In a 4oz taster glass at Sierra Nevada Beer Camp SF

A: Clear like a pilsner, slight haze but not much. Straw color. Significant head, reasonable carbonation for a sour.
S: Funk, grass, earthy floral aromas. Mild hints of citrus.
T: Follows the nose perfectly. Gives you some nice tartness that melds nicely with the funky/earthy elements of the beer.
M: Light in the mouth, typical of a sour in being there and gone without the heavy feel.
O: Great sour, doesn't blow me away but it's deftly a solid choice and very enjoyable.

On tap at the 2016 FWIBF. A pilsner aged for 9 months in sauvignon blanc barrels with sauvignon blanc grape juice added. Tart, refreshing, delicious! Another knockout sour from the folks at RR!
