Had this a few years ago up in Bend, was able to score a bottle as well. That bottle drank very nicely alongside the pool. Nice gold and yellow appearance, decent clarity, not a lot of wheat running around in the beer. Aroma smacks of lactic lemon sour and mild grain.

Taste, very nice, on the upper end of the sour scale for style, but not at all a problem, very nice. Super clean, not a lot of barrel or funk if any to this one. Neat little addition of hibiscus and pomegranate? Super light body, the tartness has just enough malt/wheat/barley to not come off as overdoing the sour and fruity aspect. Its refreshing and crushable. Very solid choice for summertime. Or outdoor activities.

22oz bottle poured into a teku

A- pours a deep golden color with a foamy white head that has good retention with some lacing

S- smells of tart lemon, toasted wheat, pomegranate and some floral notes

T- fruity and tart up front, nice balance of pomegranate, lemon & toasted wheat. Clean finish with some floral notes on the linger

M- light body with bubbly carbonation leads to an effervescent mouthfeel and a crisp finish, high drinkability

O- very good, thirst quenching

Pours a thin head on a hazy straw to red colored body.
The aroma is mildly sour strawberry and pomegranate.
The taste starts slow and builds to a nice tart pomegranate flavor, a little grain. Great balance.
The texture is crisp.
An outstanding beer. Perfect for hot days.
