Appearance: Quickly dissipating, eggshell white head, with spotted and crusty lacing. Opaque straw color.

Nose: Baking soda, cherries, and clean wood chips/lumber, and pineapple.

Taste: Sour and perfectly carbonated. A malt backbone that saves your tastebuds. A little bit of vanilla and oak.

Notes: It is very subtle and gentle, especially for a sour. I am not a fan of sour beers, but I found myself more interested in this with every sip.
Perhaps a perfect introduction to sour beers?

Pours light and golden - like a pilsner - into a proper glass at Duckworth's Park Rd location, Charlotte NC. All drafts $3.50 on this lovely Thursday.

Little to no head and slight lacing on this well carbonated brew, smelling a bit of vinegar and wood. Wonderful vinegar tartness. Easily one of the better sour brews I've had - it's well balanced. Great introductory tart brew for newbies. Dangerously drinkable for 7.3%.

Pours a clear medium to dark yellow with a quarter inch head that reduces to half of that and then persists.

Smell is of light citrus and cow barn. Not optimistic at this point.

Taste is acidic up front but it mellows to interesting crisp fruit flavor, apples and citrus.

Mouth feel is light and crisp,with long lasting bubbles.

Overall, I wouldn't need to revisit this offering very often.
