Enjoyed at Tin Man Brewery in Evansville IN on a flash-flood night.

Appears cloudy gold. Light white head in Tin Man snifter.

Nose a little fruity. Not bad. Subtle.

Taste very nice. Light but full of apricot tartness. Easy to drink and very sessionable warm weather brew. I'd compare to a Berliner Weissbier more than a traditional Belgian sour ale, though. Would order this again, for sure.

Poured murky blonde. Opaque. Frothy head that returns to a film that leaves excellent laces.

Not much in the nose in terms of traditional malts/hops but subtle notes of apricot, peach, grain, bubble gum, and bread.

The taste is super sweet. A little too much for my palate. A little sour in there too. Notes of apricot, orange, persimmon, barley, and lime.

Actually fairly smooth, high carb, light body but a lack luster finish from the sweet.

An interesting ale but not in my wheel house due to the high sweetness. The name is mis leading because the sour is very muted by the level of sweet.
