Batch No. 136.

Pours a murky light orange with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour with wheat, grain, lemon, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour wheat, grain, and lemon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is light and tasty, but the sourness is pretty subdued compared to the "intensely sour" claim on the label.

Serving type: bottle.
