473ml can - am I to infer that this might be a really fruity sour ale?

This beer pours a hazy, pale golden straw colour, with four fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and bubbly off-white head, which leaves some decent scattered snow rime lace around the glass as things quickly progress.

It smells of gritty and grainy cereal malt, a strong stoney flintiness, some acerbic lemon/lime rind, hints of sour lactose, and tame earthy, musty, and floral hop bitters. The taste is bready and crackery pale malt, lemon yogurt, white grapefruit pith, some damp minerality, ethereal funky notes, and more understated earthy, leafy, and herbal green hoppiness.

The carbonation is mild in its bored-seeming frothiness, the body a solid medium weight, and mostly smooth, with just a touch of citrus edginess making a minor dent in the veneer here. It finishes off-dry, as the malt and frootiness linger with the biggest brio.

Overall - this is a pleasant enough dry-hopped (I'm assuming kettle) sour, with the citrus character doing well to obfuscate any inherent sour/funky aspirations. Easy to put back, and an obvious gateway brew for those who may be on the fence as to how a 'sour' beer could ever be appealing to anyone. Believe you me, I know.

Yellowish orange with big white head that fades quickly.
Super tart lemon and lime followed by cherry and bread. Lastly a smell of earthy hops.
Very tart bite up front followed by lemon, orange and cherries. Finish is a nice hop flavor.
Medium bodied with a good amount of carb and a super dry finish.
Really enjoyed this brew.

Hmm. Interesting. Pale hasy yellow, moderate white head settles to a partial film, nothing really for lace. Light fruity nose, a pleasant whiff of funk.

Light on the palette. Fruity, slightly hoppy. Tasty brew. All kinds of fruit again and some gentle hopiness. A touch of sourness to offset the fruit. Delicious. A very enjoyable brew. Light and subtle in a good way.

Body is a light straw colour, like juice of a white grapefruit, hazy, capped by a pristine white, airy head that has a couple minutes retention despite it's lack of density.
Citrus hits the nose - lime, grapefruit, tangerine - along with a more subtle sense of exotic fruits.
Taste is just as expected from the scent, like limeade, but white grapefruit is the dominating flavour, complimented by lime and yuzu. Light body and carbonation, goes down like water but isn't watery, although would like a bit more fizz.

This is a perfect summer refresher, clean pure flavours; cider drinkers might like it; pair with ceviche, tacs, or sushi.

From the 16 oz. can dated Nov 21, 2017. Sampled on March 11, 2018.

It pours slightly hazy yellow with a large, foamy white that lingers.

I pick up some nice juicy characters such as lemon, lime, and cherry along with a more subtle breaded and herbal note.

The body was medium and I expected it to be lighter so that was satisfying.

Zesty tart fruit characteristics in the flavor but not as "pucker-up" sour as some can be. The finish was dry. I found this to be an approachable beer in a style that is low on my "must have" list.

473 ml can served cold into a chalice. LCBO purchase for under $4 CDN. Canned February 13, 2018.

Appearance - Pours a pale and exceptionally hazy, peach colored beer, hues of orange and gold. A finger plus of loose light white head sits on top and stays for more than a few minutes. Some traces of lacing cling to the glass long after the beer is gone.

Smell - earthy with some funk of sweaty gym socks, some aromatics of ripe berries, and a general earthiness with some leafiness throughout. Appropriate for the style but not exactly my favorite aromas. Subtle bits of citrus present (some pineapple and mango) on the back end.

Taste - Tart and sour, lemon and pineapple most prevalent with some very subtle berry sweetness. Some earthy funkiness going on too. Well balanced and very cohesive flavors.

Mouthfeel - Medium-light bodied, expressive carbonation, tart and slightly drying finish. On point.

Overall - A very nice foray into wild ales for Collective Arts, certainly enjoyed this and look forward to what's coming next from this wild stream of ideas they seem to have.
