3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2013 Bottle... Berliner Bash on the Bay 2013... Cloudy deeply-golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The bouquet delivers a melange of fruity, citrusy, acidic and lightly funky notes. This is so citrusy, it almost smells like orange juice. Light-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Fruity, citrusy, tart flavor. Not sour. Finishes crisp, tangy and bone-dry.

Smells great! Oaky wine barrels, grapes like no tomorrow, infectiously tasty yeast. Soured fruit and cabernet barrels; refined acetic profile. A damn tasty sour.

Pours medium amber, a glowy brown-ish orange. Somewhat cloudy. The head is small to medium and slightly yellowed white. Fine foam. Most of the head dissipates after a minute, but thereís a nice blanket left over. Some lacing. The aroma has a very nice fruit flavor, and you can really pick out the grape varieties and plums. Itís juicy and sweet with a refined, musty fruit skin edge. The wine barrel adds a deeper fruit and oak flavor. Quite a nice combination. My only complaint is that there seems to be a touch of butter in there, though that will probably fade away with time and I seem to be more sensitive than most about such things. The taste starts with that sweet, juicy fruit (and the touch of butter) before it gets tarter and oakier. The finish is dry and packs a good tart bite. Medium sour. Lots of fruit. Very good after a hot day. Mouthfeel has prickly carbonation and some nice pucker. Mild to medium tannic from the barrel. Iíve liked both of these Farmerís Reserve sours quite a bit - significantly more than when I tried them on tap, for some reason. Itís great to see Almanac put out some better stuff, particularly sours, which seems like a natural area for them (and the sour version of their first beer was excellent). Iím definitely looking forward to the next round of Farmerís Reserves.

Bottle via trade. Poured a tea brown body under a smaller mostly white head. Aroma was tart and loaded with sour acidity, grapes, white wine, funk, medium bodied with average carbonation and a long lingering sour sour finish. Flavor is the same as the aroma, sour and funky with notes of white wine, grapes, lemon, oak. This is one great beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a copper color from the bottle with aromas of plums, light wet wood, vineous notes, light nuts and some light sour barnyard. Flavors are the same, the grapes and wine are subtle so is the sourness. Insanly drinkable all day.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours amber with a thin white head. Sour/acidic, grapes, plum, oak, a little sweet at the finish. Not as intensely sour as some other sours which makes it very drinkable.
