Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

2009 vintage.

Pours a murky light orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with malt, fruit, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour and tart fruit-like flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is tasty and very easy to drink.

Bottle was hard to open and barely a sound as the cork came out. Barely any head was produced as it poured. The smell is sharply acidic with not to much funk and hints of apple. Flavor follows suit with a lot of acidity but not to much else going on. The mouthfeel is low carbonation highly puckering. Overall this is a very tasty sour just kind of one dimensional and under carbed, not worth what a lot if people trade.
