4.14/5  rDev -5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Hazy golden honey-orange. Paper-white head with impressive retention.

S - Similar to Dogpatch (i.e very sour and a little funky), yet with faint apricot presence underpinned by a thin layer of honey-sweetness.

T - Very sour (moreso than dogpatch). Refreshing, yet any true fruit presence is overwhelmed by the high level of acidity. A little funk is detectable as it warms.

M - Light body with medium carbonation. Fits nicely with the flavours.

O - If you prefer sourness over fruit presence, you'll love this. Not my thing, although I can appreciate its qualities.

Serving type: bottle
