This beer poured a slightly hazy orange/gold color. There was a small, quickly dissipating white head.
Sour orange aroma up front, followed by some earthy hops.
Strong sour orange taste. A little funk.
Tart and crisp.
A winner!

500 mL bottle. Hazy orange body. Bottle is a slow gusher. Smells of oranges, lemon acidity, oak, and some band-aid chemicals. Tastes much the same. Oranges, bright tartness. Oak throughout. It does have some band-aid here, too. And it lingers a little. Medium light with high carbonation. Everything is really good, save that band-aid flavor is a little unpleasant. It isn’t enough to ruin it, but something’s off.

Bright yellow, 2 finger head that recedes to nothing. Hazy, some floaters (my fault. a bit too aggressive with the pour)
Aroma is sour orange and some big bretty funk.
Flavor is funky, sour orange. And a lot of it.
Super carbonated, strong carbonic bite in the finish.
Very nice and interesting beer.

Beautiful bright orange with minimal head. Not unexpected with a beer this sour but have seen better. Very lactic, funky, orange zest. nice complexity. Great beer that I will get next time I see it. something is slightly off that I cant pinpoint

Pours a hazy, orange/golden color with a finger's worth of soapy head that quickly dies down to nothing.

Aroma is fresh orange, a very modest funkiness supported by some earthy overtones. Nice, clean, but not overwhelming. Promises of good things to come.

Immediate taste is tart - the acidity seems high on that first sip. Very clear taste of orange flesh. No sign of pith nor peel. Definitely funky and earth, but there is also a floral hit mid-palate, maybe orange blossom - can't quite put my finger on it.

Feel is clean and crisp, minimal aftertaste and only a hint of bitterness. Carbonation is pretty strong and it is a bit tingly, but not unpleasantly so. Very clean and refreshing with the bracing level of acidity.

Overall this is a very good beer and I am very happy it was suggested by the beer man at Julio's in Westboro, MA. Good find - would definitely drink again and recommend.

Thanks to rudzud for sharing

Big foamy creamy 1+ finger head fades semi slowly, super hazy murky straw citrus orange color.

Nose is quite interesting, definitely some lambic funk, earthy farmhouse like lemony thing, nice orange like a Valencia or earthy bright citrus, barnyard funk, little grassy straw and little fresh squeezed juice, touch of wine barrel note.

Taste starts very tart, sour lemon and grassy straw malt, little creamy like, into big funk, grassy barnyard funk, big horse blanket funk, with nice orange, tart orange but bright citrus and little lemon, fresh squeezed orange juice, into mild yeasty note but also a little fresh wine barrel notes. Finish flemmy lingering bright tart orange and little funk but also yeasty.

Mouth is med bod, nice Fizzy carb, little flemmy.

Overall really good parts, great bright tart citrus, but little yeasty and funk a bit heavy.

Orange body with bone white head that quickly dissipates to no head. Smells of oak, funk and loads of oranges and orange zest. Taste is much the same as the nose. Orange flesh and orange zest. Moderate sourness and funk. Lots of oak. Light body with low carbonation. Fairly dry body. Crisp snappy beer. There are not many orange wild ales out there. This one is absolutely fantastic.

Bottle from Bert's
Pours a slightly hazy deep yellow with a good sized bubbly white head that slowly dissipates. Big orange and funk on the nose with hints of candied peach and lemon. Bitter pithy citrus flavor with a solid shot of lactic tartness. Mild earthy funkiness in a fairly dry finish. Interesting take on a Iambic style beer, can't say I've ever had one with oranges before. It kind of works, I enjoyed sipping on this.
