From a growler I filled at the brewery just a couple of hours ago. I'd never had a sour beer made with smoked malt before.

Pours a cloudy straw color with a bright white head that quickly reduces to a ring in my glass.

Smoky and tart aroma. I can certainly say I've never smelled a beer like this one before.

It's tart and refreshing with a good smoky flavor and hints of citrus zest. Certainly a flavor that would be an acquired taste for most.

Nice almost puffy body, probably thanks to the wheat malt.

A very different beer from the IPAs I've been drinking, and a nice diversion. I will certainly have to go back to Rapp Brewing Co. (650 characters)

650 mL bottle poured into a taster.

Appearance - Hazy pale yellow. Small fleeting head. Very thin collar.

Smell - Grain is most prominent. Slightly acidic. Faint and well incorporated smokiness.

Taste - A little fruity. Touch of apple. Tart. Grainy. Less smoke. Subtle smokiness.

Mouthfeel - Light and grainy. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Interesting sour. I don't get a ton of smoke, but it's a neat touch. (415 characters)

Went to Rapp instead of Dundein brewery because I heard their Gose is awesome. It was, but this was the stand out beer of the day. It's a smoked sour. Yeah...

Appearance: Pours a typical berliner looking color. Got it in a flight so no real head.

Smell: Smells really smoky and sour. You get the typical sour lactose tartness aromas but it's also smoky. Super interesting.

Taste - Taste mirrors the nose. Interesting and unlike anything I've ever had.

Mouthfeel: Typical sour mouthfeel.

Overall: Probably my favorite beer on tap the whole Florida trip. I hope they bottle this again when I'm down in December. If not, I'm getting a growler next time. (659 characters)
