Poured on-tap at Taco Asylum. Reviewed from notes.
A- No real head to speak of, ruby red and orangish color.
S- Fruity and light hops. Cherry and lemon notes present.
T- Hoppy and very, very fruity! Lemon and plum maybe? Those flavors take over. Tart and citrusy.
M- Very light bodied and lightly carbonated.
O- Very drinkable and fruity. Lovely lighter beer for such a strong one.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a growler I picked up from the brewery/tasting room yesterday to a Duvel chalice.
Fairly mirky amber/caramel color with a 2cm bubbly white head. Low retention and no lacing.
Belgian candy sugar, banana and caramel malt on the nose.
Light flavor. Not alot of depth. Slight sweetness up front similar to the banana flavors in a Hef. Also orange peel and maybe bitter mango. Transitions quickly to a slight sour finish. Flavor is pleasant and fairly balanced.
Light bodied and crisp mouth feel with good carbonation.
Overall it's good but nothing special. Could be a beer for someone trying to transition into liking sours. The right time to drink this beer is now in this hot CA summer.

Picked up at the local Total Wines a few days ago. Have not yet had this offering from Bootleggers, hope it helps cool me down with the heat wave.
A: The beer pours a slightly cloudy, but can still see through orange. A billow white head rose over two inches, but faded ridiculously fast, and left no lace. I could have sworn I had just poured a glass of soda, or orange Shasta, strange.
S: Mild orange peel, some light candy sugar, pear, and sweet malt.
T: Tangerine, orange, peach. Light esters of yeast and malt, and bit sticky.
M: Light, thin, and again sticky sugar. It's tasting nearly flat, despite the crazy carbonation upon pouring.
O: Hate to knock a local breweries beer, but this is average, barely. Not sure what happened with the carbonation, and the overall profile is light, tame, and muted, and bit sticky sweet. It is bottled condition, so maybe the yeast is to blame, and if so that's a shame, but something that surely can be fixed. No plans to revisit this one at the moment though.
