nickd717 (3653) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 15, 2012
750ml bottle sampled at a tasting. Hazy orange amber color with a one-finger off-white head. The aroma is very acetic with tart fruit notes, funk, and caramel. Soured caramel malt base with a good but rather shallow flavor. Acetic tartness is the main component, and there are some definite dark fruit notes. Medium-bodied with average acidity for the style. Not much better than middle of the road for the style overall.

MrChopin (3726) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 8, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2012 murky fiery amber, thin cream ring. Nose is lightly acetic, pineapple, lightest bit of egg. Flavor is more noticeably acetic, some lemon ad leather, Brett more noticeable near dry, mineral finish. Pleasant but inexpressive.

GT2 (9347) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 8, 2012
750mL thanks to rayl101. Pours a clear orange candy amber with a thinner beige head. Weak retention and small lace. Nose is muted: small caramel, lemon zest, sour cherries. Taste is hugely tart with a lot of lemon and mild paper. Plasticy cherry character. Effervescent palate. A little bland actually with hints of sharp cherry but no character coming forth. Lots of lemon tea character. Decent. It is highly drinkable and neutral...just doesn’t seem very special.

Hammy78 (870) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2012
On draft at the Bells Cafe in Kalamazoo Michigan. Pours a dark reddish colour with a small head that recedes to nothing. Smells rather sweet . Tastes is well you guessed it sour. I got a little cherry and almost a touch of vinegar in there. It was damn sour. I enjoyed it a lot.

On tap at Bell’s. Amazing flavor. Honestly one of the best beers I have had. Tremendous sour note with no overreaching sweetness, complex flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
