Sour Series: Brasserie Blonde aged in oak and soured. Sodibo is a sophisticated and complex ale with a bright golden hue and moderate carbonation. It features a burst of complex fruity, spicy, sweet-tart, and earthy flavors with a quenching acidity in the finish.

Bottle, pours hazy gold with white head. Nose has a big fruity kick with lacto, raspberries, buckwheat, and maple syrup. Flavors were light, dull raspberries, grapefruit peel, lactic, and emergen-c. Thin body.

MartinT (7779) - 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!

BMan1113VR (7853) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 1, 2012
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.

tectactoe (1641) - Michigan, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle: Slightly hazy, burnt copper body with not much "head" at all, just a gray tinted, lasting collar. Aroma of moderate vinegar, lemon, boozy cherry skins, faint earthy must, & a strong, yogurt-like lactobacillus sourness present. Taste is not quite as sour as the aroma would have you believe, but it’s still a bit tart. Lacto yeast, lemon, light vinegar acidity, sharp cherry skins, & a hint of dry, musky oak in the finish. A little bit of warmth comes through, almost in the form of booze, but it’s still mostly tame. Creamy mouth feel, but this could use more carbonation. A nice sour ale from Arbor, but Framboozled is better.

brokensail (10728) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 19, 2012
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.

peteinSD (1362) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle from Sean - thanks! Clear copper colored pour with a slick of light tan foam. Vinegar, green apple, tart, earthy grain, and lemon in the aroma. Heavy vinegar/tart flavor with apple, lemon, and light grain. Slightly watery mouthfeel. Decent.

Godofthecellar (667) - NYC, New York, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle poured a dark amber no head or lacing. Smell of green apple, lemon. Flavor of apple, acetone, apple cider vinegar. Not a bottle I should have opened by myself

hopdog (8848) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2012
750ml bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with a small sized off white head. Manure (everything was smelling like manure in Mike’s basement tonight), vinegar, green apples, earth, and funk. Damn Eric for saying pickle juice.
