Bottle: Poured a cloudy orangey color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and light lacing notes. Aroma of light citrus and clementine notes is quiet refreshing. Taste is also dominated by citrus notes with some clementine notes which are very refreshing and light tangy and tart finish. Body is quite full with medium carbonation. I just took this out of the fridge without knowing exactly what I was about to drink but very good beer even though sour side is not that apparent.

Thanks Nick!

Poured an orange, slightly honey, hazy color with 1-to-2 fingers of gray (maybe khaki-white lacing). Some bubbles hanging onto the sides of the glass. Minimal lacing along the sides of the glass. Minimal retention on the top all the way down.

Smelled tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit zest, coriander, mango, peach, apricot, floral hops, tropical hops, sour tarts, Smarties and nectarine.

Taste was similar, but not quite as good as the nose. Still all those fruity flavors, notably pineapple, tangerine, grapefruit, peach, apricot, Smarties, sour tart, Sweet Tarts, coriander, Brett notes, nectarine, mango and other tropical notes.

Light body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Long, fruity, flavorful finish.

A pretty good sour/wild ale. Lots of flavors that I’m not used to. I’d love to have it again.
