Received a bottle for Christmas. Just getting around to cracking it in March 2011. I visited the brewery back in July 2010 and sampled this, as well, on tap with my brother and nephew prior to a tour with the owners.
FYI - The beer is bottled in an "Aluminum Bottle". Very neat concept, although its been done before but I'm not sure in a 22oz size. The bottle did a rather good job of keeping the remaining beer cool throughout the sampling since I finished the entire 22oz in one sitting.
Enjoyed in a DFH Signature Glass.
A - Pours a translucent, golden honey color. A one finger, foamy but not creamy head upon pouring. The head quickly fades to a thin film on top of the beer. Little to no lacing on the side of the glass.
S - The smell does not offer much in the aroma department. Slightly sour smell with a hint of sweetness.
T - A tangy, slightly sour taste with a strong malt presence. Not much hops present. A slight caramel sweetness is also present. With an unknown ABV, hard to say say if the alcohol is well hidden but it isn't very noticeable regardless. Not bad tasting but not fantastic.
M - A rather high amount of carbonation. A rather thin beer. A sour taste lasts after drinking.
D - I think this is an OK beer that you could probabaly drink all night if you were really into it. It's just not my style so I probably won't seek it out again.
Overall: I really like the attitude of the two owners I met on my tour of the 16 Mile Brewery. I liked their Amber Sun but this brew just doesn't hit the mark for me.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, some floral notes. Taste is biscuits, malts, some floral hops, a mild sweetness, easy drinking. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a refreshing beer.
