its neat to see some new cigar city flavors coming into colorado, i hope its not just for gabf this week but a sign of more to come. the core stuff just isnt that exciting to anyone anymore, so its nice to see some new ones coming around! this is a neat beer, and i wish it werent quite so sweet, but its pretty well done. the oranges and limes taste natural to me, and contribute a bright acidity of their own to the beer, which goes along well with the bacterial sourness in here, not super clean, but pretty properly refined as front side sours go. more lime than orange for me, zesty and even a bit perfumey. its quite salty as well, i can appreciate it all the way though, and it seems to make the beer more substantial, like it calls up the malt body a bit and seems to extend the fruit, more than just an accent here, this is downright salty as they go. drier would be better, but i like all the body and i think the sourness is right on, its nice with the brine, and refreshing for being so flavored. this is the kind of beer i think of when i think of cigar city, its very florida and pretty innovative. not sure i could drink a ton of it, but they have done a nice job with these flavors for sure!

Sample had at exhibit ale in Lawrenceville GA.
Bright yet light golden cloudy wheat, lime and citrus to the nose, light body, very close in making you think margarita, very interesting

A: Zippy lime, citrus, and salt, nose is redolent of a margarita.

A: Light golden color, super hazy, effervescent, with a thin dense white head that quickly forms a film across the glass.

T: Lots of zesty lime with no accompanying bitterness, clean moderate sourness and a light salty finish.

M: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Awesome; the beer’s aroma and flavors are very close to a margarita. It has a great lime aroma and flavor without being bitter. The clean sourness and light salty finish, make the beer super refreshing and easy to drink.
