unfiltered bottle. fruity, waxy lacto nose with gelatinous orange chew candy sweetness. tart and must accompanying citrus and agave sweetness, medium body, medium-high tartness, high lactic acid and citrus / wax. surprisingly well-balanced and strongly flavorful with welcome acid salivating the mouth and promoting further quaffs. sweet, a bit waxy / creamy, delicious overall. sweetart resemblance is there.
From notes. Enjoyed at a tasting Kyle finally made it to at Mickey’s on December 01. 22 oz bottle. This one looks like a bummer. The pour is a dirty amber color with no head and no apparent carb to be found. That’s a shame. The aroma is interesting. There is a light citrus and a pretty syrupy sweetness. There is a hint of sourness on the back end, but this is bland, light, and seems off. The flavor is much of the same. There is a hint of sourness, but a sweet fruitiness takes over and there is a bit of an acidity on the finish. The mouth feel is syrupy and not good. There isn’t any carb to be found and it just leaves a flat, not good finish. I’m okay not trying this one any more. Ugh. Bule (2309) - California, USA - APR 30, 2016
22oz bottle pours a pale brown color with out any head. No carbonation left. Looks like this is coming up on 5 years old. Delicious balance of sour and funk despite the lack of carb.

Imperial wheat beer kind of sour. Lighter tart notes lemons and a bit of wheat. Huhzubendah (3775) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Bottle shared by yourefragile. Thanks Mike.
The beer appears a hazy, light orange hue with virtually no head or lace. The aroma offers a mild sourness with notes of citrus. The nose is much more subtle than I anticipated, based on previous experiences with Santa Fe wild ales. The flavor is decent enough, but could be so much more. Surf Mountain Sour lacks the daring, bold, palate attacking flavor for which I was hoping. A mild acetic character gently emerges in the finish. It’s always a treat to sample a new sour/wild ale, but this one fell a bit short for me.
