Looks great! Golden with good clarity and a big white head. Very interesting and unique aroma. Fruity, earthy and funky. Good depth. Tartness leads in the flavor but doesn't overwhelm. Fruity and hoppy aspects play along with it making something, again, very unique. This is nothing like any beer I've had before. Well worth a try.

2014 Bottle shared with friends at home on Oct. 3, 2014. Pours golden, with a bit of slight orange hue, small white head that dissipates quickly. Beautiful aroma of grassy hops, hay, a little funk, some nice citrus and tangerines, and some sweet bready maltiness. Flavor follows the smell, but with much more citrus fruit and sourness. A nice sharp lactic tart here with big juicy apricots and tangerines, and a light grassy hay-like hop bite that doesn’t get in the way of thtis juicy sour brew. Dry finish after the juicy fruits, light to medium bodied, with plus carbonation. This beer exceeded my expectations. What an awesome, awesome sour from New Belgium.
