Taste at pub. This is the beer for the buddy you bring along that doesn’t like anything other then light beer. Its a start I guess. Just your basic blonde ale.

Tap at the brewery...nice lacing in the glass but the aroma doesn’t come off too much. Mostly tart and a bit of vinegar. But it tastes amazing, with a balanced tart body that finishes with a juicy fruit bite. Not overly sour by any means, and makes you want another sip.

@ Russian River 16-3-7: En fantastisk trevlig öl med stora syrliga frukttoner. Tydlig sträv och mycket torr. Riktigt gott

On tap at the Brewpub. Golden with a white head. Aroma and taste of apricot, funk, light vinegar and some malt. Soft and kind of relaxed.

Draft at Toronado-San Francisco, served in a stemmed glass. Pours a clear light gold with a small white ring for a head. Notes of sawdust, lime, lemon, pluots (yeah!), grass, straw, tangerine, fresh herbs - acetic, tart, fresh, sharp, clean. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. Woody with fresh tart fruit. Oh man, this is awesome. Just a notch below Beatification, which is one of the best sours ever invented. Amazing.

Tap at Russian River. Awesome beer. Slightly cloudy with great head and lace. Very lifted aromatics. Clean. Very sour but great balance. Great length.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Russian River. Nose is fruity pluots (mostly plum rather than apricot ), woodiness, a slight funkiness, and a tart citrus. Murky orange tinged yellow with a medium heavy lacing yellow tinged head. Flavor is lightly tart and fruity with a slight wine note from the barrels. I’ve waited since 2008 to taste this missing it by a few days several times.

I’m into my sours, and this is a great one. Manages both apricot and plumb flavor and nose with the pluots, though they generally have ,ore plum IMHO. Over the top sour. Not easy drinking, which prevents it from being one of my top sours, but the fruit, intense acidity and carbonation, and fairly heavy oakiness were just fine.
