3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sour and yeasty, this is lip puckering like biting into a lemon. The aroma suggests that this wild ale is at the extreme sour side of the spectrum, but until I tasted it did I realize how far it actually is. Wow.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From notes. First reviewed 8/10/2011. Poured from a 750 mL caged and corked bottle into a tulip.
Lady of the Woods has a full cloudy golden color with a creamy pangea of a white head.
The Brett funk is quite forward in the nose, with some sour green apple, pear, and white grape notes.
This is slightly sour with some pleasant barnyard funk. White grape and some pear dominate the fruit. The finish has a lingering tartness.
This is fairly dry, with a light to medium body and full carbonation.
While on my current sour kick, I developed a new rule: if all else fails, add Brett. There is enough funk and sour flavors in here to keep my palate off balance, but it is not over the top. This is a refreshing beer to relax with.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Coalhouse Pizza. This is a crisp, light ale with lots of character of white wine coupled with some woody notes from the malts. Different, but worth a try.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours pale hazy gold with a strong 2 finger head. Aroma is buttery oak, coriander, lemon peel. Taste is very buttery and tart with some funk and strawberry notes. Body is light, effervescent, and with a dry buttery tart finish. Overall, decent but nothing to write home about. A bit too woody for my tastes but really grows on you as you drink it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
