Bottle at home with my wife courtesy of Felipe. Big thanks for this one man! Pour is hazy, bright orange with a small white head that quickly dissipated and great lacing. Big funky aroma - cheesy, waxy, cat urine - lemon peel, lactic acid, a hint of vanilla, wood, and grapefruit juice. Taste is funky, basement, lemon zest, pears, green apples, white wine, oak, somewhat musty, a hint of cinnamon, and cranberries with a big sour finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Very gueuze-like and acetic, although, not overly sour. Nice beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle purchased at Nugget in Woodland, CA. The aroma on this has a lightly tart, sour character. There is some cheesiness, here, too. Later on, there is a bit of a floral bouquet. Imagine a stinky cheesemonger hawking his wares in a funeral parlor, where the mortician accidentally spilled some embalming fluid. Mildly hazy dark golden-orange body with a medium, strong, white head that leaves great lacing. Starts with some mild to moderate tartness, which isn’t obnoxious at all. A little vinous. Light cheesy funk comes through in the middle. Finishes with a slight citric lemon accidity. Good mouthfeel. Good stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to the local group for sharing. Pours a hazy amber color with a small fizzy head that fades to thin ring. Aroma has lots of red wine and brett with some flowers. Tastes like red wine, grape juice, and brett barnyard funk. Strong sourness is a bit more than I like but still pretty solid overall.

Pours a hazy golden with some floating particles and a thin white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of funk, strawberries and smelly feet. Taste is fruity (strawberries again) and moderately tart. Body is light to medium and carbonation moderate and mouthfeel a little tannic. Overall a solid fruited sour, one of Almanac’s best.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Slightly hazy amber-copper hybrid with a quickly fading beige head. Aroma of musty grapes, mildly vinous oak, some dark plum, sweet raisin, & a touch of Brett-like funk. Taste is quite tart, but not exactly "sour" or puckering. Vinous grape notes, bordering on Merlot with deeper notes of rum cherry & blackcurrant. A touch of oaky tannins towards the finish, ending with a hint of musty hay, lightly acidic lemon, & grape skins. Dry, sharp mouth feel. Overall, a very nice sour ale.
