corby112 (2736) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Pours a very cloudy, dark golden yellow color with a one finger white foam head that immediately settles into a lasting ring. Sporadic spotty lacing and large chunks of sediment left behind. The aroma of this beer is pretty funky with earthy farmhouse yeast notes, musty brett and lactic cheesiness. The funk is countered by other floral hops, bread, zesty spice and estery light fruit notes. The strong barnyard character is nicely complimented by the musty brett/funky yeast and lactic acid. The lactic funk is surprisingly strong giving it a cheesy Berliner feel. Still, it smells like a saison/farmhouse ale with zesty spice, citrus, bread and light fruit. Some pepper, coriander and ginger followed by sourdough bread, floral hops, lemon ring and apple juice. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, a slightly tart, acidic character, some lactic funk, citrus fruit and zesty spice. Decently sour yet very quaffable with some citrus acidity, musty bugs and lactic funk which compliment the earthy farmhouse yeast and dry spices. Crisp and refreshing with a stronger citrus presence than expected. Lemon rind/juice/acidity followed by sourdough bread and lactic funk as well as some bready yeast, ginger, clove and apple. Some lighter fruit and alcohol add sweetness before pale malt and grassy hop bitterness in the finish. This beer is pretty complex yet remains very well balanced, refreshing and easy to drink. Leaps and bounds above the regular version and my favorite of the Baladin sour editions so far.

GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, California, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Tap at Beachwood BBQ Seal Beach. Clear apple juice pour. Soapy, dwindling white foam. Sweet apple pie nose with flashes of funky sweat and vegetal cabbage. Taste is not so great up front, a lot of sweet white grape juice and cabbage. Sweaty and sweet with mild acetic bite. Not so great. Vegetal all around. Didn’t finish.

Shag (2723) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - AUG 27, 2013
This poured a cloudy golden color with a white head. The aroma contains some spices and citrus along with pears and apricot. The flavor is somewhat sour but also malty with some yams and brown sugar. Lemons show up as well. Overall this was somewhat sour but mostly confused. OK beer but not for the price.

Theydon_Bois (14327) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2013
Bottle at No Au, Roma, 21/06/13. Hazed golden with a thin off white head which clears to spotting, a few floaties are visible. Nose is tarte fruit, apple skins, dry rot, plastic notes. Taste comprises tarte fruits, soured apples, grapes, funk, farmy, straw. Medium bodied with fine carbonation, dry and tarte in the finish, gentle puckerings. Ok, not too complex or much in the way of a sour masterclass but a drinkable refreshing sour none the less.

blipp (7371) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Bottle at the 4k/5k/10k tasting. Pours gold with a white head. Grainy malts with some weird musty like funkiness, hint of fruits, and a touch of tartness. Odd, but not bad.
