A: Pours this beautiful, hazy apricot color, but with little retention. Very bubbly and carbonated.

S: The fruit is strong. Mango, guava, orange....and it seems like sour apple.

T: I served the beer chilled. At first, it had a very tart, granny smith, sour apple juice flavor. As it warmed, much more milder notes from the mango and guava arrived.

M: Fresh, bubbly, a party in your mouth. Excellent.

This is a lovely beer, but served too cold, it becomes too tart. With Pacificmost delivering most of the thrill, that would be my budget recommendation.

Bottled 12-20-14
Poured into mini snifter

Looks just like flat champagne on the pour. A tiny bit of fizz disappears quickly. The nose and taste are definitely of white wine grapes. Very nice sour.
