Straw yellow in color with a hazy complexion and a fingernail of dishwater white on top. The aroma is pear, green apple, ginger, and some tropical funk. The taste is a burst of tropical fruit with mango, pear, green apple, pineapple, and a restrained amount of ginger (which is so easy to overdo). The mouth is highly carbonated, dry, and crisp.

Rare Barrel continues to simply rock the beer world. I'm sorry that more people that try it don't give full reviews (myself included) because the beers, almost all of them, are generally outstanding and consistently outstanding, Breakfast Time among them.

This one is a golden sour with ginger and it is exactly what you want it to be. Perfectly balanced; just the right amount of spice and ginger in the nose with perfect balance in the mouth and lots of fresh, bright, and almost tangy/spicy ginger in the mouth.

Rare Barrel may be one of only a handful of American breweries doing world class beers. This one, among all of them, is very worth a try.

On tap at Apex. Lightly hazy gold with a thin white head, sour ginger on the nose ...strange but not bad. Sour orchard fruits with earthy ginger and a touch of vinegar. Good stuff.
