Bottle shared, thanks Jay. 2013 version. Big citrus punch, lemon juice and grapefruit peel, light notes of apricot, quite acidic, some brett funk, long sour finish. Quite a sour fruit bomb, I can understand some may find it too harsh but this was quite delicious to me.

Bottle shared at "Tokyo Ratebeer Dark Tickers of The World Unite or AJB tasting volume 1" event. Thanks Jay! Huge lacto nose with white grapefruit and lemon notes. Extremely tart and sour on the palate with loads of citric acid and lacto. Almost like a white grapefruit juice with the mouthfeel. Intensely dry, tart finish that lingers. Some brett noticeable on the finish. Lots of citric acid throughout though.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Thanks to Kraddel. 750 ml. bottle. Full glass was enough for me. Batch 2. Bottled on 11/12/2012. Bottle nr. 530. Hazy, lightly murky apricot with zero head. Nose is big, lactic, yoghurt, touch spoiled yoghurt, mineral, gastric acid, light vomit. Taste is mineral, lactic, spoiled yoghurt, rotting apricot (fruit is barely there at first, you get some light notes at the bottom of the bottle), mineral, lactic, sparkling, gastric acid taste, very sour lemon finish. Tad sparkling & mineral body. I have had “AC Golden Hidden Barrel Blackberry” & it was delicious but I have no idea what this is or what they were going for. This isn’t how a sour beer is supposed to be. I would think that MillerCoors has enough money, brewers, equipment etc. to come up with something better than this. I do think that a lot of USA concumers will drink anything as long as it is sour. This is a million miles away from Fou’ Foune.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours unclear yellow, no real head.
Smell is sharp sourness ( bleach, even) and of course fruits.
Taste is sweet, fruity ( slightly soapy) some dry wood aspect. An arteficialcharacter to it. Bit harsh. Ok, but nothing more than that

Sample at the 2014 Infected Chimipalooza on 11/01/2014. Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a thin white head that dissipates to a wispy film. Spotty lacing. Aroma of apricots, brett and oak. Light-bodied with flavors of funky apricots, brett yeast and oak. The finish is moderately tart with an apricot aftertaste. Pretty good beer overall, and proof that the big breweries can make a decent beer if they want.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
"Hazy golden orange ale. Smells of fresh apricots & some funk. Definitely has some bugs in the barrel as well as Brett in the bottle. Flavor is quite tart, with nice interplay between sweet and sour apricot. Good wild ale. Abv could be 5 or 10%...super hard to tell with this kid of beer."

Oaky funky citrus sour smell. Grapefruity lemon sour taste. Super tart mild vinegar. Low carb but sharp punch from the sourness
