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.

Draft. Nose is faint lemon with some herbal notes. Hazy deep gold. Taste is quenching, spritzy grainy wheat with a citrus twist. Not very tart but just enough to dry it out and make it refreshing. Dang good.

DiarmaidBHK (4155) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2016
Draft at Thirsty monk. Pours golden with an inch of white foam. Doesn't leave much lacing in the glass. Lovely white wine notes on the nose. Solid sour horse blanket notes combine with the white wine notes. Finished clean. Nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jmgreenuk (7468) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 28, 2016
Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Changkat, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a hazy reddish brown with a thin broken white head. The aroma is acid citrus. The flavour is light sour with a crisp, light, grainy fruit, light vinous, light dough biscuit palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A fine session "sour". So much better than I expected.

alexsdad06 (8917) - Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball from notes. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale wheat malts, tart citrus, some funk, oak, a shot of white wine spritzer, ok soft sour.

Tmoney99 (13342) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 17, 2016
Draft. Poured hazy dark amber color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate wheat and sour yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sour flavor with a medium sour finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable beer.

phaleslu (9310) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2016
Draft at Ei8ht Ball, served in a flight. Pours a cloudy orange with a hint of red and a small white ring that lasts quite a while. Notes of vanilla, stone fruit, oak, brown sugar, fruity funk, wheat, and a bit of earth. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a tangy, sour, sweet mouthfeel. Should definitely be reclassified as a sour/wild ale, but I’ll leave that up to the California admins.

Rating #1492 - The Columbus Review - 3.13.2015 On tap @revolutionyeg #SourNFunk2015 Expectations shattered. Was expecting a mildly funky belgian style wheat beer. Hazy golden pour, bubbly white head. Aroma is brett and oaky chardonnay. Medium carbonation, crisp mouthfeel, lots of barrel and funk notes accented by soft fruits, citrus. Delightful

obguthr (5587) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Crabapple nose, slight touch of butter. Hazy amber, medium head. Crabapple, twigs, funk. Finishes more distinctly wheaty. Light body, easy carbonation. Quite enjoyable when viewed as a nice sour ale. Probably should be reclassed as the catch-all sour/wild ale.
