ACBF pour

A-Pours a dull, dark orange with almost no head; granted its a two oz. pour so who knows.

S-Fairly mellow. Doesn't really smell like it's going to be sour or funky. It smells grapefruity and slightly earthy.

T-Nevermind, this is a tart, sour beer for sure. Not really funky but puckeringly sour. Like sucking the flesh off an unripened grapefruit.

M-Sour but refreshing and natural tasting. Light bodied. The tartness stays on the lips.

O-One of the most memorable beers of the ACBF. The nose wasn't much to talk about but the flavor was far, far better. I really like this one.

A: The beer is clear dark orange amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin head that quickly died down, leaving only a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of sourness are present in the nose along with slight hints of cherries.
T: Much like the smell, the taste is a little sour and has hints of balsamic vinegar and grapes.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little tart on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer was very easy to drink and is sessionable—it has a low alcohol content and isn't really that sour. It would make for a good summer beer.
