Warm Up The BusWarm Up The Bus
Notes: Warm Up the Bus, for all the opposing teams who simply no longer have a chance. Once you're down by 50 at the half it's time to pack it up & have the driver "Warm Up the Bus". This fruited sour was made with the finest Florida Orange Juice, Blood Orange, Orange Peel, & Tahitian Vanilla. (Lactose Added)

A: Pours a lightly hazy medium to dark golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising slowly from the bottom of the glass and moderate bright yellow + bright orange + honey + apricot colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall soapy sudsy off-white head that quickly reduces to a medium to large sized patch of very thin film covering just shy of 50% of the surface of the beer and a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Slightly stronger than moderate aromas of tart lemon citrus lacto over the top of light to moderate aromas of slightly sour wheat malts with a light amount of lactose sweetness. Moderate aromas of citrus/orange + citrus/orange zest + vanilla.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of slightly sour wheat malts with a light amount of lactose sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of tart lemon citrus lacto. Finally there are moderate flavors of citrus/orange + citrus/orange zest + vanilla. Overall there is a light to moderate amount of lingering tartness in the finish.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with just shy of moderate amounts of carbonation. Light to moderate amounts of acidic prickliness and a hint of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with very well hidden alcohol (which is fairly high for the style) and enough acidic prickliness to be quite refreshing. Enjoyable flavors that are reminiscent of a creamsicle albeit a tart one.
