Bottle... Murky golden ale with no head. The nose furnishes cherry SweeTarts, moderate acidity and pale grains. Light-bodied with laid-back carbonation. The flavor is very tart - not sour. No funk - just clean acidity. Short, crisp, tart finish. Nice.

Bottle. Hazy hay yellow liquid with small white head. Aroma of lemons, barnyard, earthy funk, apple skin, lacto and a weird spicyness. Taste is dry and medium sour with notes of lemons, barnyard and light apples. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Balanced and nicely tart but a bit thin.

[4738-20120818] Bottle. Floral evergreen spiced aroma. Clear, light orange yellow body with a quick foamy white head. Sour evergreen needle resin flavour has a lot of hops in the finish. Medium-full body is surprisingly sour. Delicious, strange melee of flavours comes together well. (7/3/8/4/17) 3.9

Bottle poured into glass. Shared for MikeLovesBeer’s Bday. Nice fruity aroma, citrus and orange peel. Tart flavor, pretty sour as well. A nice jaw tickler! Good showing here.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, hazy yellow pour with thin white head, aroma was very lactic, some lemon, oak, vanilla, slight biscuit, touch of slight funk, but fairly straightforward and very sour smelling. Taste is similar, some mouth puckering sour with lots of lactic acid, hints of lemon, oak and funky notes, slight biscuit, finishing very sour, slightly funky. Nicely made, but not a lot of complexity in there.

Bottle @ Crooked Stave Reserve Society bottle share. Not sure who brought this, but I was glad to finally try it. Pours a milky yellow appearance with a white head. Tangy lemon, white wine, straw, fairly funky aroma. Barnyard, lemon zesty, kind of juicy, acidic, pineapple, quite sour flavor that has quite a burn on the finish. Pretty tasty.

Soft straw gold pour with one finger of off white head. Vinous nose, lots of acidity and funk. Estery. White wine, geueze-ish and a touch of sweet citrus. Bracing acidity in the flavor with a nice yeasty balance. Very slightly acetic quality and lots of citrus.

Draft at Capone’s on Black Friday. Poured a thicker golden body with an average to fuller foamy bright white head. Aroma is tart and fruity, notes of lemons and tangerines, bretty. The body is thin and watery with soft carbonation and an acidic feel that leaves a slight burn. Flavor is very fruity overall with notes of lime, oranges and lemons, rather tropical but the sourness also has a wet nap type flavor going on. Good stuff and very citrusy.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2013 Aroma of Apple pie filling, good sweet funk and nectarines. Pours hazy blonde with film. Taste is like Apple pie, ginger ale and champagne. Very cool sour beer.
Retaste has more of an oak aged chatdonnay.
