COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a beer that will make you rethink your definition of beer. It doesn’t taste like any beer you’ve ever had, yet it doesn’t taste like anything else either. Pushing the limits of brewing is what makes this job so much fun. Malted barley, wild yeast, hand picked Muscat Grapes, and French oak wine barrels are just a few of the things that went into crafting this beer. Breathe deep, take a long sip, and enjoy the creation in your hand.

harrisoni (14138) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2008
Bottle at the Angry Fist of Santa tasting at Chris_o’s. Hazy pale gold, very lemony tart aroma. Bleachy lemon. A bit like a lemony saison. It’s quite a good balanced sour beer. Good palate and good lemon finish.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 19, 2007
Cloudy, blonde. Wow...gooseberries...impressive sour fruitiness. Killer citrus - grapefruit & dalandan. Way sour, kind of grapefruit juice-like, and also quite spicy. Big citrus, crazy subtle nuances that don’t quite get at what they’re getting at. Very good brew - unique, complex and challenging.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 8, 2007
(750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy yellow with a medium (quickly diminishing) white head. Aroma of mustiness, sour grapefruit (as it is peeled; the zest), and woodiness. Flavor of sour grapes, citrus, and brett with a subtle wood finish. If you like sour this is the beer for you!

Leighton (11887) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2012 Bottle at BCTC 2010. Pours light gold, hazy, with a medium off-white head. Fairly malty aroma with good sour notes and light fruits. Flavor begins with some fruity sweetness then goes quite sour with brett and acid. Medium bodied with fine carbonation and a tart character. Finishes sour and lip-puckering. Very good beer. (4.1)

Bottle at The Fruit Sour Tasting, London - thanks to Jack. Pours foggy gold with a few bubbles for a head. big funk and tang nose. Light to medium sweet, dry, fresh, plenty of lactic tang. Light bodied with soft, fine carbonation. Fresh, tart finish, lightly acidic. Very well rounded. (4.2)

argo0 (11653) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 1, 2007
(RBSG07, 750ml bottle) Cloudy lemon body, no head. Aroma is medium sweet, lemon, some cream, duskiness. Taste is medium sweet, sharp lemon. Light-medium body, some acidity. Seems one-dimensional, too tart -- could pass for an Imperial Berliner Weisse. I don’t get the devotion to this.

brokensail (11600) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 12, 2010
A: The pour is a cloudy straw color with a large white head that dies down to a thin white layer relatively quickly. S: A wonderful bright acidity to the nose with notes of lemon, green apple, and the muscat grapes used in this beer. Quite a vinous quality to the beer which I really enjoy. T: A moderate funky quality to the beer that is of the wet oak and must. The sourness is primarily lactic without any real acetic notes. The lemon and green apple character accentuates the white muscat grapes wonderfully, which provide a touch of sweetness. M: The body is on the light end of medium with a lively carbonation and a pleasantly dry finish. D: One of my all time favorite sour beers and one that I wish I could drink all the time. Just a great beer that I look forward to at every release.
