4.34/5  rDev +0.9%

A- Pours a murky dark gold with a soft 1 finger off white head. terrific lacing.

S- Quite different from any sour I have ever smelled. crabapple, pear, peach, and even some clove comes through. Interesting that I smell juicy bubble gum. Citra hop and wood barrel also come through. Aroma is divine

T- So acidic. Really kicks you in the back of the jaw with its tartness...like a crybaby. Somewhere along the way it mellows out and finds a sweet fruity balance. Great depth with apple, pineapple, and peach.

M- mid body, slick, and lip smacking dry. Very crisp and refreshing.

O- A clear NB favorite for me, and probably my favorite sour. Complex, tart, and terrific hoppy character. I'd give it a slight nod over Boulevard's Foeder Project #1.
