THE Fruit Sour tasting. Another rare one - thanks Jack. Hazy gold beer, massive pale cream coloured head. Light airy palate, dry. Floral bretty airyness! Light citrus. Light bitterness in the aftertaste. Not bad.

750 c&c from Wine and Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours very hazy orange gold with a 3 finger creamy white head. Aroma is slightly tart and smells of peaches. Med body. Foamy carb. Flavor is earthy and barnyard. It’s definitely fairly bretty. It’s oak astringent. Don’t get vanilla. Might be a bit of red grape for fruit, but it’s mostly peach. Finishes tart/sour, earthy, less bretty than the start, and quite tasty.

Light to medium sweet flavor, grass, manure, large brett character. Medium bodied with high carbonation. Lightly dry to finish with some oily grass, poop, fair bitterness. Good.

Scopey (6326) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2012
Bottle thanks to Jackl at THE fruit sour tasting. It pours cloudy light orange with a medium white head. The nose is sour apricot, peach, creamy, light sourness and apricot yoghurt. The taste is quite soft, spice, leaf/grass, orange peel, apricot, brett, earth and vinous notes with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Too sweet in my opinion. So-so.

Ernest (6164) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy/frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy dark yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (apricot), lightly yeasty (basement, barnyard), with a note of peach, light notes of plastic, lemon zest, and oak. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, fizzy/lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Finally, a Crabtree beer that isn’t infected! The aroma is pretty pleasant overall, if a bit mild, and might get better in time if there’s active Brett in the bottle...the Brett character is a bit light now, but certainly noticeable. It comes off as a tart Belgian-ish fruit beer more than anything else, but it doesn’t do anything poorly...it’s not too sweet or boozy or fruity or any number of other problems beers like this often have. It seems to play things a little too safe and simple, and it’s kinda flabby in the mouth, but that’s about it in terms of complaints. I’m never wowed by fruit beers, but for what it is it’s perfectly serviceable.

arminjewell (6104) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Pour on tap at Avery Sourfest 2012, hazy orange-yellow pour with fluffy white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, yeast, some bready and crackery malts, touch of vanilla, honey and sweet fruits are fairly hidden, a bit muddled. Taste is much clearer with some pretty clear peach up front mixing with the biscuit, hints of vanilla and lemon with a hint of brett funk going into a slightly tart middle that fades quickly, finishing fairly dry.
