Pours hazy orange with about two fingers of lingering, fluffy head. Spicy, lemon and stone fruit on the nose. Taste is tart green apple and some spices with grassy hops on the finish. Super dry and refreshing. Pairs great with food.

L: Pours hazy golden tea color under a 2” almost meringue like off-white foam cap that persists and clings to the glass.
S: Spicy, tart, lemony nose with traces of hop and light funk.
T: Achieves a balance between fruit, spice and hop bitterness with a moderate wild yeast funk.
F: Very fine carbonation feels soft in the mouth. Medium to medium light body.
O: An interesting, well made sour ale with an assertive bitter emphasis.

Big head. Murky golden color. Sour fruit, some brett, maybe some coriander in the smell. Light and refreshing. Sour plum flavor. Tasty.
