11.2oz bottle. Pours a golden yellow, sparkling almost champagne like with a small white head. Aroma is of Belgian yeast, biscuit malt with ripe fruity notes. Taste is mildly tart and sour with some Belgian yeast, has a kind of sour fruit slightly vinegary white wine. Palate is a medium body with mild carbonation and sweet tart sourness on the tongue. Finish same as taste with some faint notes of malt on the end gives it slight balance. Overall a bit on the sour side yet a drinkable brew none the less.

Served in a snifter at Bigby's Pour House.

Finally getting to try this old acquaintance from back east once again. It pours a clear lemon-straw topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises tart lemon zest, a pinch of coriander, and some rather light and demure cracked wheat. The taste brings in more of the same, with the even tarter lemon dominating all else in a pleasant WarHeads type of way. The body is a rather light medium, with a light carbonation and a slick feel. Overall, a tasty sour treat, something you don't necessarily come across every day, but something you wouldn't mind indulging in that often.

750ml into a cervoise.

A: Pours a murky gold with a soft white head.

S: White wine vinegar acetic notes, lemony, floral, mildly sweet pale malt, coconut.

T: Mineral, moderate acetic acid, vague vanilla, pineapple, somewhat vinous, apple skin, slight oak, a bit funky.

M: Light-bodied with active carbonation.

O: A nice acetic-focused pale ale. Hits the spot when I'm in the mood.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip, the beer is an extremely bright, straw gold coloring with a thin, filmy white head that starts around half an inch, but settles into a ring on the surface. Aromas are tart and sweet, robust and forward, with notes of apple, toasted grains, and subtle woody highlights. Mouth watering nose. Flavors are bold and tart, with an underlying roasted character, almost char-like. Toasty grain/bread notes noticeable initially, but they are quickly swallowed up by the sour characteristics, with a tangy sweetness that keeps the drinkability high. The aftertaste is more of the woody and char characteristics, but with a solid ribbon of tart still present. Clean, smooth finish with a slight puckering. Very drinkable throughout. Solid brew.
