750ml bottle poured into a Portsmouth goblet. Batch E!010. Received in trade with Mikeyv35. Thanks!!
A - Pours a bright, cloudy yellow...just a hint of orange. Three finger white head. Mix of medium and small bubbles. Dissipates after a couple of minutes. Some thin, uneven lacing on the sides of the glaas. Very good looking beer.
S - Lots of aroma...very strong..and good. Can detect the sourness easily, but get a lot of fruity, citrusy, bubblegum aromas. Great combination of aromas...really makes you want to take that first sip.
T - Very tart and sour. Lots of citrus - orange, lemon...almost like sucking on an orange Vitamin C tablet. A tiny, little bit of breadiness...finishes very dry. No discernable hop presence.
M - Medium bodied, highly carbonated...prickly, but very fine carbonation. Quite puckering. Very nice.
D - I'd say drinkability is medium on this one. Very good sour...shared the bottle...this was very good, but 1 is perfect for a sitting.

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
