Bottle at home. Thanks Brad! Pours a pale gold, bubbly white head, no retention. Aroma is citrus, white grapes. A bit of funk and Brett. Taste is citrus, light white wine, faint vanilla and oak. Faint yeast, light funk. Really balanced and clean. Light body and mouthfeel. Bubbly champagne like carbonation. A nice beer!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle purchased at Gomer’s Stateline in Kansas City, Missouri. Recommended Best before date on bottom of bottle is 06/2017. The pour is a hazed yellow golden with a minimal white head. The aroma is soft lemon citrus zest, some funk and tart acidity in the back. The taste is lemon pineapple bright citrus, the faint funk leather and the soft lactic tartness in the back. The palate is medium bodied, fine active carbonation and a bit of the sour tart funk in the finish. Nicely balanced and refined sour. Easy drinking beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a cloudy lemony pineapple with fizzy white head that steadily dissipates until the lacing is gone. Smells good too; tart, funky, and citrusy. Tastes like it smells, but less robust, with a pleasantly tart medium-light to medium-bodied mouthfeel. More damp basement than citrus on the tongue. Enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
American sour from a 75 cl bottle served at Tim Webb’s masterclass during Carnivale Brettanomyces. Light gushing upon opening, resulting in a coarse, off-white head dissolving due to badly cleaned tasting glass; colour is a hazy, peachy straw blonde. Aroma is very estery and tart and immediately reminds of the Brettanomyces lambicus this is brewed with; lemon zest, starfruit, dry white wine, old sherry, grapefruit peel, field flowers, wet leather, red apple. Fresh lemony acidity in the onset, unripe grapes and sour berries but still relatively soft and gentle in comparison with many Belgian lambics, somewhat spritzy carbo, very lightly malty underneath but not turning sweetish - instead there is a good basic wheat sourishness in the lead. Finishes quite complex, with drying tartness of course, lemony and refined and a bit puckering, horseblanket Brett flavours and some powdery yeastiness. Nice sour ale if you’re into lambics, elegant, but more a kind of compromise between a farmhouse ale and a lambic than an actual lambic beer. Still, recommended for the sour lovers.
