look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Served in a 22 oz. bomber.
2013 edition

Appearance: yellowish orange, crystal clear, perfect.

Smell: Sweetness from the malt, hops, oak, lactic sourness. Everything you want, nothing more nothing less. All the aromas make an appearance at every stage of the experience. Amazing.

Taste: Everything you smell you taste and more. I thought at one point I had opened a bottle of sparkling apple juice. Might as well be apple sparkling wine.

Mouthfeel: Light, astringent, bubbly. Again perfect.

Overall: I want more. It's an amazing beer. The 96 point rating is a tad bit low in my opinion, I can't find anything wrong with it. I'm not the most experienced sour beer drinker, but I've had Cantillon , Drie Fonteinen, Cascade and Russian River offerings and I wouldn't hesitate to put this up against any of them. Thank you New Belgium. What a truly fantastic beer.

Serving type: bottle
