Bacterial (1552) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Bottle from 2012 or 2011 - I can’t remember, but it has been sitting in my basement for a while. Light golden pour with just a little head. Lactic nose with hints of grape. Nice tartness in this one - very lactic and sharp. Oak is there and again some white grape astringency (in a good way).

Pours a nice golden color, with no head or lacing. Great aroma of sour apples candy and earthy oak, really nice aroma. Tastes of a mild sour and oak earthiness. Paid for it and it was worth it. Really like this beer.

Aroma is tart fermented fruit like apple, grapes subtle aged wine barrel and cheese. Taste is bitter tart sour acidic with perfume fermented apples wood and wine and slight cheese rind, leather some subtle spice and acidic. Palate is medium crisp, sharp biting and dry woodiness. Pretty complex and enjoyable!

holdenn (2080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Pours a hazy yellow with a thin white head. Lots of lactic cheese hay aromas. Lots of that tart lemon, lactic, earthy and hay flavors. The tart and juicy lemon notes are balanced really well. Dry lemons in the finish. The acidity gets strong as it warms up. But this is a solid sour.

jbruner (2315) - Athens, Georgia, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Bottle shared thanks to scotchzi! Pours a slightly hazy yellow with thin bubbly ring of head and no lacing. Aroma of sour lemon and light tropical fruits. Taste is a funky sour fruit bomb with a bubbly dry finish. This is a home run for a brewery I have not liked in the past.

Cybercat (3306) - Georgia, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Pours a clear, bright solar yellow; whitish head doesn’t stick around for long. Aroma has a strong, fruity, wine-like overtone. Flavor is more like a white wine than a beer, strongly fruity and tangy, definite notes of grapes and fruit, puckeringly sour. Firm texture is quite smooth and fizzy, leaving a tart fruity finish. If you like wild ales, I’m sure you "wood" like this one!
