Their motto says it all - big beer from a small state. So glad to see these guys continuing to explore the boundaries of their craft and this is another solid offering from Proclamation.
This is an outstanding and refreshing sour ale that made me happy. Keep up the good work and the destiny of Trillium and Treehouse is coming your way.

Served in my Sour Night stem. Pours a bright tangerine hue with a loose, half inch, sizzling white head the quickly dissipates towards the shoulders. Clarity is slightly hazy. Nose expresses tart citrus notes, a hint of facto and perhaps traces of brine and apricot. Taste consistent with nose with perhaps a bit more brine - not really of much of an oak presence with exception of some residual toasted notes that eventually appear at the finish once the tart quality wears off. Mouthfeel is light in body with a bright, lively carbonation and a pleasant astringency that lightly stimulates the salivary glands. All I can say is that this beer is delicious and totally hits the spot on a 90 degree day. Good show Dave and Co.

Look: Hazy deep orange with a mild white head. Mild activity.

Smell: Tart sour funk, nice light fruit notes, apricots and mild peach, with notes of oak but the finish is more tart.

Taste: Lightly sweet tart sour that fades to notes of dried apricots and nectarine. Then a slight salinity show with a light oak. The finish is a nice balance of tart and the apricots.

Feel: Tart yet the sweetness cuts it a nice bit. Light-medium bodied. Refreshing with a dry finish.

Overall: Another awesome sour from these guys. Has the sourness you crave but not harsh in any way. Maybe the fruit could show a bit more but the sour alone is a great beer. These guys have the Midas touch

Peachy blonde hazy cloud. Not many percirvable bubbles. Pretty mich how a barrel aged sahr is expected to look. Smells a bit funky from yeast. A bit biscuity. Some fruit nose. Tart. Tastes great. Sour. Bitter. Tart. All strong. But oak earth and fruit sweetness are still there. Bubbles mid way but isnt a very fizzy ordeal. Flattens and washes away to leave a little lingerance of what was on the pallet. Delicious. Just as good as harper IMO. well done.

Fantastic, kind of like an aspiring little brother of west ashley. Lacto pouring out in every direction as most of their sour offerings do. They could have dialed this back just a touch as the acidity borders on overwhelming but fuck if this isn't delicious. These guys are taking over Rhode Island and with the ridiculous oz per transaction limit getting a major update they can finally start moving more product and get to growing.

Poured from a 375ml bottle into a teku:

Appearance: pours a glowing orange-yellow color, with an incredibly hazy and turbid body. Carries a short, one-finger head that dissipates after a minute or so into a circle of small bubbles. Leaves zero lacing.

Aroma: lots of complexity here. Starts with the obvious sour notes of lemon, lacto, and tartness, but there's a lot of subtle fruit here as well, as well as a touch of the oak barrel.

Taste: this follows, and exceeds the aroma by quite a bit. Begins with the lacto notes of tart and borderline puckering sour, but from there the flavor really evolves. Soft, deep flavor of ripe apricot, along with the sourness of the unripe fruit. Mild oak to go alongside. This was really, really excellent.

Feel: crisp, but fuller than most sours I've had recently. Body tasted creamier, but the finish was still dry and crisp.

Overall: this was even better than the previous iteration of this recipe, which was Harper 1. Thankful I got a few bottles of this, because it is extremely good.
