Appearance - Pour cloudy orange with nice dense head. Spotty lacing around the glass.

Aroma - The aroma is pretty unique and more like a farmhouse ale than an IPA or sour. Getting a bit of funk along with some lemon and grassy/earthy aromas. There is also hints of grapefruit and slightly floral notes.

Taste - There is tartness just a touch, light floral flavors. There is more sourness in the taste than the aroma let's on but it is toward the front end with more of a light funk/hay on the finish.

Feel - Light side of medium actually pretty easy drinking almost light. soft carbonation.

Overall - I am pretty impressed with this beer, other than the aroma lending to farmhouse it hits the marks with light tartness and some orange grapefruit IPA qualities.

$ 5.50 / 15 oz snifter (Snifter is 16 oz but is always an oz short of filled). $ 0.367/oz at brewery. Served at bar reefer temperature.
Aroma – lightly floral.
Head – small when received, white, creamy, low density, short retention time, diminishing to a three to seven mm irregular ring and a thin layer with rocks.
Lacing – good. Thick partial rings of tiny bubbles.
Body – medium yellow, hazy.
Flavor – Slightly tart and very refreshing although a bit flowery. No malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate – light, watery, lively carbonation.

A very pleasant example of a tart brew, one of the better that I’ve had.

Appearance 4, Aroma 4, Flavor 4, Palate 4, Overall 4.25.
