look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: pours a nice golden orange color. a small white head with low retention and a small lacing. super hazy and nearly opaque.

Smell: vinegar, lemon acidity, white wine grapes, weak funkiness.

Taste: opens up with lemon, along with some other citruses floating in. white wine sweetness and grapes. some grainy to wheaty tastes in the middle. the end is strong on the vinegar and some funk.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. sourness is there but never overpowering.

Overall: maybe I have odd taste in sour beers, but this one certainly doesn't blow me away. it tastes good is well done but I don't understand what sets this apart from hundreds of other sours.

Bottle Shared by pushkinwow - 2012 edition - thanks!

Appearance - Gold colour with an average size white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 4-5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Breads/grains, lemons, vinegar

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste breads/grains, vinegar, tart lemons - both the juice and the zest. Also some hay/straw/funky notes and a bit of a peppery spice mix.

Overall - One of the most balanced beers within this style I have had so far. Very drinkable and extremely tasty. Happy I had the chance to try it.
