Had this at Sour Sunday at Triple Rock Brewing on February 11, 2018. Poured out feint golden color with 2/3" white head that does recede relatively quickly. Aroma of a bunch of lemon and other fruit. Nectarine and raspberry most prominent after the lemon sourness.

Taste was the usual sour affair from Toolbox that they gots down pretty well. Lots of different yeasts and whatnot giving not a ton of funk and whatnot, keeps out of the way of the fruit and the french oak? barrel? The sourness is up there and more reminiscient of a wild ale than a saison. Enjoyable? Damn right. Carbonation was up there as well.

I think if they kept the price on this below $20, I would probably get a bottle and check it out again.

750ml bottle purchased at the brewery in early January, poured into a 16oz goblet.

Pours a pleasant clear straw color. Not much of a nose other than a light vinegar tang. Mouth feel is light and refreshingly acidic with just the right amount of carbonation. I was afraid sitting on it for 4 months might have been too long but from what I can remember it was very similar at the brewery. A very nice sour, would buy again when I get to San Diego, and as a fan of sours I definitely need to go to Toolbox again.
