4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a beautiful clear golden amber with a decent fluffy white head. The strong, fierce aroma is more like a cider or a brandy than a beer. Flavor is quite strong, mainly fruity with some malty undertones. It goes down the pipes like a tiger on angel dust - fierce, edgy and sharp. Not for the faint of heart!

Hazy orange with a thick white head. Fruity, cellary, some woody bretta. Starts quite sweet malty developing in a superb mellow tart fruitiness with a cellar dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled during Minnesota first annual Sourfest and shared by EddieB. Pours a hazy golden orange brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipated to a fine film. Aroma of tart citrus and golden grain malt, a touch of yeast funk and some brick cheese. Taste is medium bodied, with some average carbonation with flavors of tart tropical fruit, citrus, yeast, oak and some lemon. Finish has a nice balance of golden grain malt, yeast and tart fruit.

Bottle: Poured a murky yellow orange with a thin white head. Aroma is sour fruit and barnyard. Taste is sour and bitter fruit, funky to all parts of my tongue. Very interesting to say.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy TheCheeseman. Cloudy orange-brown color, thin white head. Very mild fruity tart aroma, light oaky notes. Mild funk/tart taste, sweet dark fruits on the back end. Nice, but very low-key for a sour.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light amber, zero head. Sour oak aromas ride a lemony funked undercurrent. Similar flavors with sour lemon and wood balancing on hints of funk and barnyard. Light bodied and thin with very faint carbonation. My guess is bad bottle here. I’ll re-rate at some other point in life…
