4.06/5  rDev 0%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a cloudy burnt orange color with a rocky beige head; dots of lacing linger

Smell: Strawberry shortcake cut with tart green apples; acetic tones abound

Taste: Acetic green apple sour tones dominate the front end, with vinous oak building; the strawberry is more subtle on the tastebuds than in the aromatics but it arrives, after the swallow; very puckery in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; lots of pucker

Overall: Another nice sour from Almanac though I would have liked the strawberry to have been as present in the flavor as it was in the aroma

I'm not sure exactly how they do it, but Almanac nails the balance of a sour every time. It's never mildly tart or too mouth-puckering; it's juuuust right.

The aroma offers lemon tart qualities with some strawberry and general berry notes.

The beer is medium plus tart up front onto a soft strawberry flavor and a clean finish. Not much or no funk to speak of as the beer seems to be covered by tart qualities.

A wonderful sour from Almanac that stands up to their other brews and great other sour brews.
