look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a orange-pinkish color with no head retention.

Aroma reminds me of sour patch kids. Lots of tartness, citrus, and a lot of various fresh fruits. Some mixed berry and peach.

Taste follows the nose: tart mixed berry, peach, grape, and apple juice with peel. A nice carbonation tickle up front that transitions into a slightly watery finish. Super refreshing beer! Mild-moderate tartness.

Overall, great tasting beer for the ABV. Perfect summer beer; thanks to Jason for picking it up for me. See this pairing well with pan seared duck, citrus salad, roasted grapes, and polenta. It gets a 86/100.

On tap. Poured a clear, red color with a small, tan head of foam. It smelled of raspberry, cherry and lemon tartness. Good sour taste with raspberry and cherry as the dominate flavors.

Bottle from Tavour
Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a decent sized white head that persists. Fruity lemony tart on the nose with hints of earthy funk and light clove. Tart and puckering but with a great fruit flavor that I wasn't expecting. Pretty great beer.

Looks like a pink chablis in the glass. Very light, refreshing, fruity. Limited complexity, a little thin on flavor

Orangey-pink hazed beer with a thin but persistent white head. Soft fruit on the nose, mild earthiness. Tart on the palate first, followed by a hit of a surprising peppery flavor next, followed by soft and nuanced fruitiness and mild earthy oak, and finishing with a quenching acidity. Quite nice - it doesn’t linger on the palate and therefore is difficult to dissect specific flavor components, but the end result is a small and quenching ale with some complex and interesting flavor details.

I love sours but this one borders on a big sour for even me. I grew up liking crab apples and that tart taste. This was, for my tastes, to tart.

I met a girl on vacation who said she used to work at this brewery, and hanging with her resurrected my somewhat dormant interest in trying new beers. Then I came home and missed her, so of course I had to go and find their beer. I picked this flavor because everything "rose" reminds me of my dead cousin whose middle name was Rose. So basically I drank this beer out of sentimentality. And it was so expensive, $7.99 for 375ml, but I had to. I can't say it was 'well worth it', because honestly lately I'm thinking craft beer prices are getting out of hand, but I am glad I got it, because it was really good. It looked beautiful in the glass, all pink with nice white fluffy head, had a light taste of roses, which is a flavor I really like. Sour in the most satisfying way, where it feels like it's cleansing my mouth and scratching all the itches. The flavor could be a tad more complex, but it was a very enjoyable beer. I'm ashamed to say I forgot to smell it, and since I love the smell of roses, I will probably have to buy it again (I gave it the benefit of the doubt with that 4 rating). But not before I've tried some other beers by this brand.

My bottle said 4.5% abv, not 5.
