Intro: A 12 fl. oz. can, with no canned on or best before date “welcome to the party pal”. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy dark orange copper colour with a two finger off white head that had decent retention and left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Tart-ish, tropical juiciness, jammy, fruit compote, lychee, apricot and peach with hints of mango and orange.
Taste: Tart, lightly sour, apricot, apricot compote, half ripe mango and only hints of citrus fruit.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Nice and drinks easy. Could be even more sour considering it has the name ‘sour’ in it, but the tropicalness is refreshing.
