Got in a trade with ShowerBeers

A-Clear pink when pouring, cloudy orange/pink in the glass with a one finger head.

S-Funk, grapes, oak yet very floral and grassy as well.

T-Tart and sweet, interesting combination. Lots of floral notes, not sure if balanced or not. Oak and grapes as well.

M-Light, highly carbonated, semi-dry crisp finish.

O-Wow. What a sour. Great to try this. The floral notes were a great addition to a sour.

Appearance- ruby-orange, hazy, muddled looking with a beautiful bright white head that has a slight pink tinge to it when you catch it at the right angle.

Smell- Slightly funky, floral, perfumey, lactic tartness. The smell is slightly muted and doesn't really allow much really stand out

Taste- Mild tartness followed by some citrus and floral hop notes. The floral notes persist along with some funky, earthy qualities on the finish.

Mouthfeel- Carbonation is on the higher side, mouthfeel is fairly light, finishes clean and drying.

Overall- One of my favorite AWA, and despite the high price tag I keep going back for more bottles. If you can still grab a bottle, I'd go for it.
