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. (394 characters)

A- Cloudy orangish-brown, thin white head
S- I am getting more sweet than sour. a bit of salivation from the smell. Faint smell of apricots. Not your traditional SOUR vinegar or funk smell
T- Almost like one of those sour Peach Os. Sweet and sour. Starts really sweet, then move to sour and apricot notes. Proceeds to get sour for just a few seconds then disappears.... strange.
F- Medium body, nice carbonation
O- I think sour traditionalist will be disappointed, but a very approachable sour. Like I said in Taste, reminds me of drinkable Peach O candy. (561 characters)

This is everything I want from a summer beer. Sour, but not TOO sour. Fruity, but not saccharine. Perfect! (106 characters)

A-Cloudy yellow orange. Some carbonation, and a one finger head.

S-Apricots, fruity and not much funk.

T-Similar to the nose, mainly one dimensional. Nice apricot flavor but lacking in the sour department.

M-Lighter, some carbonation, crisp finish.

O-Finally something worthwhile from Tin Man. (299 characters)
