On tap at Whole Foods Brooklyn:

Appearance: pours a pretty, hazy straw-yellow, with minimal white head. Super sudsy and carbonated, just looking at it. Lots of little bubbles clinging to the edges of the glass.

Aroma: lightly puckering, but overall mild for a sour. Some funkiness, but mostly tart lemony scent.

Taste: it's a pretty basic sour, as evidenced by the name, but it's really solid in its representation of the style. Light, with a fair amount of tartness and lactic acid. Lemony sourness, but not overly puckering or anything. A sour for those new to sours, but it was a welcome relief to see at a Whole Foods.

Feel: less carbonated than many sours I've had, but it still stood up pretty well to the flavors. Slightly, slightly sticky.

Overall: this "Simple sour," is very simple, but solid nonetheless.

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