A- Pours a murky dark orange hue, head is crisp white packed bubbles that dissipate to a thin layer, moderate lacing
S- Fragrant bouquet of sour and tart fruits, mostly green apples and pears, some citrus and cherries, pepper and spice tones
T- Initial taste is sour cherries and tart apples, follow by flavors of citrus, oak, and cinnamon, the cacao is advertised by very faintly recognized in the sour finish
M- Medium-bodied, smooth and full texture, ample carbonation
D- Amazingly smooth beer, unfortunately the flavor falls short of the fragrant aromas, this is an intriguing seasonal from JP that has a lot of promise but doesn't quite deliver

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
