3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A basic straightforward acidic and moderately sour golden ale. Very simple. Below average for the style
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed when about 1 year of age. Sent to me by MrChopin. Thanks a lot Kevin
The look: Slightly cloudy golden-orange body topped by a short-lived white head
In long: Nose is acidic, moderately funky and with some citrus notes. Taste is medium-high acidic, some white wine, citrus fruits, sour notes of white grapes, sawdust. Finish is dry, dusty and a acidic. Body is a bit slim. Overall this came through as a very very straightforward acidic sour ale. The intensity was there, but the complexity wasnít. I had not problem finishing my 750ml bottle but it was one of the least uninteresting American Sour Iíve ever had. For me this was just another minor disappointment in a long list of daily disappointments. I am so low on life that when I smoke weed I donít get high, I get medium.

Deep golden pour. The nose is incredible. Funky spicy nose. Tart barnyard and sour fruit. A little bit of cheesiness and a kiss of soft bretty pineapple flavour. Long lingering fruitiness. The flavour is less tart than the aroma suggests, but it has lots of complexity. Rich, fruity and funky. Really delicious brew. Bright and fresh.

750ml bottle shared courtesy of Ryan. Poured a medium and lightly hazy golden color with an averaged sized head. Aromas of funkiness, woodiness, grapes, and berries. Thinner tastes of the same. Lighter funkiness and on the sweeter side.

On draft at the GL. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with a medium sized white head. Aroma of funk, lemon zest, honey and tart fruit. Taste is much the same as the aroma.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle; thanks to goryshkewych for the trade; pours cloudy light orange with faint white head; almost flat but there was a huge pop on the cork; apricots, white grapes and nice acidic level overall; light, effervescent and some cream and vanilla; a little oaky flavors from the barrel with a soft, fluffy tartness; quite nice, but not quite up to the Oude Tart in a side by side

Bottle at Andy and Maxís fantasy tasting - great beer. LActic and acetic, though not quite puckering. Caramelized banana sweetness. The balance between sweet and sour could be a bit better, but Iím starting to appreciate these sour ales more and more.

Had this 5/7/10 on-tap at Bullfrog (Jaspers release day).
A-Body is a uniformly translucent dark, slightly dingy golden yellow hue. Served with only a thin white fizzy collar-but good retention of the collar.
S-Nose offers lots of lemon and funkiness as well as hints of vinegar and acidic tartness. Nose is quite Gueze-like.
T- Moderate presence of vinegar upfront as well as tart lemon and a light tart acidic sourness. Finish is very good as it is a balance of vinegar, bready yeast, and acidic tartness. A slight sweet bready yeast lingers on.
P- Soft carbonation and a light to medium weight body.
O- This is a very good beer. Pretty much Gueze-like. Sour, but not incredibly sour, tasteful, and balanced. My favorite thing about this brew is the slight sweet breadiness that lingers beneath all the initial flavors. Wonderful opportunity to have this on-tap!
Serving type: on-tap
