330 ml bottle purchased during my recent trip to Vegas. I poured this one into my beer goblet after warming for a few minutes from the fridge.
Appearance: A nice crystal clear golden straw with lots of effervescence. A short white head with loads of tiny bubbles.
Smell: Much bigger than the color suggests. Boozy, or at least aromas that are associated with boozy. Oak and light malts, no hops are noticeable.
Taste: A surprisingly dry tart taste. Lemony in it's puckering ability. A touch acidic, all the while being very smooth. Each sips begs you to drink the next sip. There is a cracker character to the malt component. The little hops are simply for very light bittering. The finish is pretty strong and lasts for a while.
Mouthfeel: The body is light but not watery. The intense flavors easily coat the palate. The carbonation is high and spritzy.
Overall: A curveball of a beer. Very interesting and unexpected, I will be on the lookout for this one again.

Nice pale yellow-gold colour.
Mostly sweet cherry-like notes on the nose with slight oakiness. Only a hint of tang. Once you taste it some more there are some funky notes as well.
Quite sharply sour taste up front but notes of fruit and wine-like sweetness balance this nicely. The oak flavour comes in shortly afterwards and lasts through the finish. Funky flavours develop through the oak to the dry finish, balancing everything out with a slight of earthiness.
The carbonation starts with a numbing tingle that accompanies the entire experience from numblingly fizzy and sour to funky and dry.
New to sours and this one seems pretty complex but has some great flavours going on.
