Fantastic beer, actually comes close to my favorite Dry hopped sour from the same state. Batch 60. and a touch behind love buzz that share similarities. Highly recomend.

Poured into a Heady Topper stemless goblet.
This amazing mystery liquid from New Belgium's Sour Forest
is ALL OVER THE PLACE.
So many different aromas and flavors...it's an adventure.
It's so tart up front, not sure it's actually beer.
THEN, the payoff...a luxurious, lingering finish of malty sweetness.
A roller coaster ride of deliciousness.
This brew touches all the bases.
Batter up!

Poured from 22oz bottle. The only numbering on the bottle is "140819091", Possibly 08/19/14, so possibly a bit over two months old.
Color is a nice orange-golden body with a thin residual head staying throughout the glass. Nice legging, fairly sticky.
Smells of sour fruit, berries, apples and grass and the taste follows. A little more subtle than I prefer my sours, but I enjoyed the interplay between the Amarillo and Cascade hops and the fruity notes. Very nice. Lots of beautiful citrus notes, plum, raspberries, currants and everything else you would want in a nice sour.
Medium body with a slightly lactic finish. Overall, very enjoyable - easily my favorite from New Belgium. I would love to see them expand their lineup with these styles.
