Pour out of 22 oz bottle, slightly hazy golden orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of apricot, tangerine, sour fruits, some slight earthy, oak notes with a touch of spice. Taste was a mix of bread, tart fruit, apricot/stone fruit into some citrus, hints of cinnamon, finishing tart, slightly dry.

after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, 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. Doesn’t have quite the clarity of flavors of the very best fruit sours, but it’s a nice one.

drjay44 (3829) - Salida, Colorado, USA - APR 2, 2017
651 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, poorly retained, ivory head, with no lacing over a quite hazy, effervescent, amber (SRM 13) body......nose is moderate apricot, lactic acid, mild funk, slight esters with light vinous tones, no hops.....taste is moderately tart/sour with lactic acid tones, slight funk/barnyard, moderate apricot with light green tones, hints of raspberry, lemon, light malts with hints of cracker and bread, mild hop spice, finishing with light but lingering tart sourness......mouth feel, light of medium body, no alcohol, high carbonation, moderate astringency. The barrels contribution is quite subtle and almost hidden, as are the hops with the result that the apricots and sourness are dominant, with light funk. BJCP 8/2/15/4/7

March 11, 2017 - on tap at the Rare Beer Fest. Yellow pour with limited head. The taste was just way too tart, not very enjoyable for me.
