On tap at the Better Weather Fest at Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a murky dark orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour, tart, and funky with some wood, vinegar, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with an acidic finish on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is super tasty and refreshing.
