Appearance- Light colored head quickly rises and falls. Noticeable lacing. Small ring of head remains.

Smell: Sour apple smell, some vinegar, some citrus, some hay.

Taste - This is sharply tart and sour. Probably as sour as I would want to get in a beer (my preference). But the taste is so clean and crisp. Taste citrus, lemon, grapefruit, vinegar, some apple wine flavors. They all work well together, the sourness dominates.

Mouth Feel: Nicely carbonated, light, clean, tartness lingers on the tongue.

When I want sour, this would be a great go-to beer. Perfect on a hot summers day. A little too sour for me to drink in large quantities, but so refreshing. I think that this is a great representative of the style.

12 oz bottle into pint glass - Part of "Sour Power" six pack

A- Clean and clear, pale yellow with thin white head
S- Tart... saliva inducing, like green apples and a bit of wine vinigar
T- Just like the nose advertises, this is tart like green apple with a bit of vinigar. Maybe white grape peels too
M- Thin, but fine

O- Very nice sour. Much better than the rest in the "sour power" sixer.

Poured from a 330 into a standard pint (the tulip was dirty and I was lazy). The light haze in the gold was lovely. The aroma offered a hint of the sour to come with some citrussy character from a hoppy beer. But the taste was just a wonderful level tartness that was like nothing I had encountered. This is the beer that set me off on a long run of sours. It is therefore my benchmark since it was my first sour. I may revise once I have had more from this style, but this will be a repeat purchase.
