Nice fruit addition to the usual sour in the rye. Fresh citrus on top of the typical sour citrus notes makes for beautiful balance. j12601 (11571) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 17, 2015

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a hazy amber color with a frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour yeast and tart fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & sweet fruit flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer. alexsdad06 (10378) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2015
750 ml bottle shared with the group. Pours a cloudy amber brown with a medium off white head. The aroma has tart fruit, acidic, oak with a spiciness that probably comes from the rye. The flavor has a nicely tart kumquat fruitiness, citrus, clean lactic acidity, oak, mild vinous notes and rye malt spice. This was a nice variation for an already solid beer. b3shine (8864) - Indiana, USA - JAN 26, 2015
750 ml bottle to taster (2013 vintage; shared by alexsdad06). Looks good; a cloudy bronze caramel with very light caramel head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells tart and mildly funky with a semi-sweet kumquat backbone. Tastes like it smells with a pleasantly tart medium to medium full-bodied mouthfeel. Good stuff!

750ml bottle, big thanks to alexsdad06 for sharing. Hazy amber orange color, light brown. Ring of off-white head. Few ridges of lace. Delicious unique fruity aroma (must be the kumquat? not familiar with those flavors). Works well with the rye flavors, and citrus. Tasty bigger sour taste, lighter sweet. Very tasty, satisfying sour ale. RussianDragon (578) - - JAN 18, 2015
750 ml, thanks Huhzubendah. Pours a hazy brownish orange with small head that gradually fades. Aroma is kumquat, and intensifies as the beer is allowed to warm. Limes, lime juice, oak, bread, rye. Flavor is tart and sour, with prominent tart kumquats, balanced by rye malt. Medium bodied and tangy, acidic finish. Delicious.
