bottle share at hill farmstead’s harvest festival. hazy amber, some floaters, with a decent off-white head and retention. cherries, wood, brett - some funk indeed, yeasty, light acidity, light toastiness and a some sweetness, never cloying. floral and citrusy - light but fairly present hopping. average to soft carbonation, light ot medium body, decent herbal-citrusy and earthy finish. not a big beer, not really a sour, but enjoyed it!

RoyalFlushing (322) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - AUG 11, 2012
On tap @ Stags Head. Poured a light amber with a medium fluffy white head and excellent lacing. Aroma includes grass, slight Brett funk, oak, and sour cherries. Taste begins with earthiness and funk of yeast followed by well-balanced tart and sweet cherry flavors and a hint of vanilla. Wonderful fizzy carbonation produces a great mouthfeel and flavors linger on the palate long after each sip. Tame, very drinkable sour.

daknole (9142) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Cloudy apricot orange pour, fluffy white head. Thanks to LtDan for the share! Good guy. Aroma is sour, some citrus sourness, lemons, sour cherries and unripe stone fruit. Flavor is certainly sour, cherries, yeasty funk, light vinegary notes. Pretty damn nice stuff!!

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Draft at the Pour House in Westmont, NJ. Pours a hazy dark amber/copper color with a one finger frothy off-white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring.  Spotty lacing left behind. Earthy, funky aroma with good lactic funk, oaky barnyard/musty horse blanket character.  Also a but vinous with dark fruit, musty, funky bugs and earthy oak.  Strong acetic solvent quality appears when it warns.  Smells similar to real lambic. Medium bodied with a strong puckering, sour mouthfeel.  Very tart with strong lactic funk and acetic solvent character.  A bit too stron in the acetone character but has nice sourness and funk along with dry earthy oak and subtle vinous fruit.  Kind of one dimensional with only subtle flavors balancing out the funk and strong solvent presence.

JaBier (4956) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle sampled at Muckfest III. Clear amber pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of nuts, cardboard, malt and tart cherries. Cherry flavor with malty accents and some nuttiness before a sour finish.

GT2 (8507) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 24, 2012
375mL thanks to LtDan. Pouring at RBSG Grand Tasting LA. Pours a full haze orange. Acid cut. Caramel nose with sweet, cherry pit and cherry pie. Rich with ripe phenols/tannins. Taste is tangy, sharp, just a tad medicinal. Very light lemon pulp, citric sourness. Palate is bubbly, seltzer. Pretty good still.
