on tap @ Hebron Brew Haus / Hebron KY --- Hazy light amber color, white head that drops to a full cover, lace strips. Taste is sour malt that moves through light carbonation to a long sour finish. Strong for a sour, but also balanced and thirst-quenching.

Draught at St. Augustines, Vancouver
Cloudy blond color. Light tropical aroma, mild tartness, a bit of citrus fruitiness. I would have expected more lychee; a bit moldy, funky in the final.
Pleasant fruity(-ish) sour.

Oakes (16088) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 24, 2016
Cloudy, pale. Lacto, sweet lychee, clean pale malts. The lychee balances the kettle sour nicely, such that this is a nicely balanced refreshing brew.

Hazy yellow pour, large white head. Big fresh lemon, and melon Aroma, fresh melon rind, honeydew and some nice light malts and yeast with some light funk. Soft mouth feel and a very soft carb. Finish is tart and funky, with more melon, and some citrus pith. Not as sour as I expected but still quite good, and dangerously drinkable for 7.5.
