhappening. Old gold color with no lasting head. Aroma is faint but sour. Flavor is tart and dry with grapefruit notes, although maybe a touch metallic. Really dry finish. Not quite in balance, but leaning my direction.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - APR 15, 2007
Pours a cloudy golden with a light whispy head. Aroma is citric, acidic, and funky. The pallate is dry, somewhat watery but nice allthesame. Flavors are dominated by a sourness. I like it, but it’s hard to find much else. There is certainly some pit fruit complexity though. Some apricot texture with an exceedingly dry finish.

Stine (1627) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2007
Pale golden color. Incredibly simple. Oak pervades the aroma, apple tartness and gumdrops tag along. Sour flavor is slightly muted, lacking bite and imagination.

Vintage 2003 11.2 oz Bottle, cellared at Oaktree in New Jersey, purchase mid-March 2007. Pour is golden with a settling white head with some nice layering to the pour. Aroma is sour, with the wood highlights. Flavor is sour citrus, though I would put it as aged lemon. There is also the taste of the malt and the barrel aging in there as well. Nice complexity to this one, but I just am not a huge sour fan yet.
