750ml bottle. Everything you’d want for aroma in a sour ale. Murky dark hold body. Ring of lasting white head. Really nice balanced sour. Gives you the Brett aspect without being overly sour forward. Has a good sweetness for balance. Shared with four others who all raved about it.

Bottle. Pours light orange with frothy white head. Nice aroma of apples, pears, Belgium yeast, and funk. Taste of sour apples. Good Brett flavor. Crisp finish. Nice to see Sierra Nevada try something different. Will buy more to age. Very good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear sparkling apple juice color in the glass. Slight cardboard aroma with a bit of apple and caramel in the background. Clean dry and bubbly on the palate. Slight champagne flavors of pear and citrus. Overall, its drinkable but not too exciting.

Domesticated wild ale is a good description. Kinda like a real true sour beer with smooth rather than rough edges. Don't get me wrong...really good beer.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy light orange color with a very tall head and a ton of cascading carbonation. Nose has a sweat pear and lemon nose with some nice brett funk. Flavor has a strong lemon flavor up front, some modest spicy notes from the brett, light fruity pear notes and a solid funky brett finish. Body is crisp with a fantastic amount of carbonation to give that great bite you expect with the acidic sour note. Overall a very enjoyable brew. If it weren’t for the price, I think I would stock the shelves in the basement with this for future drinking.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma is moderately funky, with yeast, pears, some Belgian spices, and lemons. Flavour is quite wild and funky, with slightly tart pear skins, some Belgian yeast, barnyard funk and some moderate candied sugar, but the tartness and wild character overtake this. A little thin and unrefined, but quite drinkable. Decent stuff.

Foggy orange pour with a dense offwhite fleadiing head. Great sour aroma and taste , if you love American lagers than stay away from this one! Age this one a few year and it would be amazing! The 8.3 avb will sneak up on you.
