Pours a nice bright golden color with a large fluffy white head that has great retention and leaves a lot of lacing.
Aroma is of sour apple, some lemon and maybe just a hint of pineapple. Quite powerful and very enticing.
Taste reveals a lot of sour flavors, a good amount of citrus with a hint of green apple, maybe some grapes in the back, a little yeasty in the finish, along with a slightly woodsy taste.
Medium body with a lot of carbonation. Alcohol wasn't really noticeable so this was very drinkable. Overall, very enjoyable and at the price was a great deal.

A creamy yellow-tinted head condenses to about one finger of rocky froth, which sits on top of a thick, bright but translucent light-medium orange brew. Retention is good, and patchy deposits of lacing are left behind in plenty.
Along with plenty of fruity esters, dark fruits offering both sweetness and tartness, the nose brings some toast and earth. Yeast character is evident and bold without dominating. There's some light funk and a bit of woodiness on the end, while a touch of leaf lingers all the while.
Musty funk isn't overplayed but sets the stage very well. Dark fruits bring the tartness as well as a deeper overripe sweetness, while some softer pale fruits add another dimension. A bit of lemon zest balances off a gentle spiciness. Hops are light but register well, bringing a bit of flora and leaf. Otherwise, it's strongly earthy with a woody dryness underneath for even more balance and complexity.
It's smooth, a bit of movement from carbonation adding just enough crispness as well. The body is a good medium.
