wedgie9 (1836) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 21, 2012
Tasted on a random Saturday in November 2011 with some of the Nashville guys, thanks to Curtis for this one. Pours clear, bright golden with a thin white head that leaves a nice collar of lace. The nose is lemon sour with some white wine vinegar, barnyard funk, and grapefruit (peel and fruit). The flavor is the same lemon sour with some light funk, and a touch of grapefruit bitterness. The body is light with lively, nearly sparkling, carbonation, and a long sour grapefruit finish.

EricE (1368) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Bottle thanks to BrainLair. Pours a hazy orange yellow with good carbonation. Floral and citrusy aroma. Spritzy sage and lime flavor. Very tart and prickly on the tongue. Oaky with notes of vanilla. Very dry.

BeerandBlues2 (9446) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 14, 2011
Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a medium fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is fruity esters with farmhouse and horse blanket and tart, lactic raspberry / cranberry. Flavor is lactic fruit, farmhouse yeast, light hops and a dry finish. Light body, low warmth and medium carbonation.

sonnycheeba (3362) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 14, 2011
Bottle. Pours light, hazy gold with thin off-white head. Aroma is sour, sweetbread, flowers, and citrus fruits. Taste is very sour with flavors of lemon, grapefruit, vinegar, and pineapple. Light body and med-high carbonation. Great sour beer.

Nickls (1814) - SE DC, Washington DC, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Bottle. Fizzy white head that doesn’t last long, on a hazy bright hay yellow. Vinous, woody, slightly sour, and some slight white grapes in the aroma. Very vinous, sour, funky, and nearing on some vinegar and geuze notes which is pretty interesting given the base brew before aging. Some grassiness and hay also come into the flavor. Lighter body that’s got some OK carbonation, but a bit subtle. Sour indeed, and pretty dry and puckering.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Light, crystal clear straw pour with a small ivory head. Aroma of grapefruit pith, lemon rind, and funky cheese. This one sizzles on the tongue like fresh Serpent Stout...quite the sensation. Flavor also shows some oak, pineapple, mango, and a touch of honey. Quite good!

callmemickey (2545) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Pale yellow. Crystal clear. Turbulence from the pour mustered only the faintest traces of a head. Perhaps a wisp or two of lace. S: Raw brett notes. Some mineral-like earthy notes and whiff of lemon. T: Earthy funk - lemon and some tannic oak. Neither offensive nor interesting. Just, well, bland. M: Moderate carbonation, but a slightly prickly feel from the brett. Dry finish. O: Not much to get excited about here. If the flavors were more developed and assertive you might get something close to Orval or El Diablo Deluxe. Unfortunately, this beer doesn’t get there.

Drink4Satan (676) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Batch 1, bitch! Pours a brilliant, clear straw colour, offensively effervescent, and has the rockiest, whitest head I’ve EVER seen. Holy tits! I swear a gorilla nipple is popping out of my glass. Glob-a-dob-a-ding-dong lacing. The aroma stinks of the loveliest mildewy flowers. Spruce tips and some subdued zest in the nose as well. Tart, zesty, sprucey flavour with a nice, cheesy lactic tang. Minimal barrel character, but it would not really benefit from too much oak. Spritzy (but not abrasive) and thin bodied, yet velvety mouthfeel. Wet stone. Make a better sour wit than this. You won’t!

zdk (1809) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 15, 2011
bottle at 5k tasting - hazy yellow pour with fluffy white head. Arouma is powerful lemons and grapefruit, very earthy, woodsy in the nose as well. Sweet caramel malts balanced by a nice sour and bretty funk. Citrus fruits and a dry finish. Damn tasty

From a bottle poured a straw color with almost no head. Tart malty flavor with a lasting aftertaste.
