On tap in Philly. Touch darker than a typical Berliner and way more sour. Almost a meaty orange taste to it. Smooth finish. I really really love this beer.

On tap at Fourth St BBQ in Charleroi poured into a pint glass:

Look: Pours a nice hazy golden yellow to orange with about an inch of head which quickly settles. Nice lacing present with decent retention.

Smell: Lots of citrus notes present with only a hint of tartness.

Taste: Taste follows the nose. Starts out with a slight punch of tartness followed by notes of citrus and lemon on the back end. Not overly sour at all which is nice.

Feel: Medium bodied. Very crisp and nice.

Overall: This is my first dry hopped sour. This was highly enjoyable and drinkable since its not overly sour. This beer would be fantastic on a hot summer day, hint the name afternoon delight. I will be revisiting this one if on tap again!

Murky tan body with a pale bone-white head. Aroma is grassy, sour, hints of lemon water. Flavor is tart, slightly sour, noticeable grassy notes with moderate sour lemon. Feel is medium bodied, with medium carbonation and quenching for a sour. Nice beer that is not too tart, but packs a punch.
