Wow, I wanted to love this beer but it just fell way short. Proves my thoery that US sours are good, but not quite as good as the Eurpoean counterparts.
Poured a pale/straw yello and had nice carbonation. Nice sour beer. Sad to say, that's where it ends for me. I just can't see the rave reviews for this. As a US sour, it is great. Compared to the rest of the world, it is just average IMO.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottle at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn, NY
A: The beer is hazy yellowish orange in color. It poured with a finger high beige head that has excellent retention properties and consistently left a quarter finger high head covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of sourness and oak are present in the nose.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell and has sourness with notes of oak, the latter of which stands out in the finish.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is simple yet is pleasant to sip and savor. It is quite easy to drink and an excellent representation of the style.
Note: Batch E!027
