Draft at the source. Cloudy dark amber brown, tan head, solid lacing. Aroma of acetic summer fruit. Taste is very tart, with sour peach and apicot. Too acetic for my tastes.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at brewery- Aroma of Brett and tamarind notes. A hazy plum pour with a lasting thin white ring and abundant sticky lacing. The palate is Brett, red fruit sweetness followed by a wonderfully robust sour finish lingering long into the aftertaste. Light body and moderate carbonation. Overall, if you like sours you'll like this one.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy amber. White hezd laces like a blanket. Holy cow the aroma is sour. The the flavor is all sour malt. This is the funkiest beer I’ve tasted by a mile. I don’t know whether to say its overdone or not. Way, way sour. My goodness.I think its turned to vinegar.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Draft at the brewpub, 1/23/14
Aroma: The aroma is sweet and tart, sour fruit, oak, and some vinegar
Appearance: It pours an amber color with a mid-sized beige head and average lace
Flavor: The taste is much the same, sour and a little sweet, oak notes, and an odd finish
Palate: The body is medium, it has an alright feel, and an average carbonation
Thought this one was a pretty decent, though slightly flawed sour. Certainly worth trying.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden, mostly transparent. Smells like straight vinegar, unfortunately. Fruity on the palate, tamarind shines through brightly. Ignore the aroma and I'm sold.

(Growler) clear, deep amber, wispy white bubbles. Nose of taco pits, taco seasoning, bleu cheese, stinky armpits, vinegar, gross. Taste of sweet vinegar, lightly sour, not complex, tamarind, odd, can’t get past the nasty taco arm pit smell.
