pours a nice amber orange. smells a bit strange due to the dry hopped sour. very crisp. really enjoy this taste as the sourness is mild and the hops mesh well.

not as big a fan of dry hopped sours as I thought I would be. This is a good example of the style though.

Pours a cloudy dark golden color with a finger width foamy head. Head retention and lacing are mild. Has that Belgium yeast sour aroma. Slightly fruity. The taste is excellent! Bready at first but quickly hits you with a sour, fruity blast. Leaves that sour taste on your palate. Definitely one of my favorite beers. I just wish it wasn't so damn expensive.

Serving Type: Bottle (2014 vintage)
Consumed 3.15.15

A: 4.5 Very pretty beer. Pours a clear orange-gold with a one-inch light beige, lacy head.

S: 4.25 The aromas are just wonderful. Lots of bright, juicy, citrus balanced by slight funk and minerals. The hops are quite strong, but they offer more orange and grapefruit with a touch of pine, all of which compliment the funk and sour elements rather than dominating.

T: 4 Flavors match the aromas quite well. Big juicy citrus hits first followed by a rather high level of tartness. Very light bitterness follows with the mineral flavor that was on the nose. More orange lingers on the finish.

M: 4.25 Light and refreshing with an excellent, dry finish. A bit undercarbonated for my tastes.

O: 4.25 An excellent example of a dry-hopped sour. Neither the hops nor the sour flavors are too aggressive. All very balanced and refreshing with enough going on that keeps you interested.

Tasty unique beer, sweet and sour with a pleasantly astringent and floral dry hopped flavor. Pours a hazy light copper color, and has an aroma that matches the taste.

On tap at Naja’s. Pours hazy orange with no head and some lacing. Aroma is sour tropical fruits, vinegar, and a little funk. Taste is initially sour peach and mango, settling to a slightly spicy hop bitterness. Medium bodied, low to mid carbonation, dry, and a little sticky.
