A. Cloudy orange. Head dissipates quickly.

S. Sour Tangerine. Oak

T. Like the smell. Tangerine oak and some bitterness from the hops. Funky.

M. Puckering but not overbearing. Medium body and low to medium carbonation.

O. Pretty good level of sour and lots of flavor going on. Would drink this again

750 mL gusher of a bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy and murky orange. Not much of a head. Thin collar.

Smell - Acidic. Very bretty. Hoppy too. Citrus and grapefruit. Musty.

Taste - Citrus hop, but gets tangy quickly. Lemony tang. Earthy brett is strong.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Bitter and mildly sour. Flavorful for its size.

Overall - Got tiresome after a while.

Cheers to SteveO for this one. Had a few Trinity beers prior to moving from the springs, this my first since move here...

Bottle 772 12/12, batch TBB 1-6 opens with a little gush, no big thang...

Pours a hazed amber with a thumb of egg shell colored head. Never totally clears, pretty nice head retention & below average lacing

S: Much sourness, citric & grassy notes

T: Sourness, a touch of grassyness, lemons & pineapples, plus tartness up front, so getting the tangerine rind, but also pineapple in spades. Earthy lemony/citric tartness, a bit of oakyness & pineapple as this warms, choke cherry here as well. Finishes tart with grapefruit, pineapple, a bit of white grape & honeysuckle & puckery, oaky sourness

MF: Medium bodied with delicate carbonation, plus some warming sensation

So easy to drink, wow a whole lot of flavor packed into a quaffable 4.1 abv package. This the greatness I recall from Jason on stops prior to Trinity! Classic American Wild ale, no real major flaws here only minor detractors
