A bright pop of lemony and tart quality. Heavy tart qualities. Then the beer has a medium malt in the middle. Then the beer shines of really good passionfruit and pineapple. The fruit quality really helps this beer out and separate it from some other American sours.

A - Yellow cloudy coloring. A white head that dissipates quickly. looks very refreshing.
S - Great wheat notes, citrus, and sour smelling.
T - The citrus notes really pop out in the taste, the wheat is still there, and the sour is definitely there. A bit of floral notes as you might expect from a wheat.
M/D - Great carbonation. The sourness is great but only mouth puckering on the first drink, after that easy enough to drink which i enjoyed. This is a light/crisp beer that is refreshing but still has a kick in the taste which is awesome.

From Dajtai007. Thanks Daniel!

Poured not too cold into a big wine glass.

Attractive cloudy golden color, with a mere smattering of froth.

Fresh tart fruity aroma, with some cheddar and black pepper, wet stones, and a hint of bubblegum. Nice mix of sweet, sour, spicy, and savory. The complex fruitiness is along the lines of Meyer lemon, white grape, apple, and peach, quite delicious. Over time, oak emerges, like caramel custard with a touch of vanilla in it, deep and rich, complementing the fruit quite well. One of the best expressions of oak that I have every experienced.

Tastes fruity, tart, dry, and minerally, like fruit salad served on wet river rocks. The acidity is moderate, but it's tart enough to be very refreshing. Cohesive and balanced. Moderately long finish, dry and minerally, with some grain and mild hop flavor surfacing as the fruit fades.

Light bodied, spritzy but not overly so. Extremely refreshing and quaffable.

Some of the best smelling stuff that my nose has come across in a while, quite enjoyable.
