Bottle shared at the Swamp Head Bottle Drop. Pours slightly murky orange colored with a fluffy white to off white head on top. Beautiful aroma of sour vinegar, tropical fruit, and the light spice I get from the regular SitR. Flavor follows with light sourness that is sweetened up by the semisweet and tart kumquats, clean crisp finish with a lingering fruity flavor left on the palate. My wife, not being a fan of most beers, actually even really enjoyed this one. The fruit balances the sour perfectly here and creates a new beer that retains the beautiful sour flare that I love in the regular version. A little more heft than the regular version, creamy yet crisp, sweet and tart, with medium plus carbonation. I would have this one again and again.

Clear dark golden.... nice white head... good lacing and retention. Nose is pretty damn citrus sour.... kumquats are loud and proud. Flavor has the same big kumquat presence... citric and pithy... lactic and unapologetic.. liquid sweet tarts... juicy citrus .... for my humble palate, the sour notes destroy any rye perceptions that I might have. Light/medium body... good carbonation.... very puckery and sour, still pretty refreshing though a 750 is plenty between 5 dudes.

jcos (1522) - Maryland, USA - APR 1, 2014
Location/Date:Bottle pour from Dave on 4/1/2014.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy orange.
Aroma: Light sour yeasty, tangerine/orange aroma.
Taste: Lightly sour, citrus(orange/tangerine, aka kumquat), light yeast. Nice.
Palate:Medium body, covers alcohol well.

Summary: A nice accessible sour ale. Not too funky, which is how I prefer it.
