Okay., I like some sours and wilds. This is definitely one of them.

Cohesive but bold,, assertively tart but not a super pucker. Hops are aromatic and blend well with the tart. citrus, funky notes.

Simply put: quite good, tart, complex and balanced with hoppy aromatics. Nicely done.
If you want to pucker your face off.... This not going to do that. It shows what moderate sourness, zingy hops, and interesting flavors can do as a team.

2013

A: pale with quick lived head
S: tart stone fruit, mandarin orange, tangerine, citrus, some funk and hint of medicinal phenols
T: puckeringly tart, definite mandarin orange and tangerine, fairly light body
O: best integration of hops into a sour beer I have tried to date, far more delicately integrated than hop savant and brighter and more refreshing than Femme Fatale Blanc
