Thanks to John11486 for sharing this one at my tasting.

Bottled 9/5/12.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy bone colored head that fades to nothing. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour, tart, and funky with some berry and floral aromas. Taste is much the same with fruity and acidic finish. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and super easy to drink.

Poured from the tap at the brewery on September 8th, 2012.

A very rich, hazy, blood-orange colour with minimal head. The smell was very refreshing and sweet with notes of kiwis, strawberries, and flowers. The taste is right in-line with the aromas. Very refreshing kiwi and strawberry, that isn't as sweet as the nose, with a nice floral aftertaste. Slightly tart, but very well balanced with the sweetness and overall very good.

Would I buy it again? Absolutely.

Bottle picked up at their release party titled "Ever Local". Hand-written on bottle says 5.1% abv, Batch #1, Bottled on 9/5/12. Poured into Founders snifter.

A- Pours a hazy slightly translucent pinkish color with a slight yellowish orange hue to it, about a finger of white fizzy head that recedes fairly fast to leave a perfectly flat top, nice carbonation of consistently rising bubbles.

S- Wow the smell hits you right when you uncork the bottle. Smells of strawberries mixed with kiwis and a hint of a floral smell lingering in the background from the hibiscus leaves. There is a considerable amount of tangy tartness mixed with the sweet fruit that makes it's presence known right away, but does subside a little bit.

T- Kiwis and strawberries add a nice upfront fruitiness, the hibiscus lends a little bit of a floral finish that balances well with the fruit, and a pleasant level of tanginess that stays throughout the beer adds a nice component to the sweet fruit flavors. An aftertaste of kiwis and hibiscus lingers for awhile. Hibiscus dominates a little bit more once it warms. Flavors all balance well for a fairly tasty beer.

M- A little bit on the thin side but a nice body for a berliner, nice carbonation, easy to drink.

O- This was a nice surprise from a local brewery that's still fairly new to the craft beer scene. In my opinion this is definitely the best beer they've brewed yet and a nice Berliner. I definitely recommend checking it out if you like sours.

Poured from a bomber into a Night Shift tulip.

A - Pours a deep and thick orange pink, almost like a less transparent pink lemonade. The thin white head dissipates quickly, but some lacing does stick around. All together a bright and pretty beer.

S - Tart and appetizing, almost reminiscent of a Rose or a sweeter Champagne. The aroma also hints at some sweet fruit.

T - Pleasantly sour at the beginning. It's strong but in no way cloying or overbearing. Emerging from the tartness is the Kiwi and Strawberry mentioned on the label. The two elements are balanced well.

M - Extraordinary. Not so thick as to be heavy but with enough of a body to coat the mouth and quench one's thirst. The flavor profile ends with an enticing juiciness that begs for another sip.

O - A great release from the upstart brewery. Apparently they only brewed one batch so I feel lucky to get my hands on a bottle (they were selling it at a local tasting event). Delicious and balanced. Complex enough to savor but refreshing enough to satisfy.
