Tmoney99 (10540) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Draft. Poured a clear golden color with a mostly lasting frothy white head with good lacing. Moderate to heavy yeast, wood and complex fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sour flavor with a medium to heavy tart & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.

Newk (299) - - AUG 8, 2012
Poured from 750 into a tulip. Pours a medium gold color with a foamy head. Very good depth and complex aromas of funk, sour cherries, sour citrus notes, and some tart green apples. Really good medium body feel with good depth and notes of green apples, sour cherries and sour citrus’. This was a great beer. Got this from a friend and am very glad I got it. Really good depth across the board with a real nice tartness to it.

Sammy (8520) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2012
Yellow-orange coloured body with some head. Just delightful summer day beer, with some oak, spice, almost cherry tartness. Full mouthfeel. Suitably carbonated, a little aging helped. Thanks WomanCan’tSail. Very good drinkability.

Draft in 10oz snifter. This is my first sour/wild ale. Tart orange very dominant. Some sourness on palate after the fruitiness fades.

Mora2000 (5650) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of sour apple and cherry notes, as well as some biscuit and funk qualities. The flavor is similar. I get some very nice sour fruit (apples, cherries, grapes), as well as some light funk, light leather and a high level of tartness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very refreshing and easy to drink.

Glouglouburp (5977) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 3, 2012
In short: A not-too-sour very oaky fruity blonde ale. Refreshing and easy to drink for the style. Good stuff
How: Bottle 750ml, consumed when approximately 8 months of age (8 months after first rating, I’m assuming it was only brewed once). Bottle sent to me by sarro, thanks a lot Kyle
The look: Cloudy orange blonde body topped by an off-white ring of foam
In long: Nose is very oaky, lots of wood but also plenty of fruits like oranges, apples, mangos. Not a lot of bugs showing in the aroma. Taste is pleasantly not too intense. There is a nice fruitiness with grapefruits, young red apples, pineapples, raspberry seeds, tart lemons, even some strawberries. Medium lactic acid, plenty of wet oak, low-medium sourness level. Finish is astringent and with an after-taste of wet-oak. The beer intensity is relatively low compared to most American Sours nowadays. These days I find myself more often than not having a hard time drinking a full 750ml of an American sour, because the emphasis seems to be more and more on intensity. Not the case here, this was easy to drink and very enjoyable even if not overly complex. A good beer, and enjoying good craftbeer is one of the many benefits that come with being a heterosexual Caucasian man.

750 mL bottle at Ashley’s Ann Arbor. Pours golden with a white head. Sour raspberry, apple, caramel aroma. Fruity sour flavors of raspberry, lemon, perhaps cherry? Dry, sour finish. Very nice.
