A: Pours a burnt orange with a nice off-white head.

S: Aroma is super-citrusy. Lots of orange and grapefruit and apricot notes, along with some lemony acidity lurking.

T: Taste brings earthy sourness, bit of bitter grapefruit pith, light vanilla wood tannin, lemon, mango, super drying and fruity.

M: Light-bodied with light carb.

O: Always a pleasure. One of the few New Belgium beers along with La Folie still working buying.

Not a big fan of sours, but this beer has so much going on, it's hard not to be impressed. Along with the expected sour component, there's some nice vanilla, grapes, and wine (cabernet is what I thought I picked up). Can't imagine drinking a full pint or tulip of this, but in a small, 4 ounce taster glass, this was very nice. Impressive.

Clear orange sun colored pour with an airy one-finger white head. Aroma is big and fruity with grapefruit and apricot standing out. Excellent tart flavor of tropical fruit and citrus. Grapefruit, apricot and orange peel flavors really stand out. Medium bodied and lightly carbonated.
