Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a hazy dark orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with malt, grain, fruit, and funk aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour grain, fruit, and acidic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty with a nice fruity presence all around.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy copper body. Big white head. Some lacing and a nice collar.

Smell - Lemony and yeasty. Some oak and acidity. Some faint unsweet caramel.

Taste - Lemon again and very yeasty. Oak and caramel, but not sweet. Pleasantly tart.

Mouthfeel - Well carbonated. Light. Tart.

Overall - It's got that standard Sante Adairius yeast character that overwhelms any subtlety, but that yeast character is nice.
