On-tap at the brewery. Served in a tulip. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a light golden or deep straw color with a very soft, delicate, light tan film. A fine sheet of lace was left down the glass.
S: Ginger really shines and dominates. There's also a lightly tart scent, and a hint of golden fruits and earthy, buttery, oak.
T: Really really interesting and unique golden sour profile with a kiss of sweet and spicy ginger. The golden base is light and flavored with stone fruits and earthy straw, and it is slightly sweet. This is balanced well with a sharp tart bite and tingly ginger root herbalness. Oak tannins and ginger cling to my throat after I swallow. Ginger lingers a long with some faint buttery oak.
M: Very dry mouth, dry from the oak and dry and crisp from the ginger. Fizzy carbonation froths up on the palate and is soda-like but much softer. Very scrubbing and refreshing. Like a tart, less sweet, deeper, richer, and more complex fresh ginger ale. Super dry, needed water to drink.
O: Never had another beer like this. Ginger is bright and flavorful but not overpowering. Very balanced and complex. Extremely well executed. Very airy, tart, dry, crisp, and refreshing mouthfeel.
