thome50 (1246) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Hazy pour at Stone Sour Fest. Aroma of cantaloupe and some various fruits but really not that heavy on the aroma. The taste is even more bland. Belgian something in here with some slight fruit notes and a tart more than sour note.

On tap. Hazy orange pour, small white head. White grape, nice fruitiness, citrus, bread, acetic tartness, and light notes of funk. Moderately sour. A nice beer, not a crazy sour.

HonusWagner (1872) - Florida, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Makes me think of a triple with a little bit of funk to it and a slight tannic edge. A bit heavy on the booze-weight for something like an outdoor Sour Festival, but pretty good.

egajdzis (5699) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2012
[Draft @ Surly Goat] Hazy orange golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of brett, vanilla, wood, wild yeast, some toast, and a type of wine. Taste was really nice, with the brett, wood, and vanilla that was slightly tart, but dry, and not sour at all.

brokensail (14045) - San Leandro, California, USA - MAY 16, 2012
A hazy golden orange color with a white head. Intense fruitiness on the nose. Lots of pineapple, tropical fruits, citrus, and melon (mostly cantaloupe). A moderate tartness and a bit of grass and green apple. The flavor isn’t all that tart, but the great fruit character is still there. Not too much funk to it, a bit of white wine, and maybe some oak. Really a nice beer.

Good sour nose on this one that doesn’t drink uber tart. Real nice cherry and plum notes. Pours an orange color. Has a slight sour yeasty funk to it. Sampled at Maximilliano’s in Highland Park.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 8, 2012
On tap. Pours with a hazed golden hued body with a small white head. Aromas are vinous, wine barrel, oak, fruity esters, mild acetic, tart, dry, with some good funk. Flavors are medium to medium strong sourness, good acid (especially for a Craftman sours as mark seems to keep them on the lighter side of things), light bready malt character, vinous, white wine. Medium-strong brett flavors with a light waxy character. Medium-lively bubbles, dry finish. Lightly warming.
