Shared by daknole. Bottle pours hazy orange/amber with a thin head. Aroma shows peach, lemon, oak, and light funk. Flavor shows the same with a slight herbal quality as well as grassy/floral hops. Overall body is light to moderate and the finish is dry/tart.

Bottle thanks to GRG1313 (and I also have one in a trade thanks to tytoanderso). Pours with a hazed golden body with a small white head. Aromas are floral, estery, rose water, sour, stone fruit and lemon juice. Acid more than funk on the nose. Flavors are sour, strong acid, lemon, floral and medium tannin. Very light funk. Lively bubbles, dry and mouthpuckeringly tart.

The pour is a golden orange color with a a tall white head. There’s a light tartness to the aroma that is quite nice. A good fruitiness to it as well as a bit of malt flavor and sweetness. There is a light flavor of Sweet Tarts to the beer as well as some tart pears, lemons, and apples. A little bit of sweetness and a hint of straw and oak. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Bottle… This beer rocks!… Cloudy caramel ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma furnishes peach, fallen apricot, oak and gloriously funky barnyard notes. Medium-bodied and creamy with airy carbonation. Nicely soured. The fuzzy fruits really dance here. Lightly sweet, but quite puckering as well. Finishes tart, fruity and mildly dry. World class effort!

MartinT (7797) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 3, 2012
My Bottom Line :
Cherry and white grape fruitiness precedes this Sour Ale’s lactic sourness for an easygoing, quenching experience.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam surfs the cloudy dull amber.
-The prickling carbonation remains easy on the tongue.
-The flavor profile might be linear, but it is quite pleasant and very drinkable for a sour brew.
-Fruitiness is also quite citrusy (bacteria).
-The oak barrel character is well balanced and harmonious with the rest of the wild flavors.

Bottle. Thx for sharing, Eric!

bottle... bright dark orange, medium clarity, off white ring forms... a bit sweet for a sour, reminds me of faro, barley, wet oak, and hay, it works... again mostly sweet but more tart than the nose implies, I’d sat this is a great faro, easy to drink, smooth, nice bite, quite enjoyable and probably the best Arbor beer I’ve had

750 ml pours a lucious darker amber orange hue, healthy glow, with frothy brighter white head dies to a film, laces ok. Aromas are very fruity, with mangos and citrus, some touches of pear and apple, melon, raspberries and grapefruit seems to take a focus, lots of tropical fruit roll into the fold. Fruity pancake melange. Initial is a decent sour kick up front throwing a decent lemony lactic kick, moving into yogurt, wet oak, and touches of berry fruit. Bread, raspberries, and oak. Some wild brett, though lacto seems to take over. It’s not all that sour, just a decent edge up front dying into yogurt, and a very drinkable sour Blonde Ale. Pretty nice, nothing overbearing, actually sour (unlike a good deal of the Arbor beers). A very fruity nose, solid sour kick but very drinkable. Raspberries and tons of grapefruit, solid sourness. Not real bretty, remaining vibrant and fruity, my favorite Arbor sour to date I believe.

750ml bottle. Thanks to Adam for sharing...pours an orangey brown semi-hazy hue and topped with a soapy white head... Sour fruit and gin aromatics with peppery raspberriness upfront, somewhat sweet in the middle. Middle of the road. Tame... Flavors are sour and puckering at first with raspberry and grapefruitiness, some lemony warhead accents provide some character. Mild sourness but def kind of enjoyable. Ok I kind of dig it. A somewhat more assertive bottleworks 12 with less raspberries and more of a grapefruit citrus feel.
