A: Massive 3 fingers of white head over opaque yellow liquid with good carbonation.

S: Elderflowers, lavender, gooseberries.

T: Waxy flavours of gooseberries with faint flavours of passionfruit and raspberry. The hops do not really shine.

M: Good carbonation but it is kind of waxy.

O: Disappointing. The base kettle-sour isn't bad, but I would go back to the drawing board with the dry-hop on this one. Possibly with a hop like wakatu which has been used before successfully in a kettle sour by Almanac.

Color of filtered lightning. Clean with little head.
Slight vinegar chardonnay aroma.
Smooth and mildly tart - white grape and nicely undercarbonated.
Overall a pleasant and refreshing sour.

Bottle from Benjjjamin.
Nice orange with straw appearance with light haze in the tulip. Lovely looking.
Fine head.Fruity nose. Almost candy store aroma with mix of industrial cleaner.
Neutral ph. Minimal hopiness. Great backbone for a sour. A dry hopping could be the winner.
Overall this brew needs a hop blast to make it consumer friendly, which could have hidden a few off aromas.

Clear yellow with a white head, no retention, initially a bit of lace.

Light sour dough in the aroma, but where's the hops?

Pleasant sourness in the flavour, but could use some more hops.

Well-attenuated, moderate body has a slight acidity, with a crisp finish.
