On tap at Ithaca Beer Company in Ithaca, NY.

Pours a hazy gold, with a quarter inch of head, and not much lacing.

Smells like hay, lactic acid, and a bit of cranberry. Smells pretty sour.

Tastes less sour than it smells. Quite tart and refreshing. A little bit of cranberry is noticed, some white grape too, green apple.

Light bodied, good carbonation, crisp sour mouthfeel.

Another example of me getting more into sours, this was pretty good.

Not much of a head and it settles to no bubbles or lace. The liquid is dark orange-pink.

The sourness is reminiscent to sour cherries.

Tartness is the centerpiece of this beer. Only in the swallow do I detect the cranberry flavor. Lowly carbonated, this seems more full than it probably is. Long citrus like aftertaste. In the midrange of the sour beer offerings.
