NikkTwist (1912) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Draft at Monks Cafe in Phila. Bottom third of the keg. Cloudy peach color with a large frothy foam top. Splashes of lace. Very juicy. Wonderful aroma of powdered sugared fruit candy sours. Pink peaches. Apricots. Nectarines. Yellow plums. Watermelon. This is likely a recent batch because it still holds on to a tremendous amount of its original fruitiness. Just enough dusty dryness for balance. Nearly perfect. Should be wonderful aged but is wonderful now!

AirForceHops (4171) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 16, 2015
750 ml bottle, thanks to Adam, thanks for getting me my whale, missed this every single year! 2013 vintage on the cork. Hazy gold color with still lasting head. Aroma is funky apricot, musty lambic yeast and light acid.

The flavor is tart and sour all together at this point. The yeast is becoming tart and souring in the finish. Carbonation is lively and nicely effervescent. Still a very mild fruit after the swallow but for sure much more tart than fruit juicy. Still a very nice drink.

Poured from bottle 9/13 thanks AdamJackson light cloudy orange very effervescent white head. Aromas of stone fruit and brett with a hint of funk. Taste is clean and crisp similar to the aroma with a lingering tartness. Nice beer.

koleminer20 (920) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Shared at a tasting hosted by Steebo on February 13. Vintage 2011. The pour is a pale yellow with a nice finger of white froth, leaving a couple spots of great lace. The aroma is lovely apricot with some strong brett on the middle. There is a little funk and some sharp tartness on the back end. The flavor is just as great. Lots of fruit, a strong tartness and a little applein there. The mouth feel is great. Lots of bubbly carbonation and a coating texture. The aftertaste is strong on sour, really tart lemon. This is great!

timothysmart (2) - New Hampshire, USA - MAY 12, 2015 does not count
4 oz pour at wild friendship blend event at allagash. Beer was poured cold, maybe 40*F so it was very tart at first sip. Nice subtle apricot tart as the beer warmed. Exceptional color and taste. Overall easily one of the best sour beers I’ve tried.

Alpha10 (415) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2015
2015/05/02 - Bottle shared at Nuetnigenough in Brussels. Pours a hazy orange honey colour with a fizzy, off white head that slowly reduces. Aroma is very fruity: huge apricot and fuzzy peaches, with hints of barnyard and oak. Taste tart citrus, apricot, peaches, hints of vinegar and mild barnyard. Lots of sour an moderate sweetness. Mouthfeel is light with lots of biting carbonation and a long, tart finish. Crisp, refreshing and delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle to glass at the brewery. Pours a hazy golden light amber color with a nice white head. Aroma is tart apricots, touch of funk. Huge sour in the flavor and finish. Absolutely delicious!
