A rather clean and spritzy sour ale, redolent of tea flavored with sour oranges and grapefruit juice, jazzed up with seltzer. A reminder that sourness and depth have different axes. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - APR 1, 2013

On draft at Churchkey in D.C.
The beer is orange and pretty hazy with a soft white head. The aroma offers an assortment of fruits, to include peaches, apples, white grapes, lemons. Beautiful blend of citrus flavors. Nectarines and tangerines are very forward in the flavor. Very subtle tartness. A hint of oak. The beer is fairly sweet, but nowhere near cloying. More like a natural, fruity sweetness. Medium bodied with lingering citrus on the palate. A really tasty beer.

On tap at Smoke & Barrel. Peach and moderate acidity. Mostly lactic. Just a touch of oak in the background. Light with fairly-low carbonation. GT (10002) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Tap at Churchkey. Pours a low haze lighter peach pour. Weak head. Nose is funky, fresh cantaloupe, mild white vinegar, small candies and sweet white grape juice. Taste is tart but very bland, not much substance. It is mouth watering, salty, clean but overall just very light on peach and mango flavors. Palate is sparkling, minerally, refreshing. decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - FEB 23, 2013

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Smell: Bready, pale malts, moderate oakiness, mild funkiness, and a tartish whiff of cranberry citrus chutney.
Taste: Modestly bready, meager pale malts with essentially no appreciable sweetness. Some citrus. Has a tartness and crackling acidity like munching on a cranberry, forcing a Joker-like grin. Light funk. Pinch of table salt. Balanced oak qualities. Long, dry finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Near nil carbonation.
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2013 Cask @ ACAT - While I am not rating this extremely high, I did go back for more at the festival as it was so refreshing and sessionable . Pours a foggy golden yellow with minimal head. Smell is light fruit (peach, tart berries) with mellowed oak. Taste was light tart fruit, a bit of funkiness and oak. Very light and refreshing. Tasty stuff.
