Picked up a can of this at Julio's. Batch 001

A - Poured into slightly hazy golden hue with a thin half finger head that faded quickly to leave a light halo and wisps.

S - Aromas of light citrus, blood orange peel, light mineral notes, slight malts, little bit of crackery wheat. Little bit of tartness.

T - Taste is similar to the nose. Solid blood orange notes with some lighter citrus qualities. There is more of the mineral qualities. The tartness is quite mild and pleasant. Not much in the way for malts or grains, just a lightly tart sour.

M - Mouthfeel is pleasantly carbonated, crisp, lightly flemmy.

O - Overall this was a decent wild ale, could use more blood orange and the mineral notes were slightly off putting.

Serving Type: Can

Really solid for what it is, low abv sour that's not too tart, not too sweet, super easy drinking.

Bottle.

A: Moderately light blood orange, citrusy notes coupled with light salt and sourness on the finish.

A: Light straw color with a light haze, and a very thin head that quickly forms a ring around the glass.

T: Moderate blood oranges, followed by citrus, light tropical fruit, a touch of malt sweetness, with a clean, moderate sourness with lots of lacto through the finish.

M: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Tasty; using oranges in sours is not very easy, often times the oranges taste too sweet and candied for the accompanying sourness or the oranges impart an off-putting bitterness. Evil Twin does a great job of using the orange aroma and flavor with a clean moderate sourness, full of lacto tang.

Undated can into pint glass. Pours a urine-colored orangey-yellow-straw with a brief and fizzy head that vanishes instantly. Taste is reminiscent of Mike's Hard Lemonade. Woof. Maybe I'm just not a sour guy. Drain pour.
