750, capped. Thanks j! Pours a murky dark amber with very little head or lace. Mildly sharp tart nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Beautiful oak, lacto, sour fruit, pith, and caramel mid palate. Long tart finish.

Capped 750 shared by oRos. Pours hazy orange with no head. Aroma is rather rye and wood. With fruit. Med body. It is very tart. Quite astringent, and very kumquat. Very tart and tasty.

marcus (8805) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle shared by oRos. Pours murky copper with a tiny beige head and a funky fruit aroma. There is a mellow sour fruit flavor that sticks to the palate.

this was my favorite version of sour in the rye, while the kumquats did not really shine through they seemed to have intensified this beer was a fun treat

Beermack (725) - London, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2014
75cl bottle (2013) courtesy of deekyn. Hazy reddish brown, thin white head. Massive juicy kumquat tang on the nose, apricots, vinous notes, strawberry, oak, light vanilla, citric zing. Taste is fabulous: so light and juicy, full of peach and kumquat. Decent funk, lemon juice zing. Red berries in there too. Really great sour kick. Lingering berries and citrus, so zesty. Decent oak lingering too. Serious brew, love this.

Ontape (470) - Valley Village, California, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Bottle. If you know the regular version, this is pretty much what you’d expect / hope for from a kumquat variation. Surprised at how well the fruit cuts through the strong, complex flavor. Delicious.

czar (7361) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 21, 2014
pours hazy dark golden orange with a small off-white cap, some retention and lacing. very fruity and juicy - prunes, cherries, grapes, if not kumquats, perfumey - pears, for instance, fruity and nutty maltiness, spices-plenty, woodsy. moderate carbonation, light body - oily, astringent and citric finish. balanced. tasty. good - but i still prefer regular version, i.e. without kumquats.
