500 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 4/28/2017. Pours fairly crystal clear medium golden/yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tart lemon, lime, orange peel, grapefruit, pear, green apple, coriander, licorice, anise, cinnamon, cardamom, juniper, spruce, lavender, rosemary, peppercorn, wheat, cracker, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/acidic yeast, citrus fruit/peels, spices, and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart lemon, lime, orange peel, grapefruit, pear, green apple, coriander, licorice, anise, cinnamon, cardamom, juniper, spruce, lavender, rosemary, peppercorn, wheat, cracker, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tartness and light spice bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart lemon, lime, orange peel, grapefruit, pear, green apple, coriander, licorice, anise, cinnamon, cardamom, juniper, spruce, lavender, rosemary, peppercorn, wheat, cracker, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, citrus fruit/peels, spices, and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/tart/spiciness balance, and no puckering/astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from tart/spiciness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, fairly acidic, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6.5%. Overall this is an awesome fruit/spiced kettle sour. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, citrus fruit/peels, spices, and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the modestly tart/acidic finish. Huge levels of fragrant spice complexity, but still really well balanced with the base sour and not overwhelming. Really unique and interesting, it grew on me through the glass. Nails the cocktail idea perfectly. A really enjoyable and delicious offering.

Split a 500ml bottle. Has the body of a beer, but cocktail character dominates--just as the brewer intended. Mildly sour, lemon citrus. I’m not a gin fan but enjoyed what was done with this sour. Not a boozy gin taste, a nice sipper.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a near clear yellow with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a strong sour citrus note with sine sweet grains and a strong gin botanical note supporting. Flavor has a strong sour citrus note as well with some light gin botanicals underlying.
