This is a special seasonal beer they are trying out. I wasnít a big fan of it. It actually tastes sour like it was skunked or old.

Nice balance between belgian spices and sour. Very drinkable. Some sour apples and berries. Not my style but enjoyed.

marcus (6342) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 2, 2013
Pours reddish copper with a modest beige head and a sour fruit aroma. There is a medium-bodied light malt flavor with brett-fueled sourness that is substantial but not overwhelming. A dry fruity finish.

16 oz. can shared by Keir- thanks again, Keir! Wow, wide range of experiences on this one. I didnít know anything about the brewery or beer going into it. Pours a clear golden color with a small eggshell white head. Aroma of peach, apricot, sugar, bretty funk, and earth. Flavor of the same fruits and funk as the nose, with sweet caramel malts and just a little metal. Light-medium bodied, with low carbonation and a fruity, sweet mouthfeel. Good sour.

ICEatALAMO (911) - Troy, Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2013
The pour is a deep orange with a red hue. The aroma shares that of a light sour. The taste for sure has characteristics of a sour, but not overpowering. A decent beverage, even for someone that really isnít into sours.
