On tap at Seven Lakes Station, zesty grapefruit-peeled orange rind bittering gains mild white-peppered herbage, wavered piney respite and earthen barnyard desiccation over honeyed pale malts (for latent followup to 2015′s Model #1). Wispy brettanomyces yeast souring stays subtle despite wild ale styling.
On tap at Ambulance, sour lemon-candied Pez tartness rallies round cinnamon-spiced vanilla sweetness, mild black currant bittering, strawberry rhubarb piquancy salted green grape pucker and oaken vanilla tannins to its sugary Graham Cracker spine for perplexingly offbeat gose-like abstrusity.
Arid carbolic nature sucks out some lemon-salted sour fruiting and dry Sangria appeasement of pallid sour ale. Leathery green grape esters and subtle blueberry-strawberry adjuncts flutter blandly.
Thickly tart intensity magnified by pineapple-juiced pink guava, papaya and pomegranate sourness to contrast lactic-doused marshmallow sugaring (and piquant strawberry rhubarb snip) in Sour Patch Kids candied manner.

Eccentric green glob-hazed sour ale lets salty lactobaccilus acidity infiltrate puckered blue raspberry rasp and tangy orange-tangerine juicing. Limey sorbet tartness seeps into Sweet-Tart candied berry compote finish. Uniquely designed lactose-driven gooey green gunk.
