Tap

Pours light clear golden, white film for a head.

Smells of lemon and apple cider vinegar.

Tastes of very tart citrus and vinegar.

Body is medium to full with light bubbly carbonation.

Very tasty sour ale, great flavor, a must-try for fans of the style.

11.2 oz bottle. Pours clear straw yellow with a medium frothy white head that quickly goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is acidic sourness with some tart green apples and a little sweethearts.

The flavor is lots of acidic tart mouth-puckering sourness with some sweethearts. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a nice acidic sour. It's very sour and a little sweet and candy-like Duchesse, but not too sweet.

Aroma is certainly plenty tart with vinegar and perhaps grapes playing a role here.

Taste is an interesting one. It comes across as plenty sour with a good vinegar taste to it, but there's a tropical fruit aspect to it that others have said they liken to pineapple. Seems about right. Towards the finish I think I even detect a tart grape note. It's tasty and a departure from the red sours.

Sour enough to make it tasty but not overbearing. Different from many sours I've had since most have been red. My favorite?? Probably not. A good option??? Certainly.
