Bottled 23apr13 This beer pours an amber with a rim of creams. Smells of kumquat skins. Flavor is nice with lactic and some more juicy kumquats. Nice flavor. Medium on light with moderate carb. Dry finish. Nice beer.

Bottle, Deep, softly hazed scarlet-orange with a fuzzy and fizzy head of French vanilla. Well-blended aroma -- a little funk and sweet, fruity citrus (kumquat), lavender, a gentle toastiness, a splash of balsamic. Beautiful. The flavor’s a little less complex, loaded with lemony acidity atop a backdrop of orange peel and orange blossom honey. The tartness is bold but not overpowering, and the snap of rye shows up in the front of the flavor. Good stuff.

djd07 (5894) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle thanks to Will. Pours a dark orange with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong kumquat, stone fruit, funk, oak. Thin mouth, very sour, similar flavors to nose, really enjoyed this one.

MacBoost (1488) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Turbid light Amber pour, minimal head. Aromas of some citrus, some oak, some funk. Taste is tart and semi dry. Flavors of citrus fruit, oak barrel, mossy rocks. Citrus twang on the edges of the lips, but not overwhelmingly tart. Nice lactic acidity to it, no vinegar. This is focused and dialed in. Pretty damn good.

Nice fruit addition to the usual sour in the rye. Fresh citrus on top of the typical sour citrus notes makes for beautiful balance.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a hazy amber color with a frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour yeast and tart fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & sweet fruit flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.
