3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Rustico, wish I could have had the New Belgium version next to it, but alas the distro networks aren’t quite there yet for VA. Poured a dark golden color, no real head to note. Aroma was a bit sour berries with some mild floral notes. Flavor was tart berries with a huge floral component. The beer was certainly not as sour as I was expecting, but enjoyable none-the-less.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
In short: A slightly funky and not-so-sour Sour/Wild flowery golden ale. Lovely
How: Tap at Extreme Beer Fest 2011
The look: Cloudy golden body topped by a medium beige head
In long: Nose has a bit of funk, dust and something musky/wood-ish. The beer has a big body full of grainy cereals with taste dried fruits, dry flowers, tannins, acidity, very mild sourness. One of the too many beers I had on that day. It’s not a precise deScription but you can bullshit people into thinking that if you wanted you could add more to a beer deScription by ending a rating with five periods…..

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml corked bottle got from the brewery on its release. Hazy orange color with huge thick head. Highly carbonated. Excellent lace all the way down. I’m giving it a 4 on appearance. Mildly tart Belgian aroma, with berry, floral notes, and Brett. Pleasant on the nose. Bretty and somewhat tart flavor with Belgian yeast, light fruits, lemon/citrus, flowers, and mild funk. Not REAL sour or tart, the berries give it enough sweetness to balance it out. It does get more sour as it warms. Overall pretty good.
