A nice enjoyable small sour. The base beer is a low alcohol rice based lager with a dose of Lacto. How to make a yellow fizzy beer drinkable!! A very quaffable summer treat. Dark is the same as the regular, colored with Sinimar.

Pour on tap at GABF, hazy yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of tart lemon, biscuit, bread, hints of oaky, earthy tones, slight grass, spice in there as well, hints of vanilla. Taste is a mix of lemon, biscuit, bread, slight vanilla, cracker in there, touch of grassy spice notes, finishing slightly tart, slightly bitter.

Keg at RBSG. Pours a hazy yellow color with good sized foam. Aromas of melon, lacto, strawberry, and yeast. The palate is medium bodied with flavors of pineapple, lemon, yogurt, and lacto. The palate is rich for the style and complex. Finishes dry with fine carbonation.

On tap at Sourfest (and several times since). Pours with a hazed, medium yellow hued body with a huge white head that leaves great lace. Aromas are grassy, grainy, estery, yogurt, tropical fruit, lacto, floral, cantaloupe and peach. Flavors are strongly of canned peaches, tart, fruity, lacto, tropical fruit esters. Lively bubbles with a dry finish. Very tasty.

On draft at GABF 2012. Pours a mildly hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is a nice bit of lemon, light fruit, and some lacto. Flavor follows the nose. Interesting take on the style.

On tap at the RBSG 2012 Grand Tasting. Pale straw color with a white head. Lovely mild tart flavor, obvious rice influence but a nice floral peachy fruitiness fills it out. Very refreshing.

GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Tap on the RBSG bus thanks to t0rin0 and the crew. Low haze golden pour. A bit darker than expected. Nose is apple pie, caramel, white vinegar, truffle oil, green apples, salt. Taste is heavy vinegar, diacetyl plus acetic acid. Thick butteriness. Very strange.

JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JUL 23, 2012
On draught at RBSG 2012. Thanks to Steve A. and Highwater for providing this beer t0rino for scoring it. I like their description "small sour". This pretty much hits the nail on the head. Sour but not too sour, very quaffable. Enjoyed it
