jgb9348 (6044) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 21, 2017
Ridiculously hazy peach and apricot coloured body with a nice thin, single centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of sour citrus, light earth, a dose of honey sweetness and some light grass and hay. Medium-bodied; Very nice sour fruity flavours at first that shows definite apricot, but pears and berries as well with a light note of yeast and funk, which makes this even more soured. Aftertaste shows the fruity qualities the strongest, but some nice herbal and light grassy notes mellow out the acidity, but the fruit is by far the strongest, with apricots and a robust sour profile that is very pleasant. Overall, a well-crafted sour that hits all the right notes, has the and complexity that are sometimes hard to find, but well worth trying if you can find it! I sampled this sixteen ounce pint on draught at Whole Foods in Pentagon City (Arlington), Virginia on 21-April-2017 for US$6,00 at the end of my driveway.

after4ever (7940) - Brier, Washington, USA - APR 7, 2017
22, capped and foiled. Pours a cloudy and very bright pale gold. Creamy light bright white head that goes away quickly. Bright tangy acidic nose, showing forward fresh fruit and light lemony bite. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Lightly sweetened cereal under a big fresh fruit payload on the palate. Long tangy finish. Doesnt have quite the clarity of flavors of the very best fruit sours, but its a nice one.
