Thanks to JustXBeer for sharing this one at Tieman's tasting.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with malt, wood, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour and tart mat and wood flavors on the finish. There is a mild 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 pretty good beer that is very wood but only mildly sour in the flavor.
