12 oz can dated 24 July 2013 served in a pint glass.
Doesn't look very good, being a murky yellow brown that had no head after a few minutes.
Also does not smell appealing, but the flavor is actually rather good. The nose is definitely tart but still did not prepare me for the extremely tart flavor; about half as tart as lemon, perhaps. Quite salty, even for style. Unfortunate touch of vinegar.
O: very tart and interesting beer with one of the more extreme divergences I've encountered between smell and taste.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a snifter. Purchased in Myrtle Beach this past weekend, canned 3 weeks ago on 6/16/14.
A - Pours a dull, hazy yellow-orange body with a 2 finger white head that reduces to a layer of foam to leave spotty lacing.
S - Hard to explain.. I've drank multiple cases of this beer and I still can't exactly put my finger on the specific aromas/tastes, you just have to try it! I definitely get lemon juice, citrus rind, some spices, light malt, bready.
T - Perfectly tart, borderline sour, definitely salty upfront.. like yellow gatorade. The follow through has subtle pale malt notes, coriander and clove, and a subtle fruitiness.
M - Crisp, refreshing, light, and easy to drink. The shining point of this beer.
I call this the perfect session beer. If you're into sours, you'll like this as a drinkable brew that you can drink a lot of to get your sour fix, as opposed to having to crack open expensive bombers. Not traditionally funky-sour, but definitely different and definitely good.
