Picked up a 12oz bottle on a whim
A: pours an effervescent golden color with half inch white head. Appearance reminds me of other sours including temptation and sanctification.
S: a crisp, musty funk characteristic of sour ales. Citrusy, with a hint of oak.
T: wow, was I impressed with the first sip! This is a real sleeper sitting on the shelf. Effervescent, sour and citrusy at first, after the swallow you can taste the hints of oak and pale ale birth. While some sours begin to taste better only as they warm, this beer is great right of the fridge and stays great throughout the warming process. As you near the bottom of the glass, the kamikaze and barrel aging become more apparent, and then basically smack you in the face on the final gulp.
M: tart, slightly puckering, effervescent and crisp
D: one of the most drinkable beers I've had. Refreshing and delicious. I will always have at least 3 bottles in my house at all times.
