MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2013
Draft @ FreshCraft, Denver CO. Pours a hazy golden beer without any head on top. Aroma of ripe apples, oak and some brett-like characters. Flavor is rather sour, tarty and very fruity. Sour apple influences are definitely present. Dry, oaky aftertaste and medium short finish. Decent brew.

Draft sampled at the brewpub. Pours hazy amber orange with a small off white head. Aroma of apples, brett, barnyard funk. Flavour is over moderate acidic. Getting closer to a cider than a beer. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

5oz taster poured at Avery's taproom. Smells and tastes like apples. Beer is delicious and super sour with large amount of apple. I want to drink this all the time!!! Beer is so well done!!

Azand222 (171) - Westminster, Colorado, USA - OCT 9, 2013
12 months in an oak barrel, with Granny Smith apples added for the last 6 months. The Granny Smiths are very very sour, one of my favorite sours. A sweet beer overall, light appearance with orange; thin head. Be prepared for the initial hit of sour.

Brouwerij (929) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Tap at Avery. Pours a hazy orange gold with quickly settling, small head. No lacing. Aroma is tart, sour, lactic, tart green apple. Flavor is mildly tart up front, fading into a tart apple finish. Was afraid the apple would be over the top, too fruity and dominant, however it blends seamlessly with the tartness of the beer. Moderate carbonation, medium light body, and mildly dry finish. A very tasty, fruity sour. Excellent.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 30, 2013
GABF weekend 2012. Pours with a hazy peachy hued body with a large white head that slowly fades. Aromas are of green apple, medium acidity, floral honey, vanillin, lactone, calvados. Flavors are of apple, lightly sulfury, nicely acidic. Bright fruit, strongly apple, medium funk notes and phenols. Bright, clean and acidic. Really cool fruit character!
