Bottle. Clear burnt orange pour with an off white head. Kumquat aromas. Sour and tart with kumquat, lemon, and citrus highlights. Decent body and mouthfeel.

jbruner (4415) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Pours a hazy copper gold from the bottle with thin lacy off-white head that leaves light lace. Aroma is sweet caramel and citrus up front, then a nice lactic sour ending. Taste is super sour and funky, hint of tannic wood makes by sweet citrus. Pretty darn good.

Damico (3146) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Pours orange with a golden hue and creamy beige head. Aroma brings sweet citrus unique flavors, definitely the kumquats with super subtle funk and tang. Flavor brings tangy citrus fruit with a big tart body that makes the mouth pucker with linings of tropical fruit so pleasant on the palate.

nuplastikk (5968) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 6, 2013
750ml bottle courtesy of Madbeerbaron. Murky unfiltered deep copper red-orange. Intense boozed out island tones. Juicy, really just shows off the Kumquat more and more. Out there on the fringe, interesting sour experiment. Wouldve scored more but lacks finesse.

Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Beer No. 50 from The Bruery. Red-orange pour with a white head. This is definitely a delicious sour. Up front I get a lot of funk and tropical fruits, including pineapple and mango (and presumably kumquats), as well as some leather, biscuit malt and rye. Puckering, but still very easy to drink. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Glad I got to try this one.

Marheb (5440) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Une marmelade surette et dlicatement lactique flanque dune ventail malt complexe mais phmre. Superbe et surprenant considrant que je nai pas t impressionn par la version sans Kumquats.

adnielsen (10580) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle @ Matts house from our Reserve Society membership. Pours a cloudy orange appearance with a thin tan head. Pineapple, fruit cocktail, passion fruit, vanilla, mild cherry aroma. Tangy, big lemon, lime, passion fruit, guava, funky fruity flavor that finishes pretty tart. Pretty tasty beer.

arminjewell (9521) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, hazy orange pour with thin white head, aroma has big vanilla, white fruit with peach, pear, slight funk, nice fruity notes, touch of earth. Taste is a mix of big fruit, white fruit, funky fruit, nice earth, hints of grass, nice sweet fruits, fnishing fairly bitter, dry. slightly sweet. So good.

Steve_0 (3745) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle at Matts with friends. Pour is hazy orange with a small cream-colored head with decent lacing. Medicinal, peachy, apricots, doughy, grassy, herbal, menthol, minty, and funky aroma. Taste is sour peaches, fruit skin, basil, straw, tannin, white wine, and oaky with a medium sour finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Pretty nice stuff.

baraciisch (3072) - California, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Intensely tart but extremely well balanced by the kumquats... Almost fruit juice notes that give way to spicy rye and tartness, delicious and better than the original ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
