Pours a clear medium orange, with creamy one finger thick white head, settles slowly to a thin ring and a mess of lace down the glass. Smell: sour peach, mango, green apple candy, lime; herbal, hay and acetic notes. Taste: lime segment, green apple, peach skin, tart white grape, woody and mildly herbal notes. Creamy, medium bodied. Hopping and tartness are well integrated, quite tasty. 2014.

I’ve been wanting to try a sour ale, and kinda bought this one on a limb.

L (4) – Pours a nice clear orange/copper color. Little bit of head on top.

S (4.25) – Smells really good. Get a citrus and hoppy aroma.

T (4) – They aren’t joking when they say “sour.” It’s very sour. I didn’t get a whole lot of the hop flavor, but I enjoyed it. I wasn’t sure at first, but I kept grabbing the glass for more.

F (4) – This beer is very carbonated, almost like a champagne. Maybe not quite that much, but a lot.

O (4) – Overall, I’m glad I got this beer. 22oz is a lot, and I’d have probably preferred it to have been a 12 oz bottle! I have no other sours to compare to, but I would drink this again.
