Nickls (2374) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - AUG 19, 2016
Tap. Lightly hazy orange yellow, white head. Brett leather, juicy and piney hope presence in the aroma. Is this trying to be an amped up Orval but less yeasty? It fucking works. Leathery, hoppy, some pear and hay. Medium chalky body.

Bottle thanks to Ryan. Pours very fluffy with a nice brett nose. Flavor overwhelmed by brett but there’s a nice tartness to this too. Light body. Very drinkable.

glennmastrange (2666) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Bottle. Moderate to heavy straw and hay for the malt, fresh cut grass and lemon peel for the hops, moderate barnyard and musty for the yeast, with coriander, ginger and unripe pear in the background. Head is average size, frothy, white with good but slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is pale amber. Flavor starts faintly sweet and moderately to heavily acidic, then finishes moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is medium, dry, with a fizzy carbonation and a lightly astringent finish. This Sour Ale packs quite a punch, maybe a little over the top but there are a lot of good aromas and flavors in this beer.

rondphoto (4059) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 29, 2016
bottle @ The Beer Trappe / Lexington KY --- Aroma of tart citrus. Hazy medium orange amber color, ivory head that stays at one finger, strips of lace. Light malt moves smoothly to bright citrus hops and light carbonation. The sweet and bitter complement and support each other as they move to a lingering finish. A big brew with a light expression, if that makes sense. I can’t believe I’ve consumed this in five minutes! Great stuff. I will find it again.

jflopsu (1197) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 23, 2016
Pours a lightly hazy gold with white head. A citrus hop and fruit aroma. A nice mix of flavors for a hop head having a sour - citrus hops, light tasty fruit malts, and pine. A lingering bitter hop taste with some fruity malts.

neepsntatties (1763) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 14, 2016
On tap at Crooked Stave. Colour...cloudy gold with a thick head. Nose...lightly funky and definitely bretty with some horse blanket and then loads of fruity hops. Palate...brisk, fresh and inviting with tart and tangy bretty notes and crisp, zippy hops. The mid palate is full and round and the finish is delightfully tangy and taut.
