Pours a light golden color, slightly hazy with short-lasting head. Aroma of pilsner malt, slight melon and cucumber, euro hops, light juniper, sour citrus. Flavor is on par with the aroma with more melon and cucumber coming through as it warms. Not a punch in the pace sour, more like sucking on a lime that has been soaked in water. Feel is light carbonation is med-high. Overall not bad, but would like it to be more sour. The Tequila BA variant is better and more complex.

Another awesome beer thanks to rudzud.

Decent fizzy very big bubble small head fades fairly quickly, hazy straw golden tan color.

Nose brings bright fruit, nice tangerine and little melon, some cucumber bright cucumber too, little peachy note, some doughy grainy blond notes as a base, very faint juniper note with a tangerine zest.

Taste brings more fruits, bit a musty earthy flavor like juniper earthy fruit, and some citrus zest, and some cucumber. Plenty of juicy fruit, tangerine, melon, little melon but not a ton. Some earthy gassy hops too, just a little, that offsets the grassy grainy blond malt. Plenty of zest late, with more cucumber, finishing dry and a fair bitterness, earthy bitter juniper and earthy gassy hops I think.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, nice carb, little sticky on finish.

Overall very nice, light base blond that holds up, with great melon, nice tangerine and citrus, nice cucumber, and thankfully light juniper. Enjoyable and tasty.

Draft. Billed as a cucumber melon sour. Poured a golden opaque yellow with a finger of white fluffy head. Smells of cucumber, melon and a little hops. Tastes a little sour. Much like a dry white wine. Nice dinner brew. Finishes clean and sour. Not picked up sour but sour. Interesting beer. Try it. You'll like it. Definitely get cucumber and melon. Lemons make it sour.
