(750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) hazy medium orange, effervescent bubbles, ring of fine tan bubbles. Nose of apples, barrel, caramel, tart, smells delicious and rich. Taste is really nice and sour, cranberry, seltzer water, great tart linger, dried cranberries. Great balance and well carbonated.

Pailhead (5820) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUL 25, 2011
Bottle: The aroma consists of strawberry candies, raspberry, light lemon, cinnamon, and oak. It pours a cloudy/murky brownish-orange with a small beige head that fades to a thick ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of strawberry candies and lighter raspberry. The finish quickly hits pretty hard with sour lemon, citrus, and a hint of oak. At times itís mouth puckering. Other times, the sourness seems to be eased by the sweet strawberry. Light-medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, itís very tasty, but my only slight complaint is that the strawberry flavor comes across as artificial or candy-ish at times. Generally, while I like strawberries, Iím not a big fan of strawberry candies. With that said, itís not like the flavor is overbearing by any means.

Bottle purchased a couple of summers ago. Clear amber in color with a thin off-white head. Aroma of malt, oak and some fruit sweetness with some sour esters. Malty and somewhat herbal flavor with a bit of caramel character before a tart fruit finish.

I didnít know this was so rare, but Iím happy to have sampled the whole of my bottle. Hazy deep copper coloured body with a nice off-white head that fades relatively fast with a bit of yeast sediment noticeable on the bottom. Aroma of sour cherries, tart raspberries, a touch of oak, some very minor malts and a good sweetness. Medium-bodied; Assertive sourness noticeable up front with cherries and raspberries both noticeable and a good tart puckering maltiness also around. Aftertaste shows a more well-rounded, complex note with some light malt, sweetness and more fruit flavours. Overall, a very nice representation of the style and a great beer to sample if you havenít had the style much, especially from a brewery in the states, especially Michigan. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from Merchantís in Dearborn, Michigan on 28-April-2011 for US$15.99 sampled at home in Washington in celebration for my birthday past on 10-July-2011.

bytemesis (4962) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle (2013) with thanks to northernbrews! Pours crystal clear amber with a small off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving some lacing. Aroma is tart oaky lemon. Flavor is medium tart, fruity, lemon, oak, a bit of white grape, touch of musty funk. Medium body, low carbonation. Pretty tasty, but drinks like the base beer of something else...

Thanks to GatorGuy92 for sharing this one. Cheers, Matt! Pours a hazy straw yellow with a white head. Nose is some light malt, some tartness, some mild earthy funk, and some sour bite. Flavor is similar with tartness, oak, and a sour bite with a hint of malt. Medium in body and nice overall.

tap. Amber with small head. Pleasantly sour with brett flavor. Very easy drinker -- would be a good beer to introduce the style to someone.

superspak (3615) - Michigan, USA - NOV 20, 2013
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, 2013 vintage. Pours lightly hazy light orange amber color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clingsaround the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big sour apple, cherry, lemon, pear, grape, clove, pepper, hay, straw, vinegar, oak, leather, musty funk, white wine, herbal, light honey, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of oak, malt, and wild yeast esters; with good strength. Taste of sour apple, cherry, lemon, pear, grape, hay, straw, vinegar, clove, oak, leather, musty funk, white wine, herbal, light honey, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy/fruity acidity on the finish; with lingering notes of sour apple, cherry, grape, pear, lemon, hay, straw, vinegar, oak, clove, pepper, leather, funk, white wine, light honey, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity and balance of oak, wild yeast, and malt flavors; with a great acidity/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and moderately acidic mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent sour blonde ale style. All around great complexity and balance of oak and wild yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on with moderate acidity. A very enjoyable offering.

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, Iíd sat this is a great faro, easy to drink, smooth, nice bite, quite enjoyable and probably the best Arbor beer Iíve had
