One of my favorite beers.

On tap at the brewery in a goblet. Would prefer 16oz option.

A: Hazy, light yellow, small froth that's not retained long.
S: Lemon, lemongrass, grape, plum.
T: Lemons, grapefruit, plumish.
M: Well carbonated, light body.

Overall, the best sour I've ever had. Starts tart, fades fast into thin, refreshing citrus with a mildly sour finish. Outstanding sour beer.

Wish it was a little more sour! But it is perfect for a hot summer day

I had this on tap at Strand in Astoria, NY.

Hazy lemonade color.

The aroma has a sweet sour lemon with bit of wheat and funk.

The flavor follows with a Warhead lemon flavor, slight gentle malt. Super refreshing. Very tart with light sweetness. A bit more sour than 1809. It has a less wheat and calm characteristic, but more like a lemonade.

Light body, gentle finish.

This is a super refreshing wonderful beer. Of saisons, hefes, and summer styles, this is what I would love to drink. Granted, I would like a wheat hefe with its malt maybe sometimes, but this really pushes the other way and is just lovely.

Yes! A sour from The Chief! How I miss this man at ithaca but I love what he is doing at Peekskill thus far.

A- simple sour pours a hazy straw yellow with a nice head of white foam that quickly crackles down ever so slowly. Some spotty lacing on the edges shows up while the golden yellow body cannot be ignored.

S- certain wheat, Brett, citrus, and slightly herbal scent. A light clove/banana ester scent is slightly present. Very yeasty and bready them too. It's one of those enjoyable scents that finishes with a dry aspect as well

T- a great initial outlay of citric sour flavor captures the beginning of the taste experience. Some wheat and and very tart flavors emerge as that are outright tasty. Buttery and yeasty flavors coate the palate. Dry finish with a sweetened wheat flavored finish

M- carbonated tart flavors painting the palate

O- such an enjoying beginning to a tart brew that chief will build upon. Really like this and hope its year round!

Refreshing and crisp sour.
Poured into a PB pint glass, golden straw color and clear. No head after a few minutes and no laciness on the sides of the glass.
Wonderful full bodied sour, maybe a bit of malic acid taste, could also be lactic acid taste. In any event, it's kind of like the stuff they sprinkle on those super sour gummie worms...
