look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
A- Pours a golden/orange color, approaching amber with a soft, light tan head. Large spots of lacing are left on the sides of the glass.
S- Very fresh-smelling. The first thing that hits the nose is fresh, sweet apricots. Notes of peaches and a creamy aroma come through as well. I wasn't able to smell ANYTHING that would suggest that this was going to be sour.
T- Very sour with lactic acid. No other sourness was noted, other than a strong lactic sour flavor. The fruit was far more subtle that I thought it would be, based on the smell. The fresh apricot flavor comes through a little more clearly as the beer warms.
M- Light bodied, effervescent and crisp.
D- A bit of a sipper, considering how sour it is, but overall very good. I think it may have been "sour for the sake of being sour", but I still really enjoyed it.

on tap at the brewery, Portland
Hazy platinum with no head.
Apricot fruit roll-up on the nose with a touch of white vinegar.
JuicyFruit, bright orchard fruit, a touch of funk, lemon zest and a bit of chalk.
Bracing fresh fruity finish and white spice linger.
Crisp, light, no heat.
Champagne-like. White vinegar and Belgian funk hidden under fruit, but still very acidic, in a good way. Probably the most accessible sour ever.
