4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Library Alehouse in Santa Monica CA. Pours a full haze, glowing bright orange. Wispy white lacing. Nose is really quite incredible: passionfruit squeeze, freshly blended berry smoothie, fresh peach, kumquat, and juicy Nectarine. Incredible. Taste is fruit juicy with sour nectarine, peach, pineapple, kumquat, seedy passionfruit. Sort of like, gasp, an upgrade to Russian River Temptation and Compunction. Palate is lactic to the max with powerful key lime. I don’t know this brewery, but I’m floored at how good this is. Wow wow.

Bottle thanks to the local group for sharing. Pours a cloudy light orange with a small foamy ring of head. Aromas are strawberry syrup, fresh squeezed lemons, barnyard brett funk, and wet, musty wood. Tastes like fresh strawberries, sour oranges, barnyard, and white wine. Moderately sour with a nice sharp, tart finish. Very good sour.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Thanks to Muthacack over on RBT. Pours a hazy golden color with a slight pink hue to it with a thick white head that lingers. Aroma is a bunch of funk, citrus and a hint of strawberry. The tartness in the taste is right on the money with this one. A nice blend of citrus and strawberry but it isn’t over powering. The tartness and fruit complement each other nicely. Finish is dry, tart with a pleasant fruitiness. Fantastic beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle thanks to Jimmy. Pours bright hazy yellow with substantial carbonation. Huge barnyard funk reminding me of the best of some Belgian farmhouse ales. The fruit in this beer is settled but there are hints of chardonnay wine barrels. Refreshing and delicious.. Well done. Need more from this brewery.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Soft straw blonde pour with 1 finger of thin fizzy white head. Wonderful aroma, fully ripe strawberries upfront with a wonderful lactic acidity and subtle peachy notes. Awesome flavor, full acidity upfront that builds throughout to the finish. Strawberry rules the taste with a subtle stone fruit note in the background.

Bottle at tasting. I really enjoy the berry-centric sours and this did not disappoint. Sour strawberries all over this, not overly tart but enough to make it very good. Strawberries were sublime!
