Purchased during a business trip to SF and take home to NC to sample with my wife.
Golden and hazy with no head. Nice fruit aromas and flavors. A mild tartness that asserts itself without overwhelming. A release of tiny bubbles as it hits your tongue.
A nice overall balance of fruit and tart. Tasty.

4.11/5 rDev -1.9%
A: Light, grassy. Head disappears completely after about 20 seconds.
S: Pluots, apricots, apples.
T: Stone fruit, but it's subdued. The sourness is a tinge overpowering.
F: Medium bodied. Nice sour tang.
O: Very enjoyable and solid sour, which I've come to expect from Alamanc. But it lacks the complexity of their other outstanding sours such as VotHD. I'm planning to age a few bottles and try periodically to see if time tempers the sourness which should allow the pluot fruit to shine.

S: That familiar Almanac scent; some vinegar, some lemon, a bit of saison funk.
T: Very fruit forward but dry. The pluot really shines through. Its not particularly sour, closer to a berlinerweisse, but still quite dry and flavorful.
M: Crisp, dry.
O: This grew on me after a couple sips. While I prefer some of their more sour offerings, this is yet another excellent brew from Almanac.
