Notes: An embrace of candied citrus, juicy melon, and stone fruit lead this tropical sour, followed by a golden yellow pour and pure white head. Held together in tandem, to create an incisive yet playful tasting event.

Hazy pale yellow-orange straw color. Poured a very tall head that slowly collapsed in firm peaks, leaving a lot of lacing. High flow of tiny bubbles from the bottom of the glass.

Smells of a mix of fruit; some sweet and some tart. Slightly spicy. A light malt base. There is a faint background barnyard. Swirling the glass kicked up a stronger barnyard, but still relatively lights.

Sweet and tart mix of several fruit families. Some citrus, some peach, some melon, and some pear. A more firm sour takes hold after a few seconds. Finally some malt and a light yeast show up to remind you that this is really an ale. The entire flavor mix fades out in the aftertaste, leaving a mild bitter.

Some tongue tingling as it quickly grows to a large bubbled foam. Feels a bit more like a soft drink than a beer. Medium-low body. Very slightly astringent with the aftertaste.

The flavor explosion was not expected. It wasn't an excess of flavor so much as an excess of flavors. You could spend hours tracking down all the fruit flavors hidden in this. However a complete absence of information on the label and the brewer's web site and media feeds made it really hard to figure out the intended style. This could have been a "Fruit and Field Beer", but I'm thinking no fruit was used in the process, leaving my best guess at "Sour - Gose".
