Taste is mild, more bitter than sour. Not very sour, and surprisingly bitter. Also, some surprisingly bready/strawy flavor

This poured a murky orange color with a white head. Aroma was of caramel malt, light brett. Flavor similar, sweet, no remblence of a sour, moldy tea. Bleh.

Bottle shared by HornyDevil. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a white head. No hops left here in the aroma. Aroma is Brett and sourdough. Taste is one note, dry and slightly bitter. Not too impressed here.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Had this at an Almanac tap takeover at Uncle Henry’s Deli in Downey. This was my least favorite of their beers (which I loved). Very bitter. Some flavor of burning rubber. Drinkable, but not enjoyable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
My first Almanac that isn?t a sour bomb! Courtesy of ElGaucho, this is a nice chewy ale with noticeable lemon and funk. Leaves a clean palate and aroma is great and fruity.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle aged 9 months. Probably the most enjoyable almanac beer I've had. Has the essence of sourdough. Some brett funk. Outstanding

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle almost shared with MF666 who fell asleep. Hazy yellow with a medium/large lacing white head. Bready, earthy, herbal nose with citrus behind it. Light bodied, feels a bit grisette/saisonish with some fruity notes and bread, dough, must, dry hay and grass. Very pleasant carbonation that makes is soft and fluffy. Light dry and fruity finish. Ok.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Looks like this is a love it or hate it kind of deal. I’m not a lover unfortunately. Just a little too much sourdough spice to make this work. Aroma is light toasty bread. Flavor is definite sourdough notes with a little bit of lemon faint. Finish is light and a touch sour again. Just not working together in the best way for me.

First almanac beer that I wasn’t a fan of. Smelled and tastes like old stale bread. Flat body and finish
