3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 form Rite Aid, bottled on March 24, 2014. That was a really rapid trip to the shelf. The pour is a cloudy yellow with a fizzy white head. The aroma is great and I have a good feeling about this one. It’s wild, cheesy with tartness like lemons and a subtle backdrop of earthy hops. The palate is a little spritzy and dry. I like a lot of what is going on here in the flavor: subtle earth and wood suggestions, aggressive citrus and vinegar flavors. But the sourness is very sharp and flirts with being chalky or like straight acid even at around 50 degrees. But it improves the warmer it gets and at close to room temperature it’s nice. I do still enjoy the aroma more.

750ml. A decent little sour here from Uinta. Orangey on the nose, citrus hints, bit of funk. Flavor is fairly translucent to the nose, bits of citrus zest, hints at barnyard, grass, and a tiny bit of hoppy end. It’s all there, just a bit too thin.
