Draft at tasting room. Color cross between amber and orange. Vibrant sour aroma (Brett?) Rather thin body. Good strong sour flavor with tartness lingering in the aftertaste. Slight bit of warming. Could use a little more body. But, not bad.

Bottle. Clear amber color. Tart fruit and wine aromas, a little funky. Sharp tartness in the mouth, some sour, bread and wood quickly dominate. Not bad but kind of boring.

Mildly tart sour. Not real complex. Hints of berry and oak. Good beer to introduce someone to sours, but not for those who want complex, sour goodness.
