Tart, tart, tart kettle sour. Sessionable , per the style, with an approachable abv that allows for more but a strong souring that's overpowering and dominates the beer itself.

Straw filtered and highly carbonated with a finger of white head.

Smells of cardboard, and some sour, berry notes.

Tastes of rose hips, a hint of elderberries, cardboard, and some floral notes, perhaps from the honey.

Very light body with lots of carbonation. Bone dry and tart.

I got this at the Windsor Brewpub today on tap. Feb 12th, 2019. Unique brew for RR.

One of the best blonde Ales I've had. Great golden color which surprised me because most Blonde ales I've had aren't as dark and had a nice honey back taste.
