This is such a unique beer - one of the best sours I've had in a while. Totally breaks the mold.

Pours a rich golden orange with minimal head. A swirl can kick up a begrudging head. Orange grapefruit and just a hint of coconut on the nose. Taste bring a very interesting combo of tropical fruit and coconut - like a tart piña colada. Very unique and interesting beer. Finish is exceptionally clean.

Bottle shared by Lunch. Thanks!

Radiant orange body with a thin cap that hisses and fades within seconds. Coconut, yeast, funk, oak, alcohol, tropical fruit aromas. Lots of coconut in the flavor. Sweet coconut milk with a potpourri of tropical fruits, to include pineapple, mango, melon, guava. Quite tasty indeed.
