Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Richmond 17th. Medium amber, slight head. Aroma is lightly sour, lightly fruity, and a nice hit of funk. Flavor is a match, but the intensity really goes up. Really, really nice. Favorite of the day so far.

Butters (4039) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Sampled at the Richmond 17th Gathering. Bottle 88 of 370 of batch k10596. Clear amber pour with good white head. Sour acidic nose kinda reminiscent of gingerale. transfers to the flavor very nicely, some ginger, some raspberry/cherry/plum sourness. Also like sweettarts candies. Very good, but not the best i’ve had.

brokensail (15754) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Pours a brownish color with a tall off-white head. Starts off with some dark fruit and a mild tartness. There’s a little bit of hay and grass as well as some oak. Just a little bit of lemon peel. The flavor is slightly sweet with a light tartness throughout, but most notably on the finish. Some drying oak notes as well as some tannic maybe berry type notes. Overall, it’s good, but fairly simple.

nimbleprop (7349) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Sampled at the DC Local Tasting a 750ml bottle pours a hazy, caramel amber with some cloudy white head. Nose is sour cherries, vinegar, malty. Flavor is thin malts, light acid, brown malts, a little wood. Medium bodied, tart finish.

nickd717 (4113) - 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 (4303) - 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.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, 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.
