From 375 mL bottle into Anchorage Teku glass.
It's got a nice soft, yellow-orange color with some fogginess to it.
Pick up some tropical fruit with some lemon zest on the nose. Oak barrel in the background. It just smells sour and I anticipate a sour punch.
I was right. Pick up some peaches, cherries, and apricot up front, but quickly gets absorbed into a lemon sour rush. Puckering; definitely more tart than vinegary. Crispier-side of carbo. Zesty. I can tell its aged in oak... little earthiness in the end, but wouldn't have guessed wine barrels.
It's a little too lemony for my taste, but this is a nice sour. True sour heads should enjoy this one. Actually.. I think I might prefer this over RR Beat cause it's got a bit more layers of complexity.
