3.7/5  rDev -0.5%

On tap at Deschutes in Portland, OR. Apparently a blend of oaked Mirror Pond and Green Lakes aged/soured with lactobacillus.

A finger of white head, ruby, hazy, somewhat dull body.

Tart, Flemish sour nose, but not quite vinegar.

Mild in body, much more so than the nose. Some bitter wood, some grapefruit, not overbearing at all. Perhaps because of the lacto instead of brett.

Crisp and bright.

An intro sour for sure, and probably nice for pairings like salad, etc.

First had: on tap at Deschutes, Portland, OR

A decent sour ale, poured into a snifter, a red-orange with a thin wisp of golden head that dissipated to nearly nothing. Sweet & sour aroma, citrusy, with tart fruits. Light on the tongue, taste of orange zest, light, tart berries, cherries, a bit grassy and floral, with notes of funk. Medium mouthfeel, and moderately drinkable, though one glass was plenty.
