16 oz. can shared by Keir- thanks again, Keir! Wow, wide range of experiences on this one. I didn’t 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.

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 isn’t into sours.

16oz can, thanks to Aaron for this. Clear orangered color. Ample khaki heads, leaves little loose lace. Fizzes away to a ring and a web. Bigger body. Medium, but smooth carbonation. More on the dry side, overall. Moderate sour taste, little alcohol bite. Light herbal hop aroma, light caramel malt. Kind of bready. All that is hard to taste amongst the sour. Nice one to enjoy with my sandwich, though.

Big thanks to Gtg642 for this one. Served in a mini tumbler.
Pours clear golden with a short fleeting head. Nose is earthy and fruity. Background funk. Flavor has nice Brett plus tropical and citrus fruits. Dry and moderately funky. Some citrus rind and light black pepper in the nose as it warms. Reminds me of the character from the White Labs Brett Trois strain. Goes down quite well.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2013 On tap at the brewery. Honey gold in color. An understated aroma, and flavor, that is yeasty and enjoyably floral, but the brett’s sourness only barely comes through. A wine mouthfeel! Overall, very much appreciable, but certainly understated.

A sour in a can! Golden amber pour with an off white head. Floral, some funkiness, some fruitiness, and citrus. Again, a sour in a can!

Sour beer in a can? WHAT?!?! Buddy in Michigan sent me 3 cans from this brewery. Never heard of them before. Enjoyed at 60F in a wine glass.
A - Very bright amber appearance. Nice 3 finger solid white head.
S - Currants and some ropey notes on the nose. Some lacto funk but it could just be a fruitiness.
T - Really nice tartness in this beer. More currants and cherries with some pineapple and honey / tart finish.
M - Medium body, very nice carbonation
O - Yeah, sour beer from a can at 9.25%..not exactly sure how to deal with this. It’s interesting, not boozy and nice and fruity.
