650 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, off white long duration head, with moderate lacing, over a cloudy gold (SRM 5) body....nose is cereal, light acetic acid, light tropical fruits, melon....taste is light sour to start then light semi-sweet melon, hints of cinnamon, very light vanilla, finishing with a light sour bite, with lemon tones....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation adds a foamy quality. The sourness is overly dominated by the fruity sweetness. I would have preferred more pucker power. The cinnamon is barely present, and the wood almost hidden. Overall this is a good beer. BJCP 7/3/15/4/7

5/18/12. 22oz bottle. Hazy orange pour with a nice khaki head. Sweet fruity and slightly spiced arena with hints of acidic sourness. Nice subtle flavors of wood, sweet fruits, light sourness, and a touch of spice. Subtle but complex flavors in there. Nice!

Bomber. Poured a hazy, yet glowing orange, with a small head that quickly dissipated. Smell is brett funk, some barnyard, tart pineapple, lemon peel, and green apple. Taste is tropical fruit, green apple, tart lemon, and yeast, with a medium tart finish. Not too sour and very well-balanced, but Im not picking up cinnamon at all, which is probably a good thing. Body is medium with high carbonation that leaves my taste buds feeling tingly. Overall, a nice refreshing beer and perfect for summer. Not too sour and very affordable; I will return to this one.

Pours cloudy orange. Lightly sour taste with a smooth dry finish. Cant say I know lychee, but an excellent citrus flavor nonetheless. Not much cinnamon, but faintly spicy, so maybe thats it. Barely pick out the oak on the finish. Agree with earlier rater, this would be a great starter sour. All the taste with no pucker.

sherm1016 (1273) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 16, 2012
22oz bottle from Downer Wine & Spirit. Pours a cloudy, yellowish amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is fruity, green apple, a little oaky. Medium on the palate with lively carbonation. Flavor is lightly sour, tart fruit, apple, cherries, lychee perhaps, a little oak, with a light, sour finish. Very drinkable. A nice intro sour for someone who has never tried. The cinnamon is a bit lost on me, but it is not really missed.

Pours a hazey golden wheat color. Good foamy white head. Aroma is tart as I expected . Taste wasnt as sour as I would have thought, tart yes but suttle sour taste in the finish. Was actually fairly sweet initially. Not overly carbonated. Mouthfeel is pretty dry yet smooth. I had a hard time picking up cinnamon that is described as being added. Id recommend this to friends moving into the sour world, it is likely a good transitional beer.

Refreshing brew. Could use a bit more sour IMO. Very well crafted for such an experiential beer. Well worth a shot. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very murky orangish yellow color. Fizzy white head. Nose is tart and powdery. Flavor is ultra sweet, a bit tart, and finished with a weak sourness as sours go. The mouthfeel is lively and dry.

Bottle shared by BuckeyeBoy. Nice funky fruit nose, though a bit candy-like. Tangy, sweet flavor, laichee, candy sourball. Quite sweet and mellow, with cinnamon blending in nicely. Enjoyable and likeable, though not really a great sour.
