Bottle at ACBF. Hazy gold beer. tiny white head. Light sourish nose. Softish palate. Mild to mid sourness tickles your tastebuds. Trace amounts of minerals and a little white wine, tangy. Really light and tasty beer and a great sour for someone who generally struggles with them! Original rating 3.4.
