3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a GABF bottle, pours clear salmon amber with a soapy head. Nose is big wine barrel, lightly acidic, red berries, some tropical fruits, passionfruit, a weird, off, diapery note. Mouth is refreshingly sour on the front, lots of red berries and tropical fruits, medium acidity. Reminds me of Allagash Interlude but not as tight, a bit more acidic. Pretty nice.

At The Local Beer Bar in Eureka, CA on draft. Pours a cloudy amber with a nice off-white head and good lacing. Nose is a great sourness . Medium in body and very smooth of mouthfeel for a wild ale. Flavor of stone fruits with a wine like finish probably from the wine barrels. Delicious.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the Bistro Barrel Aged Beer Fest. Pours a hazy copperish amber with a small white head that disappears relatively quickly and leaves little lacing on the glass. The aroma is some brett, a bit of oak, and a light peppery not. Pretty bland. Taste is some bretty funkiness, a bit of oak, and some light lemon. Finishes with a light tartness. Light, watery body. Low carbonation. A pretty bland, boring beer. Not really worth trying.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tulip pour at RnH w James. Light red/amber pour and small head. Aroma is kind of weak, some light fruit. Palate is very tart with heavy notes of light fruit with some faint vinegar and a noticeable bitterness in the finish - unique among sours Iíve tasted. Iíd call it a "soft" sour in that itís tart with indistinguishable light berries/fruits and low acidity. Would definitely order again. Nice.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tasting notes from 5/09. On tap @ the truth. I had also had this one a NOTB 09 but have a better memory of it at the dove. Poured out a reddish brown minimal lacing and head. Interesting nose, maybe some sourness or smoke? Seemed unbalanced sharp sourness that didnít come together in the end. A good try but just didnít pan out for me.
