Batch early '17

Had on tap at Aptos St. as well as out of the bottle a few weeks later. Extremely dry finish was unexpected. For a blonde quad, I felt this was strange.

Pours a vibrant orange with half a finger of head. Smells slightly piquant, with some brett tartness alongside light Belgian yeast and spices. The taste follows this lead, with an orange citrus flavor overlaid atop apple cider, clove, red wine tannins, and biscuit. Very well composed, and I'm curious how it would age over time.

Glowing orange with golden edges and a thin white bubble layer.

Aromas of apricot, orange and grapefruit give way to flavors of sour apricot, orange, peach, apple with a dichotomous bitter candy element.

Thanks, Sam.

A clear light amber with a dense, off-white head that falls off to a disk leaving thin lacing. The nose is a nice blend of funk and lactic acidity, honey, candied oranges, a touch of stone fruit, mango, some tropical fruit - or put another way, not very quad like. Honeydew melon, cantaloupe, fruity white wine, a touch of mineral, some vanilla and oak tannins are present. Minimal yeast spice. The palate opens pleasantly sour with a nice blend of aggressive lactic acid and a little lime-like lip smacking sourness. Fruity and sweet flavors combine, with raw nectarine and peaches, ripe mango and cantaloupe, floral orange blossom honey and a touch of vanilla. Drying on the finish with a mild carbonic acid bite. Medium in body, this beer is pretty excellent.
