Poured into a tulip glass. Poured a golden orange hue with quickly dissipating head. Aroma of citrus fruits, lemon, orange, kumquat (obviously). Taste is crisp, dry orange/kumquat right up front. A very tiny bit of sweetness that off sets the tartness. Wonderful brew by Crane Brewing.

Pours a foggy orange with constant bubbles fizzing to the top. Head forms white in color and disappears quickly per the style. Aroma is a zing of kumquat, citrus, and sour. Flavor profile is a tongue twisting sour, with kumquat, and a little citrus mixed in as well. Mouth feel is fizzy, bubbly, and medium-thin. Overall, kumquats and lactic sour are the story of this beer, or more so, lactic sour and kumquats. Tasty, but polarizing.

Served in a Crane Teku glass from the bottle.

Hazy straw yellow with dense white head. Fruit on the nose is very prominant and welcome. Taste is citrus with some sour, yeast notes. Medium body and carbonation.

Gold in color with excellent clarity and vibrant carbonation bubbles. There's no head on top. The aroma is of ginger ale to lemon in nature. I'm tasting a ginger to lemon flavor along with pale wheat. The mouth is very carbonated with a very refreshing edge.

Thanks to Jeff for this one. 750ml capped bottle into a Surly teku. Shared with schen9303.

Great looking beer. The head, the lace, the clarity, the legs... all there. Nose is a little awkward. Hints of soap, lemon, sugar and mint. Weird but not bad and hella aromatic. Beer opens lemon zest, lemon peel and mint. Very bright with a nice, creamy acidity in the middle. Some tea, basil and a touch of ginger also. I've never tasted anything like this. Pretty impressive. Body is light with huge amounts of carbonation. Prickly and lively in the mouth and goes foamy and aggressive. Real drinkable with an oily, slick finish.

The first beer I've had from Crane and I have to say I'm pretty impressed. Looking forward to what else they have to offer!

Very nice beer. Tart and mild funk. Highly crushable. Pours a deep gold, smells incredibly citrusy. I don't have a great grasp on what kumquats taste like but this is well done.
