Bottle received in a trade with Dan. Thanks, buddy. Opened at a share a few weeks ago. Final getting around to reviewing via notes.

A-Murky gold with some spotty lacing. Half finger of white head fades to a ring of carbonation constantly fed through the drinking experience.

S- Lemony sourness. There's hint of some lacto on this, but it compliments the beer well. Also, some grapey, white wine characteristics are to be found lending a crispness to the aroma.

T- Big punch of sour. Some lemony citrus mid-palate, then a wood finish mixed some lingering tartness. This beer almost tastes like Sweet Tarts. I love sweet tarts. Man, this is a relentlessly sour beer, as the sourness refuses to leave the palate.

M- Medium carbonation and a medium mouthfeel. I believe the minimal lacto character adds the slightest bit of creaminess to the mouthfeel, but not enough to make it offensive.

I have yet to have a beer from Side Project that disappoints. However, of the beers I've had from them, this one has not been my favorite. I think I prefer the beers that were blended to make this beer on their own, rather than in this conction. Still an enjoyable beer!
