L - 2-finger dense white head is lopsided, and really only clings to one side of the glass. What kind of alien beer is this? Body is a gorgeous deep orange.

S - Passion fruit? Mango? Some sweet orange in there too I’m thinking. Not smelling much barrel.

T - oh my. Quite tart tropical fruits. I’m sticking with passion fruit and mango. There’s a weird fruit here too that I can’t put my finger on. Familiar but it escapes me. Quite a lot of sourness too. I get rotting fruit in the middle, with a little funk. A bit of tannin, a hint of grape or red wine.

F - medium bodied (heavier than a typical sour) with aggressive carb. Still very easy to drink.

O - Solid in all areas, and right in my wheelhouse.

This beer has been hibernating in my beer fridge for a few months. It is time to bring it out and try. The beer is 47 degrees and served in a tulip glass. A hard pour on the beer produced an off-white head. The head dissipated quickly leaving nothing on the glass. The head is airy and foamy. The color of the beer is SRM 12 a medium amber color with burnt orange hues. The clarity of the beer is clear. Effervescence is visible in the beer.

The aromas in the beer are berries, sourness ( not like vinegar), toasted malt, yeast, caramel, grass, a touch of funk, and a tartness.

The initial flavors in the beer are tartness (probably from Rhubarb, not sure), berries, yeast, toasted malt, funky, yeast and grass.

The mouthfeel of the beer is tart and fizzy.

The mouthfeel of the light, high carbonation, and a full finish.

I surprisingly like this beer. The tartness in the beer has balance. The beer has harmony but not overly powerful.

A - Pours a slightly hazed golden orange with a three finger fuzzy white head. The head recedes quickly leaving some nice soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is lemon, strawberry, green apple, straw and oak.

T - The taste follows the aroma. Lemon, strawberry, rhubarb, straw and oak with a decent amount of lactic tartness.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Soft mouthfeel with a dry finish.

O - Another solid sour from Brewery Vivant. The strawberry adds some nice sweetness that balances off the lactic tartness.
