Sweet spiced pumpkin aroma. Bright amber color with and short off tan head. Mellow for the first second then the tang than the sour kick to a dry finish.

(500ml bottle) Pours a clear orange body with a small white head. Aroma of orange slice gummy candies, earth, and lemon. Flavor of earth, oak, lemon, apple, and orange with a bone dry finish.

bhensonb (11382) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle from Bine & Vine. Pours hazy copper with a transient, fizzy, beige head. Aroma is rather Belgian/Flandern. Fruit. Berries. Perhaps even myrtile. Very unexpected. Med body or so. Flavor is woody/astringent sour. Darker berries. Very astringent. Very fruity. Strongly sour. Not very barnyard. It is rather amazing.

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 30, 2014
A steady pour into my large Tripel Karmeliet tulip produces a fat-one-finger thick, tan colored head. The beer is an amber color that shows a copper / pale amber hue when held up to the light. the aroma has a ripe, tart fruit character to it that leans towards pear, super ripe apples and even quite a bit of cider like character. The fruit character gets more prominent the more I dig into this beer; a funky berry character, sort of like a tropical berry of some sort, perhaps gooseberry, and some citrus leaning grapefruitish character.

Sour with lots grapefruit like flavors and tartness up front, the beer is quite refreshing. The body has a bit of viscosity and texture to it, though it remains on the drinkable side; a light carbonation adds a spritzy character to the texture, and there is a bit of barrel influenced that adds some tannic texture. The finish has a toasted oak character to it that accentuates a toasted, whole grain cracker like note towards the finish. Fruit flavors of cider mixes with grapefruit, as well as a bit of rounded berry character, and some gooseberry notes. A touch vinous in a desert wine fruitiness (not the sweetness though), with a touch of botrytis funk, definitely woody, vanillin, and hints of buttery oak character.

Definitely a tasty sour, it has a very restrained funkiness to it, if at all (other than the sourness), and gets its complexity from the barrel character, and the fruity complexity. A nice beer, that I am definitely enjoying.

JustDrinkIt (261) - Arizona, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Red-orange pour, no head. Aroma of lightly sour citrus and lychee. The flavor is more of the same, somewhat stale flavor. Honestly not sure if it’s a funky sour or a bad bottle...

krumbum (523) - truckee, California, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Cloudy amber constantly bubbling. Mashy citrus sour scent. Bitter sour leaves palate slightly stained. Let it sit and the citrus and sour melds to a great finish.

mrhoppy (1285) - Santa Clara, California, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Nice crisp sour. great wispy head hanging around the top of the beer the whole time. Really tasty malty beer flavor up front and sour on the back end. Lemon cherry oak barrel slight bitter Pretty impressive. I hope they do a lot more sours. High five to the brewer. I loved it!

Mrnoluv (173) - long beach, California, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Very funky, sweaty kind of smell, the taste is bitter, sour, tones of CO2, barley/wheaty/citrus taste, but on the swallow lives just enough sourness. Wish it had more kick, but that orange peel taste and sour notes do it for me. Like this one.

I don’t much care for the new Cismontane labels but I do like the little touch of the dog and the citrus slice. This little part works. And so does the beer. This liquer looking beer pours without a head and the aroma is not blasting sour at you. Much more restrained . More cognac to my nose. But the taste gets back down to sour business. Tart on the lips and quite a bit of citrus that is tempered by the wood notes. Not tangy but mellow and sour at the same time. Nice and complex. Thanks to the Cap’n for voyaging down south to pick this beer up for me.

Bottle @ Bobby’s house. Hazy orange pour with a white head. Peach, apple, orange, and plastic. Some hints of rubber, nail polish remover, and lemon. Flavor is bitter and sour. Lots of plastic, some rubber, and lemon. Hints of green apple and orange. Not very good.
