From a 750 ml bottle (bottled July 29, 2015) to a tulip.

A-The beer is quite murky and light orange-yellow in color like you would expect. There is no head despite my slightly aggressive pour (and high elevation). The beer is still in the glass and appears a bit flat.

S-The aroma is very tart; almost downright sour. Sweet tarts come to mind. The fruit flavor, however, is very apparent with nice apricot smells. I get a little bit of funkiness and some oak, but the sourness overpowers most of the subtleties.

T-The taste is similar to the smell. Lots of acidity with a little hint of toasty oak and a mild dose of funk. This may be the most sour Casey beer I have tried to date. It is good, and the apricots show nicely, but it doesn't live up to the complexity of his best beers.

M-The beer is damn near flat. (Sad face). I know that Troy had issues getting this one to carb up, and I think the lack of carb really hurts here.

O-I think I, like everyone else, was really excited for this beer. A Colorado Fou Foune! But this one just isn't there. It looks, smells, and tastes good, but it lacks the complexity of Casey's best fruit beers and the lack of carbonation really kills it for me.

750 mL bottle. Hazy yellow body. Smell is sharp apricot and lemon acidity. A bit of burnt rubber. Taste is quite sour. Sour apricot. White wine. Oak. The burnt rubber flavor isn't as strong here, but still pops up in the finish. Light body with an aggressive sourness. While this one is better than the others from The Cut series, it still has some unpleasant flavors.

Bottle: Poured a hazy yellow color ale with a medium size head with limited retention. Aroma of tart and sour notes with some oak and light fruity notes. Taste is a mix of tart notes with some oak, some acidic notes with some light funky notes and subtle notes of apricot. Body is about average with OK carbonation. Interesting and complex but lacking some attenuation.

The low carbed version. Low carb is definitely noticeable.
