750ml bottle shared during #bottlecherwednesday at Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach. Poured into a tulip. Golden-yellow slightly hazy appearance with a thin white head that quickly fizzes down to nothing. Aroma is lactic funkiness, citrus, tropical fruit, bready malt, and oak. Taste is tart/sour tropical and citrus fruit, grassy hop bitterness, oak, buttery, and vinous on the finish. Medium-light body, smooth, thin texture, fizzy carbonation, dry finish.

Just a great table sour that would go well with most meals. Champagne like carbonation and complex delicious aroma and flavor.

Fantastic mouthfeel. The way this has been bottle conditioned makes this apparent. One of the better carbonated beer out there. So tasty, I flew in from California to visit the brewery. Life changing experience!

This pours with a gorgeous color and sprite lively thick foam head. The nose is sour and tart with an earthlike mineral and cherry fruit tone.

The flavor is sour, tart and acidic with huge doses of pear and light touches of Apple. The feel is prickly and a touch high in carbonated bubbling.
