12 ounce can, no dating on it that I could find. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a hazy orange/amber color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent. Aroma is nice but subtle, the brew smells like citrus, orange, apricots, and grainy malt. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also some orange Tang, lime and wheat flavors noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's smooth, coating and easy to drink with a low/moderate amount of carbonation. I think it's a good overall brew, but one that would be better on a hot summer day. But with that being said, I liked it and it's certainly worth a try.

Berlin-style pale ale brewed with Mosaic and Triskel hops. Poured from a can into an Urban Artifact Thoroughbred glass. The beer is hazy orange with a light sliver of white head and average retention. Lots of lactic sourness on the nose. I get vinegar and apple skins.

The beer has a medium-light body with a firm feel and an interesting flavor that combines hops and tartness. Sharp acidity up front with a little fruit (apples primarily), then the sourness intensifies and are joined by citrusy hops. As the hops die back, the sourness comes forward again for a crisp, mouth-drying finish.

Very drinkable and interesting beer. Not super-sour like some Berliner Weiss beers. Also, I like the way the hops complement the sourness and add an extra dimension to the beer. After nearly 900 reviews, it's nice when you come across something new that you don't feel like you've tasted before. Definitely worth a try.

Pours amber in color with a very subtle haze. Aroma of pomelo, lemon, and floral hops. More pomelo and grapefruit, as well as peach, appear in it's flavor. Bready/crackery towards the finish, although it ends clean and free of any aftertaste. Overall, it's sour notes are mild. Tastes like a good mid-summer beer to me.
