Appearance: 4.0

Transparent golden, almost cider colored. Slightly fizzy head.

Smell: 3.25

Sour and tart with light fruity hints.

Taste: 3.25

Strong sour taste that jumps out, due to the sour taste the other flavors are difficult to identify.

Mouthfeel: 3.25

Sour and almost juice like with hints of fruits. The fruit notes resemble a green apple. Light beer with light carbonation.

Overall: 3.25

First sour beer I've drank, not the type of beer I would normally drink, and not quite sure I'm a fan of sour beers. This is a light and very sour, slightly fruity beer.

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.
