750 ml bottle shared. This one opened with a bang, but thankfully it wasnít a gusher. Poured a lighter copper with a white head of foam. The aroma is fairly vinegar forward with some fruity acidity coming through. Tastes sweet for the most part, but finishes dry and tart.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml served in a snifter
A - Pours a cloudy golden orange with a small head that vanishes in an instant. No retention or lacing to speak of.
S - Funky citrus, limes, sea salt, earthy brine, floral hops.
T - Tart and salty upfront, lime citrus brine, some bright strawberry fruit, sharp pineapple, unripened kiwi, floral and spicy hops. Some ginger comes through, with thick pale malts in the background. Thereís an earthiness there that plays well with snappy citrus. Finishes salty and tart with hints of pepper.
M - Super low carbonation, medium body but lack of carbonation makes for a muddy and watery feel.
Love the salty tartness and the limes really shine! If the carbonation was there this would be big time. I would sip on this all summer! Keep making this!(But with more carbonation)

Craft Clerkenwell tasting. Thanks to Aaron. Hazy gold beer, little white head. Light crisp palate. Little dry. Light sherbetty sourness. Generic fruits, peach identifiable. Touch of orange peel and then candy sweets. Dry finish. Overall a bit dry but a very nice and very interesting medley of flavours.

Pours hazy orange. Nose is funk, tartness, spice and funky fruit complexities. This one is spicy tart grapefruit and funky dry malts. This is a little more than a saison than a sour/wild. Thanks, Jcr!
