Dated 11/28/12.

A: A very, very cloudy pale orange. Lots of fine sediment. Tall frothy and fizzy white head. Head sticks around for quite a long time. Big fluffy rings of lacing.

S: Lightly tart and fruity aroma. Citrusy with some pear perhaps? Citrus rind and funk when swirled.

T: Tart citrus and lots of it. Not quite full-on sour but close. Very lemony but maybe some orange peel in there too. A bit funky in the middle. Very light and crisp bready/cracker malt in the finish. Mild, drying citrus peel aftertaste.

M: Higher carbonation. Decent medium body.

O: Ahh, one of the best sours I've had. Had temptation last night but this is way better. Not as sour, not as wine-y. Very crisp and refreshing. Not as complex but it works well. Nice refreshing tartness. Really ups the drinkability. Not overpowering either; well-balanced. Really well made.
