Got a little pour from Anita at Great Fermentations. Thanks!
A light brown color with some auburn notes. Quite a bit of foam and carbonation, as it wanted to foam out of the bottle. Smell was really neat, with sour beer tang, a bit of spice (maybe cinnamon) and some richness from the cocoa and brown malt. The flavor is equally complex, with a fair bit of sourness and a pretty dry finish. Some pineapple notes in there, too. Mouthfeel is pretty light and zippy. Overall a neat beer. Very interesting ideas that really came together well.

On tap at Winos in BG. I had this beer a while back, but just getting around to entering the review. Boring day at work.
A. Light mahogany with dark amber hues. Translucent. Poured a thick, fine bubble egg shell head that retreats to a frothy rim. Strong laces. Healthy head.
S. Traditional JP yeast. Neutral oak, light malts. Bretts.
T. Medium to light tartness. Medium roasted malts. Neutral oak. Fairly simple flavor.
O. Smooth, medium body, medium body.
O. This is a very straight-forward, lightly sour ale. I usually pass on browns, but this is not your typical brown. This is a sour, no doubt. This has session written in BIG LETTERS. I go for this every summer, but this can be enjoyed any season.
Serving type: on-tap
