3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
pours amber with frothy white head.aroma is very similar to a rhine wine.slight orange and yeast to compliment it.flavor is fruity,sweet and has the tannic qualities of a chardonnay.light body,heavy carbonation,thin mouthfeel and a very dry finish.sours are definitely not something i tend to try often because i do not like the cider like qualities they tend to have.as i was drinking this beer my rating kept on going up.this is the best sour ive tried so far.it seems to have a slight chardonnay quality to it but the tannins do not become overpowering.maybe this beer is turning me on to the sours

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks Joel! Poured a cool shade of fiery medium orange.. toasted khaki head. The aroma picked up a blend of redder fruits and a bit of honey laced with funky Brett and white spices.. lots of richness to the Brett. The flavor opened with tangy oak and fruit skins, with rich fruity meat, honeysuckle, and light molasses behind.. dried floral and fruity Brett throughout.. very dry, spicy, and Bretty on the finish. Medium-bodied and dry as mentioned on the palate.. good feel and well-balanced.

Can from flandersned-thanks, Steve! Amber brown, loads of carbonation as you’d expect. Overripe pineapple predominates the nose and taste. Solid but simple.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper red, ruby when held to the light. Quickly receding white head. crystal clear. Nose is of Brett, caramel, horse blanket, mineral. Whiffs of bread. Oxidation. Alcohol as it warms. Taste is rounded and smooth. Sweet caramel up front, dry finish. More alcohol as it warms. Oxidation. Sour cherries?

(draft @ HopCat - Grand Rapids, MI - 2012 vintage) Orange/copper pour with a thin white head. Dry aroma with some mild spice and a very light funk. Flavor wasn’t sour at all. Dry and a bit tart but not much in the way of sour. More barnyard/bier de garde flavors.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Ashley's in Ann Arbor. The pour is a strange pink gold with a thin layer of white head that just won't leave. There is a little bit of lace, but nothing excessively sticky. The aroma is a little sweeter and more of a fruit dominance than a sour, which is a little surprising. The deeper you go, just more fruit. The flavor is strange. It's almost bitter as opposed to sour. No real funk, and the fruit is drowned out by the bitterness. The mouth feel is thin and well carbonated, but the aftertaste is just bitter fruit. Not good bitter fruit, but something you want to leave.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Another great gift. Pours orange-amber with a fair khaki head that leaves some spots of lace. Nose involves brown sugar, tart yeast, some funky earthy stuff, apple skin, hay and grass. Pretty sweet, fairly tart, slight bitter. Medium to full bodied, oily, snappy, tart, with a lengthy yeasty drying farmy finish. Really enjoying this. Sure it would gain some complexity with a little more age, but as is, it has plenty of good stuff going on and it’s just flat out refreshing and drinkable despite the ABV. Good stuff.

Clear and golden color. Aroma of apples and a bit of funk. Taste is a very mild sour with a lot of apple and some weirdness on the backside

2012 can. Caramel with a beige head. Sour and cider aroma. Barnyard and oddly sweet.

Can from a trade. Aroma and flavor of a Brett-conditioned pale ale. Definitely get the soured hops. Not a huge fan, but I can see it's selling points. Ok beer.
