4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750mL bottle, pours a hazy dark orange amber with a tiny white head. Aroma brings out citrus fruits, medium sourness, and a little apricot. Flavour is very juicy and fruity, with apricots, loads of oranges and other very citric citrusy fruits, with a tiny hint of sweetness. Extremely dynamic flavour profile, starting almost sweet and then progressing to very highly citric notes. Very fruity and citric on the finish. As good as the peach version. Excellent.

Hazy yellow. You got to let this one warm up to let the fruit blossom. Kumquat bitterness from skin and juice. Nice. Extremely tart.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Pours a hazy pinkish amber with a medium off-white head and decent lacing. Aroma is tart cherry, funk, barnyard, citrus. Flavor is quite tart, puckering. Notes of citrus, fruity zesty bitterness. The kumquat comes out after the beer warms for a while - take a whiff and you smell one of those little bastards after you pop it in your mouth and bite down - a tart mix of fruit and rind. Medium body. Not bad, but I prefer the regular SiTR. The kumquats seem to detract from the complexity of the base beer, and add too much rindy bitterness.

Lemon lime soda aroma, flavor is better with a nice spice and sourness, the kumquats naturally worked well.

Bottle from RS. Aroma is buttered biscuits, orange zest, and lemon juice. Flavor is more citrus with a lot of kumquat flavor, lactic, and very sour. Palate is medium carbonation, some body, and pucker. Great beer, very enjoyable.

25 July 2013, bottle. Dark yellow, clear, no bubbles. Nose is slightly sweeter than sour in the rye. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Sugary, kumquat, tart. Lots of fun, though I prefer the normal sour in the rye.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very nice bronze and burnt orange appearance. Nice head which fades fast. Nose is bold and acidic. Very aggressive with lovely citrus and booming almond aroma. Taste is just as lovely. Taste is just as nice. Very smooth. I feel like Iím biting into a tangerine with grapefruit zest and a touch of kiwi. Very acidic and the rye is subdued. Honestly, I think the orange acidity and sweetness is great and it truly should be enjoyed fresh. Delicious and wonderful. A dang good American sour

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pour is hazy, peach-amber color with a small white head. Aroma is acetic acid and light funk up front with faint hints of berry-like fruitiness and distant orange peel. Aroma is very nice, not overly complex. Flavor is very tart up front but then gives way to the wonderful orange-peel flavor that is kumquat. The finish is more tart kumquat with lingering sour notes . Even get some mild bitterness from the kumquat seeds. Itís sour, but I really like it.
