A: pours a clear yellow with a finger of white head that fades into a thin ring with no lacing.

S: Belgian candy sugar and sweet breads up front before a hefty kick of sour and tart fruits, Champagne, sour apples, and oak.

T: huge sourness and tartness here. Sour apples, tart cherries and raspberries, lemons, and limes. Oak and Belgian candy notes underneath. The finish is tart and clean.

M: light body with medium carbonation, this beer is dry and very drinkable.

O: despite not looking like much, this is one of the tastiest and easily accessible sours out there. Super tart and refreshing.

Raul is going to call this the "windex" beer because it is just so damn clean. Now, this is not the best; Raul is not gonna say that this is the "end all be all;" but like Candice Swanapaol washing her windows... Yep!

It's clean, it's smooth, it's tart... What else is there to ask for?

As I am just rediscovering sour beers, and given my love for the pales of this world, it was natural that I try this one.

On draught at the Davis Beer Shoppe, it came with a strong recommendation, one that was more than justified. Crystal-clear pale amber with a thick head and a strong sour nose, it is remarkably smooth, which was quite a surprise. The sour is very much in the forefront, but the slightly hoppy finish is a bit of a surprise.

It turns out that the ten-ounce pour was just right for me. Enough is as good as a feast, as they say.

Poured into a wine taster. The color is clear light golden. There isn't much of a head; and what is there doesn't last long. Love the color; bummer about the head.

The aroma is full of apple with a hint of grapes. Very nice aroma here.

The taste is mostly clean tartness with a hint of sweet vinegar in the finish.

This is medium to full bodied. The carbonation is soft.

I like this one alright and I'd happily drink it again to satiate my wild ale thirst.
