look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

For starters I love the art work on this bottle (received as an extra from @hambone85) which made it peak my interest right away.

Appearance: hazy yellow with 3 fingers of bright white that quickly disappears.

Smell: citrus, yeast, & a little funk.

Taste: just like the smell, citrus, tropical fruit, and funkiness.

Mouthfeel: more carbonation than a lot of other sessions I've had recently m

Overall: I would definitely drink it again.

Bottled nearly 1 year ago. Batch #14 - July 31, 2013

It has been sitting in a closet in Florida for the better part of a year. The temperature never got above 78, or below 60... Let's just say I've been trying to let the sourness speed up with out keeping it in a temp. controlled setting.

Ap - Gold. Almost no head. It seemed like this would have a thick billowy head after I popped the cap and it hissed like hell. There is still a slight hint of lace.

Ar - Dust, tropical fruit, tart apples/lemons.

T - Dry, bretty tartness. Subtle apple, kumquats, and tropical fruits. This is better than I expected!

M - The mouthfeel is a little too thin, oily, and under-carbonated for my liking. Otherwise the beer finishes great and wanting more.
