This beer is on the sour side, but not that sour. However, if I consider the typical "spur" offering from craft brewers, it is on the tart side. I do like my spurs a bit more puckering, which is not to say they should all be that way. As such, this reminds me in tartness of mild Oude Bruin.

A: golden yellow, with limited head
S: has a great sour smell to me. Sour and lightly funky.
T: kinda mentioned above, but mild grain taste then a subdued lemon tartness

@ Busy Bee

Served an unclear orange color with a few sparse patches of foam on the surface. Smooth, straightforward sour nose featuring a nice fruitiness, slight dusty funk, and a hint of wood. Big sour, puckering flavors like juicy lemon and apple with some lactic touches here and there and a sort of dry, musty, funky sharpness. Pretty light in the mouth, super dry, and stick-to-your-gums sour. Refreshing and satisfying.
