Poured into the HF tulip. Pours a bright gold/yellow, slightly hazy. No head and no other bubbles either. A small amount of lacing on the side, though. The aroma is very nice. Citrus, lemon sticks out. A nice amount of sour funk in there. Nice amount of tart lemon and orange peel right up front. Also, very sour for the aftertaste, like biting into a sour citrus rind. Some nice flavor from the wine barrels make themselves known. A slight amount of carbonation. I'm a week removed from having flora with blueberries. I can see the similarities, but can also realize blueberries make this a better beer. This is also older, so probably not as juicy as it once was. The satsuma adds a nice mellow touch of citrus and then rounds it out on the end with a sour bite. Very nicely balanced, although i would like to taste some more of the oranges. I know, should have traded for it months ago, maybe fresh the orange flavor is more prominent. Maybe I'll go check out some past reviews while I finish the bottle. Still, a very nice beer. Super happy with the trade even if it is a notch below blueberry flora for me.
