4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours hazy and yellow with a small, wispy, white head. Good retention. The aroma features a merger of vanilla, citrus peels and toasted oak. Medium to full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. The flavor is sour and citrusy. The finish is short, crisp and tart. Big thanks to newcigarz for sharing this delight!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
375ml bottle from trade. Pours a hazy straw color with a larg white puffy head. Aromas of a whole lotta rubber band and not much else. Perhaps a whiff of citrus. Taste is mildly tart, with some rubber band. In all honesty, this tastes quite like my home brewed sour hard cider. Hmm. Flavors of rubber band and citric acid. Kind of watery. Very mediocre.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty sure this is the one I had. Hazy light tan. Fresh, lemony, vinous...really interesting nose. Tastes lemony, a bit footy yeast, and a hint of lemon. The taste isn’t as clean as the nose, but there’s a nice tartness late that aims ambitious.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A- Pours a beautiful tangerine color with an off white head that sticks around for quite a while.
S- Funky, sour, citrus, lemon rind.
T- Floral citrus, lemon rind, wheat, a hint of sourness up front and on the back end.
M- Medium bodied with ample carbonation.
D- I really enjoyed this beer. The floral aspect of the citrus was a little powerful for me and i’m interested to see if that will drop out with age.

Pour is clear golden yellow with a thin tight white head. Nose is oaky, lemon, light phenol. Citrus doesn’t really shine, a bit tannic. Taste is more citrusy, fleshy ripe orange. Oak comes in after, light sourness, lacto. Lemon comes in at the back of the palate, strong carbonation and dry finish. Lingering tartness and tannin. Red wine starts to come out more as it warms.

Bottle. All around sour, all citrus nose, sour taste, it’s mostly lemon that i get from it. Nice citrus sour ale but that is all that it really has to offer.

Bottle shared by Jack. Another cool sour. I found this one to be a little on the sharp side with the lemon and bright citrus flavors produced by the fruits. I normally love all of these fruits on their own, but when teemed with the beer and lactic sourness it becomes a little too much for me. Still well done, and maybe it would get much better with a little age.
