Hazy yellow, tall quickly dissapating head
Smells of salt, sour cherry, pear, wheat, grapefruit
Tastes of salt, sour apples, tart and acidic
Dry and sort lightly harsh on the tongue
Decent, summery beer. Bright and tart. Definitely could only drink one

Thanks to Ravenforbeer, canned 3/07/18
Pours a decent foamy bubbly 1 finger head that fades at a med pace, bit of lacing, very hazy pale blond color

Nose typical kettle sour, lacto sour funky lemony acidic, tart and bright acidity lemony, little cereal grain wheat, fruity pebbles, background fruity grassy hops

Taste brings a lot of sourness, again typical kettle sour, lacto, bright acidity, little funk, cereal grains, fruity pebble cereal, some lemony and lemongrass with a little funk, mild grassy floral fruity hops, flemmy finish, a bit sticky too, little lemon candy lingering with bready grainy and a bit of bitterness that clashes a bit

Mouth is med to lighter bod, nice carb, big acidity and a bit flemmy

Overall not bad, typical kettle sour with some hop notes but they turn a bit bitter on the finish and clash a bit, otherwise not bad

Hazy yellow with no head
Lactic sour with lemon and orange finishing with a bit of lime and some doughy malt
Flavor leads with lemon, lime, and orange and finishes medium sour with lactic character and more bready, doughy malt
Feel is medium body with dry finish and high carbonation
A stellar hoppy sour - I need to try more of this style!

Pours a hazy cloudy yellow. Thick bubbly white head dissipates quickly leaving no residual head or lacing.

Aroma immediately gives off some sour tart notes - lemon and maybe a touch of lime. Some grainy malts are present on the nose.

Taste follows the nose with tart lemon and lime notes hitting the palate immediately. Followed by grain and wheat malt notes that become especially pronounced on the back end of the finish. Bit of saltiness - really this is quite similar to what you'd expect from a Berliner.

Feel is slightly tart providing a momentary puckering sensation. Moderate carbonation. Semi-dry finish.

Overall a very nice beer from Orpheus - although not called a Berliner its essentially based on that style.

Canned 4/11/17.
Clear gold. Strong pour raised half finger of head which quickly dissapated. No lacing or islands.
Powerful lemony malt odors. Light tropical, wine, yeast. Light apple or pear.
Tart citrus, mango, raspberry, vinegar, biscuit.
Bracing dry mouthfeel smoothes out, little alcohol.
A lot of flavors to tease out. Goes well with cheese, meats. Very enjoyable.
