Bottle

A: Gold color, hazy, with a moderate, uniform white head that quickly recedes into the glass.

A: Passion fruit upfront, light tropical hop notes, followed by moderate sourness and white wine character.

T: Passion fruit, light dank and funk, mild tropical fruit, oak with a moderate but clean lingering sourness with a dry finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Solid; the passion fruit is pretty assertive, but the clean sourness and dry-hopping compliment the beer well.

Pale straw yellow in color withe a quarter inch of frothy off white head on top. The nose is an amazing blend of passion fruit, grassy hops, and woodsy oak. It's hard to describe how perfectly those aromas mesh together. The hop aroma dissipated quickly. I'm tasting passion fruit with earthy light oak. The mouth is very dry from the oak aging and moderately carbonated.

A: Poured into a tulip to a light slightly hazed yellow topped by a finger of dense and soapy white head which slowly fades to a collar around the edge of the glass
S: Smells of light lemony sourness, passionfruit and a little malt with some herbal hop notes
T: Taste is lemony tartness up front with some salt followed by some herbal and lightly citrusy hops and a hint of oak. Slight undertones of passionfruit as well but well incorporated with the other flavors. Swallow is some saltiness, more passionfruit and some light lingering sourness with a little more citrus hop.
M: This beer is light in body but not watery with a level of carbonation which is just below prickly. The beer has a semidry finish as well from the acidity.
O: Overall this one is pretty good. It has some nice flavors and decent complexity. I think it also represents the style well. Worth a try if you like lighter sours.

Poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a mild glossy yellow color with a half finger's worth of quickly dissolving head. Mild sticky concave lace.
The aroma had the sweet to tart passion fruit, fairly bold and up front playing with a sly danky sweet grassy to onion character in the background. Light lemon acidity with a mild funk. Light woody sweet to dry sourness.
The flavor leaned into the sour character initially and developed mild funk and sweet danky character. Also, added a touch of zest. Nice aftertaste of the sour quality punching the lemon, woody and grassy edges nicely.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt good. ABV felt on par. Moderate stickiness but not cloying. Nice zesty non-spicy sweet to funky finish with the passionfruit.
Overall, very nicely done straight up sour ale packing in a ton of other complex features, though it is pretty top heavy in the passion fruit. Give it a little bit and let it open up, it'll impress you.
