COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian wheat beer aged in white wine barrels and allowed to become very slightly sour. This is a wonderful session beer for those of the “sour and funky” persuasion.

Draught. Pours a mostly clear light amber color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose has some bread and yeast up front, with wheat coming through underneath as well as some sour fruit. Taste is slightly sour, with wheat and yeast again coming through.

Revo. Just enough sour to keep it gods. Grass, tons of lemon, those terribly sweet yum-yum pickles that fools put on hamburgers, dry and tart. Crushed it without thought so I could get into something more excellent.

Draft at SB. Go, Fal, go! Man, this beer is rad. Pours a cloudy dark gold with a loose and sudsy white head. Bit tangy nose, hard to pin down, showing faint hints of candied lemons and grapefruits, a bit of sweet pickle, a bit of wet grassy funk, I dunno, it’s a beautiful and refreshing tartness as soon as you get a whiff. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, bread crusts, a bit of candied lemon, some mild sweet pickle, maybe a soft and subdued balsamic note way in the background. Tough to dial in precisely. Really gorgeous, and seems very singular. Not a lot of other beers around exactly like this one; maybe none. These days, that’s saying something--and this beer is not only new and different in its way, but it’s also made very well. This one could be an all-the-time beer, at least for sourheads.

reebtogi (4520) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 16, 2015
Pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Edmonton pours a slightly hazy pale copper color with a finger of white head that leaves only a small trace of lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild lemon and some cereal grains. Taste is a light lemon tartness with a grainy malty sweetness and a moderately dry finish. Light bodied with adequate carbonation. Overall, a decent brew for the style, quite tasty and balanced.

Draft. Light hazed gold. Decent Brett character tropical and lmon. Very light lac to. Overbearing wheat. Let it get more sour.

This beer has a bright red apple color. It has a slightly sour flavor. It is almost like a cider but has a really good sourness to it. I really really like it. Anderson valley is one of my favorite breweries. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On cask at Firkin Firkin. Very cloudy pour. Aroma of buttered popcorn, white wine. Tastes nutty wood popcorn. Strong lemons acid. Acidic creamy palate yet light. Chalk it down as a good food-like beer.

jbruner (2732) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 27, 2014
Pours a clear golden yellow with big fluffy white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is nice wheat malt with a hint of sour funk and musty grapes. Taste is more toward the funk and a nice balance of sour and wheat. Good carbonation, solid beer.

illidurit (2224) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 1, 2014
On tap at Beercraft. Pours pumpkin with a light tan head. Aroma is a little funky and horsey, dust and lemon candy. Flavor offers rough grainy notes along with a mild sourness. Better than expected for AV.
